New Cloud Atlas trailer is half as long, twice as thought provoking?

Towing the line between thought provoking art and pretentious austerity is CLOUD ATLAS, the highly ambitious Tykwer/Wachowski adaptation of David Mitchell's classic. In July we laid eyes on a 5 minute whopper of a trailer, and today, the runtime has been halved in the newest look courtesy of iTunes. Cop a peek underneath!

With demanding work from Tom Hanks, Halle Berry (below), Jim Broadbent, Susan Sarandon, Hugo Weaving, Ben Winshaw, Jim Sturgess and Keith David - CLOUD ATLAS weaves:

Six nested stories that take us from the remote South Pacific in the nineteenth century to a distant, post-apocalyptic future. Each tale is revealed to be a story that is read (or watched) by the main character in the next. All stories but the last one get interrupted at some moment, and after the sixth story concludes at the center of the book, the novel "goes back" in time, "closing" each story as the book progresses in terms of pages but regresses in terms of the historical period in which the action takes place. Eventually, readers end where they started, with Adam Ewing in the Pacific Ocean, circa 1850.

CLOUD ATLAS passes through October 26th.
