VIDEO: Latest Trailer for the Wachowskis' "Cloud Atlas"

Controversial new preview of latest feature from the makers of The Matrix and live action Speed Racer

The makers of the Matrix and the live action Speed Racer, the Wachowski siblings, along with Run Lola Run's Tom Tykwer, are coming back this fall with an ambitious adaptation of David Mitchell's multiple time era, multiple culture spanning novel Cloud Atlas.

 

The movie, which features Tom Hanks, Hugo Weaving, Hugh Grant, Susan Sarandon, Halle Berry, Jim Sturgess, David Keith,  Bae Doona and Jim Broadbent opens in the US on October 26th.

 

 

 

Remarkable for a work whose creators have looked internationally for their inspirations, the latest trailer is being second guessed for its racial depictions.  Race Bending has a discussion of the subject here.
