First Two Photos from 'Cloud Atlas' Reveal Tom Hanks & Halle Berry
Time to meet Tom Hanks and Halle Berry all over again. In the new Wachowski movie. With only three months until release, and a premiere at TIFF this fall, the Cloud Atlas adaptation finally seems to be getting revealed. EW.com has posted the first two official photos from the movie in our very first look at Tom Hanks and Halle Berry, as well as Jim Broadbent and Ben Whishaw in the film. Remember, at least for Hanks & Berry, this is only one of six of their looks/costumes as part of the different storylines in this. "We thought about these individual characters as aspects of larger characters," said Lana Wachowski. "Their lives are interwoven over one big story that takes place over a thousand years." Whoa. Excited for more.
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 set Cloud Atlas for release October 26th this fall. Curious?

Apparently Tom Hanks's grandmother knit him a mo-hair hoodie.

I'm assuming that's Hanks portraying Adam Ewing. Funny I had just mentioned this film in the Life of Pi article. Really can't tell much obviously but I'm excited to see this great book come to life. Don't think it'll be for everyone but glad it got made. I read the Wachowski's had to go outside of Hollywood to get the film made and get the financing. Hope it pays off huge for them

Maybe they will finally catch lightning in a bottle again. At least that's what it's looking like what happened with The Matrix. I know poeple will try to come up with reasons to justify another movie by them but the fact is they've only ever made one stand-out quality film: The first Matrix movie and ONLY the first one.

Hah... check those dumbass comments. Kids need to go read a book! This is an incredibly ambitious narrative, far from normal Hollywood stuff. Hats off to the W's for even attempting to adapt David Mitchell's brilliant book for the screen.
