Check Out This Cloud Atlas Extended Featurette

Although critics have drawn their own opinions on the quality of the film itself, none of them are doubting that there's something bold, different, and spectacular about Cloud Atlas, the latest blockbuster from Tom Tykwer and Lana and Andy Wachowski (The Matrix, Speed Racer).

Although critics have drawn their own opinions on the quality of the film itself, none of them are doubting that there’s something bold, different, and spectacular about Cloud Atlas, the latest blockbuster from Tom Tykwer and Lana and Andy Wachowski (The Matrix, Speed Racer).

So far, Cloud Atlas has been pushed as a relentless epic. From the looks of the trailer, it appears as though no other word might be fit to describe a movie that has been called a “Russian doll of nestling, uninterrupted narratives” by one of its directors.

The picture seems made up of several different worlds, time periods, and stories that don’t seem like they might connect naturally at all. For anybody who hasn’t read the book (this writer included), the whole thing seems absolutely bonkers.

Which is good, then, as an extended 15-minute featurette (you can see it below) has just been unveiled to help guide people out of their homes and into the theatre when Cloud Atlas opens on 26th October. Leave the house? In this day and age? Wishful thinking, Wachowskis.

The featurette stars Tom Hanks and Halle Berry, among others, who discuss some of the confusion and shock they felt working on a movie that appears to be made of so many vastly different pieces (but, as everyone on set insists, Cloud Atlas is most definitely “one big story”).

What are your thoughts on this thing? Are you going to go see it this weekend? Let us know in the comments section below.
