Glorious 6 Minute Trailer For Cloud Atlas Adaptation Arrives
Cloud Atlas is one of my favorite books ever, and I was initially very wary of this adaptation (you can read all about my reservations HERE), but this doesn't look half sucky. In fact, it looks pretty damn great. I still wish they had cast someone other thank Tom Hanks and Halle Berry, but they don't stink up the joint. The trailer feels a tad melodramatic, but it's also visually stunning. It does a great job of conveying the scope of the book, and balances the multiple storylines nicely.
You can check out the extended trailer, plus a 2 1/2 minute commentary from the trio of directors, via Apple. What do you guys think? Anyone else love the book as much as I do? Has this trailer given you hope that Tom Tykwer and The Wachowskis have pulled this off?
