New Cloud Atlas Character Profiles Span The Ages

(Written for Lost In The Multiplex)

As well as the release of the first trailer for writer/directors Lana Wachowski, Andy Wachowski, and Tom Tykwer’s upcoming adaptation of David Mitchell’s Cloud Atlas this month, the film’s official website have now released a number of images of the film’s cast, showing that some of the film’s actors take on multiple roles and characters across the centuries that the film spans.

The incredible cast for this film includes 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, most of whom can be seen in the new images which include Grant as a futuristic tribesman, Hanks as a gangster, and Berry as a white woman. What a combination, right?

Based on Mitchell’s novel that was originally published in 2004, the story explores how the actions and consequences of individual lives impact one another throughout the past, the present and the future, 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.

A mix of action, mystery and romance, Cloud Atlas is set to be released on 26th October, and I for one cannot wait.
