Cloud Atlas blu-ray/DVD release date and specs announced!

Feb. 22, 2013by: Paul Shirey

For those that missed the Wachowski's/Tom Tykwer's CLOUD ATLAS, starring Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugh Grant, Jim Broadbent, Hugo Weaving, Keith David, Ben Whishaw, James D'Arcy, Susan Sarandon, and Xun Zhou, your opportunity to finally see it is on the horizon. Warner Home Entertainment will release the film on Blu-ray/DVD/digital download on May 14, 2013.

The film, lauded as a visionary spectacle, received a lukewarm box office, likely due to its complex nature and almost three-hour running time, but seems primed to settle nicely into cult movie status. I am one of the few (many?) that missed it in theaters, but am very excited to finally see it. Every so often we miss a film we really wanted to see, but the timing just didn't work out. If the film is as "visionary" as they say, then I hope it finds a big audience on video. It sure worked out okay for DREDD 3D.

Here's the synopsis:

From acclaimed filmmakers Lana Wachowski, Tom Tykwer, and Andy Wachowski, the powerful and inspiring epic drama Cloud Atlas 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.

Here's the specs:

DVD Languages: English, Latin Spanish, Canadian French BD Languages: English, Latin Spanish, Canadian French DVD Subtitles: English SDH, Latin Spanish, Parisian French BD Subtitles: English SDH, Latin Spanish, Parisian French

Running Time: 172 minutes

Rating: R by the MPAA for violence, language, sexuality/nudity and some drug use DLBY/SURR DLBY/DGTL [CC]

Here's the Features:

A Film Like No Other

Everything is Connected

The Impossible Adaptation

The Essence of Acting

Spaceships, Slaves and Sextets

The Bold Science Fiction of Cloud Atlas

Eternal Recurrence: Love, Life, and Longing in Cloud Atlas

CLOUD ATLAS arrives on Blu-ray/DVD/Digital download on May 14, 2013.

I'm going to be honest, Cloud Atlas was the best movie of 2012, in my opinion. Sure, its not everyone's cup of tea, but you cannot deny the major cinematic accomplishment that this movie is.

FINALLY!!!

i've been waiting so long for this news! i saw Cloud Atlas 3 times in the theater and just finished reading the novel (which was also great). i'd have loved to see a directors commentary on this. and, yes, this will definitely be a cult film.

CULT STATUS FOR SURE

This has to be a cult film, it was very touching, moving, daring, and unlike anything you'll ever see. Its amazing that the actors played like 6 roles. Even down to sarandon playing a fuckin dude. Like At the end of the credits they show you the actors names and all the roles they played, your like wait that was so and so. I hope this fines a home on DVD/BLU-RAY because it deserves it. And no worries about the 3hr runtime. it goes by so quick well for me if your bored with it, it'll surly go
