First look at Cloud Atlas stills and poster

Take a look at the breath-taking Cloud Atlas stills and poster here. Featuring Tom Hanks & Jim Broadbent they're a taste of what to expect.

After seeing the beautiful extended trailer we’ve been given our first look at some Cloud Atlas stills.

Last week we gave you a sneak peek at the five-minute trailer of Cloud Atlas. If you still haven’t seen it, you can watch it here. This week official film stills have been released. Capturing the beautiful shots present in the trailer the stills are a glimpse of what’s in store when the film is released in 2013.

Adapted from David Mitchell‘s hugely successful novel of the same name, the film explores how the actions of one generation can affect countless others. Amongst those appearing in the film are Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jim Broadbent, Susan Sarandon, Jim Sturgess, Hugo Weaving and Hugh Grant. What a cast!

Mixing drama, action and romance the story follows various lives in various places and times to tell an emotional tale. The Wachowskis are on directorial duty here alongside Tom Tykwer and look to have created a something that could be as influential as their 1999 hit The Matrix.
