The internet delighted in the 6-minute Cloud Atlas trailer released at the end of July. Now, the second trailer has dropped. This one's only two-and-a-half minutes, but it actually reveals a lot more about the film. Check it out:
Previously unbeknownst to me (and maybe to anyone who hadn't read the book by David Mitchell), there's a bit of reincarnation-y business at play here. Most of the film's fantastic cast play multiple characters, including Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jim Broadbent, Susan Sarandon, and Hugo Weaving (The Hobbit).
Told in a series of intertwining narratives by three different directors--Tom Tykwer, Lana Wachowski, and Andy Wachowski--Cloud Atlas tells the journey of a soul through human history.
Cloud Atlas premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 28. It hits theaters October 26.
