This NerdBastard wasn’t thrilled about watching a SIX MINUTE trailer of Cloud Atlas this morning, but when the boss cracks the whip you either watch it, or tell him “Thank you sir, can I have another.” So I finished my TPS Report and sat down to watch this monstrous sized trailer.

Son of a bitch . . .

That damn Tom Hanks seems to have done it again. He’s visually the equivalent of the Morgan Freeman Voice over; warm, comforting, and pretty soon this NerdBastard was sucked in and hooked.

One warning though, the trailer is so long that the advertising in the embedded video will kick in at one point, don’t worry it’s only a 15 second break, although it is annoying as hell.

The movie is described as:

An exploration of how the actions of individual lives impact one another in the past, present and future, as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero, and an act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution.

What did you think about the trailer? Everything I’d heard about Cloud Atlas was how huge and convoluted the book was and how could anyone let alone even the Wachowskis brothers bring it to the big screen and do it justice.

The good news is that the film hits theater screens on October 21st, 2012 so we don’t have long to wait. The movie stars Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugo Weaving, Jim Sturgess, Susan Sarandon, Hugh Grant, Ben Whishaw, Keith David, Jim Broadbent, James D’Arcy, Doona Bae.
