Tom Hanks and Halle Berry Star in Cloud Atlas

Posted on July 31, 2012

The highly-anticipated trailer for Cloud Atlas has been released and it's pretty amazing. Andy and Lana Wachowski, producers of The Matrix trilogy, adapted David Mitchell's award-winning novel about the interconnectedness of the universe. The film stars Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugh Grant, Jim Sturgess, Ben Whishaw, Jim Broadbent and Hugo Weaving. The film tells six separate stories that take place in different times and places, from 1850 New Zealand to a post-apocalyptic Hawaii in the distant future. The actors play multiple roles. It's a complex story that will be tricky to translate into film. It certainly has a beautiful and dreamy trailer. Take a look:
