I honestly haven’t been sure what to think about Cloud Atlas so far. I love the Wachowskis and their particular brand of filmmaking, and I follow their projects pretty closely. Yet Cloud Atlas seemed such an obscure and complicated story, that I had no idea how they were going to pull it off.
The book the film is based on is broken up into six separate stories that somehow intertwine and share a common thread. It’s no wonder that the book has been considered ‘unfilmable’. I’m curious to see how they are going to pull it off, but this trailer has me very confident all of a sudden.
First of all it’s just gorgeous looking, and sets up enough of the story to give people who haven’t read the book an idea of what’s happening. I’m not going to lie, I was sucked into this trailer almost immediately and I just didn’t want it to end. October 26th just can’t get here soon enough.
So what did you guys think of it?
