Extended “Cloud Atlas” 6 min Trailer Arrives on-line

Cloud Atlas is an upcoming epic adventure-drama film written and directed by Lana Wachowski, Tom Tykwer, and Andy Wachowski on a budget of $100 million. The film is based on the 2004 novel of the same name by David Mitchell. With an ensemble cast to cover the film's multiple storylines, production began in September 2011 at Studio Babelsberg in Germany, Mallorca and Scotland. The film is scheduled to be released on October 26, 2012 by Warner Bros.
Intriguing doesn't come close to capturing the swirl of mystery around Cloud Atlas. Not only have Andy and Lana Wachowski and Tom Tykwer adapted the seemingly unadaptable in David Mitchell's multi-genre Matryoshka doll of a book, but they've done it with actors playing multiple roles in a variety of weird and wonderful locations and time periods.
“We thought about these individual characters as aspects of larger characters,” Lana Wachowski tells Empire Magazine. “Their lives are interwoven over one big story that takes place over a thousand years.”
