“Cloud Atlas” wowed audiences with its first preview, an extra long trailer that took its time introducing the six, interconnected stories. Now a new theatrical trailer boils that down and focuses on the theme that will run throughout the movie.
The topic was partially covered in the recent New Yorker profile on the Wachowskis (which is definitely worth a read). As you’ve probably heard, the actors in “Cloud Atlas” will play different characters throughout the separate stories, each having some tenuous, and maybe spiritual, connection to the rest of the film.
The whole thing looks stunning, so you should definitely take a look at the full theatrical trailer after the jump!

Starring Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jim Broadbent, Hugo Weaving, Jim Sturgess, Doona Bae, Ben Whishaw, James D’Arcy, Xun Zhou, Keith David, David Gyasi, Susan Sarandon and Hugh Grant, the film 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.
“Cloud Atlas” opens on October 26.
