"Cloud Atlas", the lush, glorious, stunning cinematic spectacle from Tom Tykwer ("Run Lola Run") and Andy and Lana Wachowski (The "Matrix" trilogy) opens in AMC Theatres this weekend -- purchase your tickets HERE.
Based on the David Mitchell novel by the same name, "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.
I've had the opportunity to see "Cloud Atlas" and honestly found it to be one of the most entertaining, wildly ambitious, moving and glorious films I have seen this year, perhaps ever.
I cannot wait to make my way back into the theatre this weekend to have another look at it myself and introduce a friend to the imaginative world that the film creates. One thing I have found, however, is that distilling "Cloud Atlas" down to a two minute trailer is a bit of a challenge.
A new extended featurette helps to illuminate what audiences can expect to see when the lights go down. Take a look at the featurette below and our video interviews with Tom Hanks, Halle Berry and the cast of "Cloud Atlas" HERE.
