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.
