Check Out Artist Paul Shipper's Stellar 'Cloud Atlas' Poster Trilogy
"We cross and re-cross our old paths like figure-skaters." Whoa! Even a year later, I am still preaching high praise for Tom Tykwer & The Wachowskis' Cloud Atlas, which I've watched multiple times on Blu-Ray since it was released. The film is slowly earning a cult following and the best part of that kind of following means that we're starting to see some incredible artwork for the film. Earlier this summer I bought a Cloud Atlas print by Alex Tuis from Bottleneck, one of the first prints I've ever seen for this movie. Now one of our favorite artists, Paul Shipper, has created a nice trilogy of posters for an upcoming Hero Complex Gallery show. Beyond the Marquee posted the gorgeous prints online for our viewing pleasure. See all three below.
"The Pacific Journal of Adam Ewing"
"Half-Lives: The First Luisa Rey Mystery"
"The Revelation of Sonmi-451"
Thanks again to Beyond the Marquee for debuting these three posters. They'll be on display as part of the "Young Guns of Print" art exhibit opening at the Hero Complex Gallery on this Friday, September 20th. The upcoming exhibit is an "art show celebrating the rising stars of print." Explaining his inspiration and involvement, Paul Shipper (website here) comments: "Cloud Atlas is most definitely a film that deserves celebrating and this is one way I can do that. I can only hope that for those who have not seen the film yet that maybe this artwork would get them interested…" I agree. His posters show three of the six storylines in the movie. I'm not sure if we'll eventually see the other three, but it would be cool to have the full collection.

Wholly unappreciated film

I loved the movie, definitely one of the best from last year. I like the posters, but I think this style is getting old, I'm tired of having every single character fighting for space in the poster, I prefer the simple ones

I still can't understand why the movie studios do not try to get their own movie posters in good shape. if i would see these three hanging around in my local movie theater, it would definetely be a positve influence for me.

Sorry but you're wrong, each poster shows 2 storylines so you have all 6 storylines in the 3 posters 😉

This art is absolutely gorgeous, and I loved all three pieces saluting this completely underappreciated film. The only criticism I have is that Meronym's name is misspelled (as "MERONYN") as the record label (which is genius if that's a true detail, and one that I missed!).
