After the long debut trailer, and the shortened theatrical trailer for the adaptation of Cloud Atlas from Andy & Lana Wachowski and Tom Tykwer, it's hard not to be excited for the ambitious project. Now a new poster has shown up before the premiere of the film hitting the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival, and while it's not anything special, it does showcase most of the big name cast, including a tattooed Tom Hanks. Though it seems to take on the more traditional floating head, blockbuster poster approach, there's not much that will sway my excitement for this film when it hits theaters everywhere next month. See below!
Here's the new poster for Wachowskis & Tom Tykwer's Cloud Atlas. Updated with clean high res version:
Cloud Atlas is the ambitious adaptation of David Mitchell's novel, co-written/directed by Andy and Lana Wachowski (Bound, The Matrix, Speed Racer) and Tom Tykwer (Run Lola Run, The International), that features six century-spanning storylines, all using the same actors playing characters across time and space. The film explores how the actions and consequences of individual lives impact one another throughout the past, the present and the future. Action, mystery and romance weave dramatically through the story as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero and a single act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution in the distant future. Warner Bros has Cloud Atlas set for release on October 26th. Thoughts?
