A stunning Cloud Atlas movie trailer (with comments by Liviu Suciu)


David Mitchell's Cloud Atlas (FBC Rv) is one of the few novels of our new millennium about which I strongly feel that it will "live" and be read for a long time. Its special structure and the succession of storylines which are part of why the novel is so mind-blowing, do not seem well suited to movie adaption, while David Mitchell has stated that a direct movie adaption seemed pointless to him, like an audio book with added video.

So taking up the challenge in what will be the most expensive German movie of all time,  Lana Wachowski, Tom Twyker and Andy Wachowski working with an international all star cast headed by Tom Hanks and Halle Berry and with the enthusiastic participation of David Mitchell who will have a cameo in the movie, went beyond the book itself and made a movie that follows its six storyline but also makes explicit the reincarnation links betweern them, links that were only hinted in the novel.

How does it work, well we will see after October 26th when the movie debuts in theaters, but the stunning extended trailer below made it a must for me!

Wow. Just, wow. Now that is a stunning trailer, and, what's more, the length of it (more than 5 minutes) is astounding compared to most other trailers!

I haven't read the book, but I'll immediately hunt for a copy once I'm done with my current one! Thanks a lot for sharing!

Thanks for the comment! I was also surprised by how good the trailer was

Same for me, this trailer is so good that I now desperately want to read the book before the movie comes out.

I hope this is a sign of things to come from the Wachowski brothers, we know that they have the potential to make the amazing movies, and the potential to make the most confusing, boring, and ridiculously bad movies.

Let's keep our fingers crossed that the movie delivers on the promise of the trailer!
