This weekend the epic fantasy-adventure that crosses the boundaries of space and time "Cloud Atlas" opens in AMC Theatres everywhere.

Truly, this stunning tale of grand scale love, loss and the power of the human spirit is an achievement that you will want to see for yourself - make sure to purchase your tickets HERE.

Adapted for the screen by Tom Tykwer ("Run Lola Run") and Andy and Lana Wachowski (The "Matrix" trilogy) from 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.

The film utilizes its talented cast to play multiple characters. But those characters are really the reincarnations of the same soul. In this way it explores the idea of the soul's journey - the patterns we repeat, the mistakes we make and the ever present possibility of getting it right.

It illustrates those ideas through six interweaving stories, each as entertaining as the next. There is a sci-fi adventure, a grand romance, a mystery and a hilarious situational comedy in the mix. The film is genuinely a pleasure to watch.

We had the opportunity to sit down with Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugo Weaving, Susan Sarandon, Jim Sturgess, Doona Bae, Ben Whishaw and James D’Arcy recently to talk about what audiences can expect from this ambitious, exiting, unique and surprisingly funny and joyful film.

    This reply if for CMO175: Wow... I had to comment on your posting. The fact that you believe Batman vs. Superman would beat Captain America 3 strikes me as uninformed. Zack Snyder is a visual master... but his stories and pacing and color palate are truly lacking in the development process. Superman simply had no soul... the man and the movie. And the silly destruction of the city and the landscape IS out of character with what Superman is. How many people died as Superman himself crashed through buildings and caused explosions throughout the movie? Superman would NEVER allow that to happen, but Zack Snyder and his writer would... and did. And it was a boring, stupid mess. And he WILL bring that soulless idiocy to Batman vs. Superman. Captain America, on the other hand? Winter Soldier is the most exciting super hero movie since The Dark Knight. And I, a 55 year old long time comic book universe fan, WILL be in line for Captain America 3! I will have to be convinced -- a LOT -- to turn around and spend my money, and time, in a Zack Snyder Batman vs. Superman. Zack Snyder stole a bit of my soul -- and I hate him for it -- when he introduced zombies that can run down a car. If zombies existed, in a Zack Snyder universe, and they move FASTER than any human... then he has introduced a horror universe in which man has NO hope of survival! Mankind cannot survive in this universe where vicious zombies have the speed to overwhelm any human survival situation... and that vision kills the suspense in a zombie movie. Where is the hope? That does not exist in a Zack Snyder movie. That man is Sucker Punching all of us. I'm not taking it any more. There are too many other fan friendly directors of fantasy movies for me to follow. I only hope that Disney/Marvel will hire the same brother director team to direct Captain America 3. That will be a smart move, indeed. RLJ
