A typical trailer cannot even begin to describe the joys of 'Cloud Atlas.' One of the year's best and most ambitious films, it's the perfect antidote to what's been a pretty disappointing year for mainstream cinema, proof that yes, film is an art form that hasn't hit a ceiling. We've only just begun to realize what we can do with this medium (read our own Matt Singer's very positive review here). By its very nature, its hard to have simple conversations about 'Cloud Atlas,' which makes the below behind the scenes featurette feel significantly smarter than your average promotional video.

October is upon us, which means we've got some delightfully scary movies hitting theaters, but it also means we're approaching awards season. So there's some serious contenders getting releases as well, like Ben Affleck's 'Argo' and the Wachowski's 'Cloud Atlas.' Scary or serious this month? Why not both? Treat yourselves!
It's interesting to see how Warner Bros. is marketing their upcoming release, 'Cloud Atlas,' since it's obvious that it isn't an easy sell. A multi-layered, time-jumping, 164-minute epic that combines elements of several different genres, has a big cast filled with recognizable name, but it's not even close to a sure thing at the box office. Now, with the release of a couple of new TV spots for the film, we can see two different ways WB is going about pitching this unique picture. Check out both ads after the jump.
As if we haven't seen all there is to see of 'Cloud Atlas' -- what with all the trailers, TV spots, movie stills and posters -- now there's some extra goodies that reveal even more images from The Wachowskis latest big project.
After it's premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, 'Cloud Atlas' left audiences clearly divided between the people who loved it and the people who hated it (and the handful of people who found themselves somewhere in the middle). However, those who loved it really loved it, as evidenced by the praise showered upon the film in the film's new TV spot.
For many people, 'Cloud Atlas' is going to be a tough sell: ambitious, oddball New Age-y science fiction is the not the kind of thing that brings in the box office receipts. However, this is an ambitious, oddball New Age-y science fiction movie that also features a stunning ensemble of incredible actors. Naturally, the new poster chooses to emphasize that fact.
'Cloud Atlas,' the latest and much-anticipated movie from the Wachowski siblings, recently premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, and much like those two trailers we got a look at, some are completely blown away by the fantastical imagery and others are utterly locked in a state of confusion.
A new 'Cloud Atlas' trailer is here and it's significantly shorter than the previous trailer (which isn't hard to do considering the last trailer was over 6-minutes long. But while this 'Cloud Atlas' trailer is shorter, it's not any less impressive.
'Cloud Atlas' unleashed an amazingly impressive six-minute long trailer today and while the visuals were nothing short of sumptuous (that's a word, right?), we also couldn't help but wonder, what's that song in the background? Well, if you were like us and wondering, we have the answer for you...
We told you. Yesterday, when we shared the first official images from ‘Cloud Atlas,’ we predicted that a trailer likely would be right behind. Lo and behold, here it is: A six-minute 'Cloud Atlas' trailer highlighting the visually inventive collaboration between Tom Tykwer and the Wachowskis.
