After watching the first extended trailer for Cloud Atlas, I was compelled to read the book it’s based on. After reading that book I didn’t think I could possibly be more excited for this movie. Well, I am happy to say I was wrong. The second trailer (released just a little bit ago) makes the movie look even better. Just check it out.
Sure, it’s not as long as the first trailer, but if anything, it’s more compelling. Now that I can recognize various scenes out of the book, I’m amazed at how good this adaptation is looking. While it’s obviously not smart to judge a film by it’s trailers alone (too many good trailers have been made for terrible movies), I can’t help but think this is going to be a success. I’m just keeping my fingers crossed that the movie itself looks as gorgeous and compentent as these trailers have been.
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.
What do you guys think of the trailer?
