Trailer: Cloud Atlas


Note: this is technically a leaked version of the trailer, which isn’t “officially” available until 10AM Pacific, so we’re going to host this now and keep it up for as long as possible, then we’ll put up the official version when it arrives from Apple. At any rate, this is the debut trailer for the hotly-anticipated adaptation of Cloud Atlas from the Wachowskis, creators of The Matrix, in the event that you’ve forgotten. It’s nearly six minutes long, and it still doesn’t give too much of the plot away.

I have to say, I’m pretty blown away here. It looks like The Tree of Life, but actually able to hold my attention. I was interested in this movie before, but now that I’ve actually gotten to see some of the time-jumping plot for myself, I’m convinced this movie will either be a spectacular failure or a spectacular success, but probably nothing in between. Regardless, I do think we’re in for something pretty special here.
