We've been hearing about the epic scale and cast of the Wachowskis' historical sci-fi drama Cloud Atlas for more than a year now, and we're finally starting to see what the flick will look like. New concept art for the film has just hit the 'Net, giving us a peek at South Korea more than 100 years in the future.
Co-directed by the Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer (who directed, among other things, Run Lola Run and Perfume), Cloud Atlas is an adaptation of David Mitchell's acclaimed novel that tells six stories ranging from the Pacific Ocean of the 1850s to the city of Seoul in the 2100s. The enormous and star-studded cast includes the likes of Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugh Grant, Hugo Weaving and Susan Sarandon.
The only real image from the film that's been released so far is this one of Korean star Bae Doona. Doona stars in the futuristic sections of the flick as Sonmi-451, a "genetically-engineered fabricant (clone)."
The rest is just concept art, but it does happen to be extremely intriguing concept art. The first image presents a ship sailing on what looks like a sea of clouds with a city looming in the background, while the second gives us a grim view of the future in Seoul, South Korea, in 2144.
It's not much, but Cloud Atlas keeps moving closer to its projected October 2012 release date. It's the Wachowskis, so we doubt all will be clear by then, but at least our wait for the flick has finally become shorter than a year.
