Review: Cloud Atlas

PLOT: Several characters' fates intertwine throughout five centuries. REVIEW: CLOUD ATLAS is a true journey of a movie; an ambitious, soaring cinematic experience that will delight, confound, frustrate, thrill and enthrall those who are willing to travel along with it. If movies are supposed to take us out of our own lives and transport us to places new and unfamiliar, CLOUD...

Review: Cloud Atlas

PLOT: A multi-narrative epic, following the evolution of a group of souls throughout hundreds of years- from the adventures of a 19th century slave trader, to two dueling composers in pre-WW2 Britain, to a journalist fighting a corrupt corporation in the 1970's, to a synthetic human in 24th century Seoul, to a post-apocalyptic tribesman who battles to protect his family....

A plea from a Schmoe: seeing Cloud Atlas is the most important thing you can do for the future of cinema

The future of cinema needs you, and CLOUD ATLAS could very possibly be the key. Now that's a bold statement to make, I know.  But I have reason to say it, reason I hope to share with you now. Every once in a while, a very particular kind of chioce becomes possible in our lives.  It's the sort of choice that ripples out, like a Butterfly Effect, and changes our future path in...

Poster round-up: Tattoed Susan Sarandon, horror baseball, Django, evil Santa Claus, and more!

Got a smattering of movie posters for you today, most of them variations of some form, which can be pretty cool.  Oftentimes the variants are better than the original, because they can "stretch their wings" in the creativity department as they aren't the tip of the marketing spear.  These are a very unique blend, ranging from some lesser-known pics to bigger ones.  Scroll down...

Still need to be sold on Cloud Atlas? Then check out this extensive thirteen minute featurette!

You should see CLOUD ATLAS this weekend for the following reasons: 1) Simply supporting this sort of bold large-budget bravery from Hollywood is important.  That way we can see more of the sorts of movies we're always saying that we want to see. 2) You'll see choices and discoveries made by both the actors and adapters/directors that will alternately surprise and excite and...

Tom Hanks has high praise for Cloud Atlas, plus a new featurette

The Wachowski/Tykwer film CLOUD ATLAS is looking like a very unique movie experience. While it is not odd for the star of a film to praise his own project, Tom Hanks recently did so while dissing some older projects. At a recent gala where he received an honor from the Eli Wiesel's Foundation for Humanity, Hanks admitted that he has watched CLOUD ATLAS three times so far. He also...

Spoiler-filled sneak peek from Cloud Atlas with Tom Hanks and Halle Berry

CLOUD ATLAS, the upcoming film from the Waschowski's and Tom Tykwer, has had some rather out-of-the-box marketing from the get go and this new sneak peek fits that bill just the same.  Since I haven't seen the film yet, I can't say if this is a direct clip from the movie or an intricately cut vinette, but it's compelling-and spoilery-nonetheless.  The sneak peek definitely contains some key...

These seven banners for Cloud Atlas showcase several of its actors in some of their more drastic transformations

If you've ever wanted to see Hugo Weaving as a woman, or Jim Sturgess and Hugh Grant as though they were Korean, then this is your lucky day.  There's not much to say about CLOUD ATLAS at this point that hasn't already been said - it's currently sitting at #3 on this site's list of top five most anticipated films, advance reviews (including one by our own Chris Bumbray ) confirming...

New trailer for the Wachowski's/Tykwer's Cloud Atlas with Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, and Hugo Weaving

A new trailer for the Wachowski's/Tom Tykwer's CLOUD ATLAS has arrived, featuring a slimmed down running time, but with plenty of new footage to make it worthwhile.  The original, epic trailer was almost a short film (and a pretty amazing one at that), but this more of the standard style, which isn't a bad thing.  If anything, it's just a tighter version of what we saw before, so the themes...

The Wachowskis discuss how Cloud Atlas will redefine the idea of movies for the 21st century

Love it or hate it, THE MATRIX changed movies when it was released. The idea of bullet time became so overused in movies that it devolved into a parody of itself. The Wachowskis have not made a film since the first MATRIX that has lived up to that film's potential. As much as I enjoyed SPEED RACER, it was nothing to write home about. So hearing about CLOUD ATLAS didn't do much for me....
