Seven new poster banners for the epic adaptation of David Mitchell’s sprawling novel Cloud Atlas have gone online. The film comes from writers/directors Lana and Andy Wachowski and Tom Tykwer and features a large ensemble cast of actors who play multiple roles across different time periods and settings. These banners help to delineate some of the storylines, as they appear to be highlight the separate time periods. We learned yesterday that the film will be getting an IMAX release, which is good news since the pic looks to be absolutely epic in scope. You can read Matt’s positive review right here.
Hit the jump to check out the banners along with two new TV spots. The film stars Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugh Grant, Jim Broadbent, Hugo Weaving, Jim Sturgess, Doona Bae, Ben Whishaw, James D’Arcy, Xun Zhou, Keith David, and David Gyasi. Cloud Atlas opens on October 26th.
Here’s the official synopsis for Cloud Atlas:
“Cloud Atlas” explores how the actions and consequences of individual lives impact one another throughout the past, the present and the future. Action, mystery and romance weave dramatically through the story as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero and a single act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution in the distant future.
