Reviews for Cloud Atlas, the ambitious new project from The Wachowski Siblings and Tom Tykwer, have been a tad mixed. Some have hailed the film as a “grand spectacle” and “tremendous,” while others have called it a “giant folly” and a “disaster.” Our own David Baldwin referred to it as “ambitious” and “beautiful,” “but an absolute pain to analyze and admire” in his review.
With the release of the film only about a month away, Warner Bros. has stepped up the marketing for the film. Today, thanks to The Film Stage, we have seven new banners and two new TV spots that do a great job of showing off the film’s epicness, as well as giving us a good look at the multiple time periods the film covers.
This new material also comes with the news that the film will be receiving an IMAX release, featuring a digitally-remastered version of the film.
I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again. I can’t wait to see how this turns out. I have a thing for epics, and this looks like the most epic film to hit screens since Lord of the Rings. With this and The Hobbit coming up, among other amazing-looking projects, it looks like the remainder of 2012 is shaping up to be a great time at the cinema.
Cloud Atlas finally hits theaters on October 26th.
