Warner Bros has just debuted the full theatrical trailer for Cloud Atlas, co-directed by the Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer, featuring six storylines and a cast that plays various roles in all of them.

Here's the full theatrical trailer for the Wachowskis & Tom Tykwer's Cloud Atlas, in high def via Apple:
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?
