The Silver Bullet ~ Cloud Atlas

Synopsis: 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.

Release Date: October 26, 2012

Thoughts: The latest endeavor from The Wachowski Siblings (The Matrix, Bound, Speed Racer) and Tom Tykwer (Run Lola Run) seems to cover all the bases of movie genres according to the nearly six-minute extended trailer you can view above. Halle Berry and Tom Hanks seem like unlikely stars of this epic but then again the creators are a strange crew themselves. Several of the scenes included here are pretty breathtaking examples of visual effects and advanced camera technology – get a load of Berry in a car careening off a bridge. The film is fully finished and waiting for release in October – it’s lengthy running time (164 minutes) and challenging narrative may turn off some but it might just be the rewarding experience it looks to be.
