Known for their go-big-or-go-home attitude, the Wachowskis appear ready to deliver another sci-fi spectacle. The first trailer for Cloud Atlas, an amazingly epic-looking film featuring Tom Hanks, Halle Berry and Hugo Weaving (among many others), looks like quite an ambitious project. Cloud Atlas is based of a novel of the same name by David Mitchell and will attempt to tie several stories into a single narrative.
The overall story is hard to discern from the trailer with Tom Hanks philosophizing over random clips from different time periods, places or all of the above. But with a Oscar-lauded cast, things seem to be headed in the right direction.
Cloud Atlas is set for release Oct. 26. You can watch the full trailer below.
