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 are consistent and compelling.

Check it out:

The Wachowski's are touting CLOUD ATLAS as a return to the, "spectacle of the sixties and seventies, the touchstone movies."  It looks amazing, no doubt, and has a great cast to boot, but I'm still a little nervous that it could crumble under it's own weight.  I'm cautiously optimistic, though. 

Here's the synopsis:

“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.

CLOUD ATLAS is set to debut on October 26, 2012.
