Cloud Atlas is the exciting upcoming scifi-adventure film with a diverse cast including Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Susan Sarandon, and Hugh Grant! The film is based on the 2004 novel by British author David Mitchell and has been the recipient of many awards including the “Nebula Award” and the “Booker Prize.”  The book features six interwoven stories that span through the 19th century South Pacific to a post-apocalyptic Hawaii.

This year’s film adaptation was written and directed by Matrix Trilogy directors Lana and Andy Wachowski and Tom Tykwer. The film was created with a budget of almost $100 million–making it the most expensive independent film of all time! This film, which will also be featured in IMAX theaters, promises to be visually arresting with its rich storytelling. It received a warm reception at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival and critics have described it as “wonderfully epic.”  You can see the film in a theater near you next week on October 26th!
