CLOUD ATLAS (David Mitchell, 2004 novel) - extended trailer - Twyker and Wachowskis to direct.

Based on David Mitchell's 2004 novel, CLOUD ATLAS is an upcoming German-made English-language historical/science fiction film co-directed by Tom Tykwer (Perfume, The International) and The Wachowskis (The Matrix Trilogy). The 'unfilmable' narrative is a multi-character multi-timeline affair that's been described as "like no film you've ever seen".

The film's cast includes:

Tom Hanks
Hugh Grant
Halle Berry
Jim Broadbent
Hugo Weaving
Jim Sturgess
James D'Arcy
Ben Whishaw
Susan Sarandon
Keith David
David Gyasi
Zhou Xun
Doona Bae

Best shot of this Extended Trailer: Tom Hanks, back in pre-history carrying his daughter(?), running from the marauding horde. You know he'll try his best to protect his love. You know the gang will catch them.

Literally tears pouring down my face.

"Our lives are not our own; we are bound to others, past and present," I think the message is, "Enjoy the time you have TOGETHER," but I can't be sure there's ANY resolution to this complex story.

CLOUD ATLAS is scheduled to be released in October 2012.
