1st official look at Hanks and Berry in the Wachowskis' sci-fi epic

We finally have an official first look at the Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer's Cloud Atlas. It's an adaptation of the book of the same name and stars Oscar winners Tom Hanks, Halle Berry and Jim Broadbent. Check out these photos of the three stars in action.

For the most part, Cloud Atlas has been kept under lock and key. We've seen a few paparazzi photos here and there, but nothing substantial. It was hard to figure out who was doing what, because most of the ensemble cast play multiple characters in different stories.

The official synopsis describes it as:

[It is] an epic story of humankind in which the actions and consequences of our lives impact one another throughout the past, present and future as one soul is shaped from a murderer into a savior and a single act of kindness ripples out for centuries to inspire a revolution."

In the above photo, we see Hanks and Berry featured in "a sci-fi story of a man who meets an emissary from an advanced civilization." There's also an image of Broadbent and Ben Whishaw both looking stressed and confused. We wonder what that's about?

Cloud Atlas opens in theaters Oct. 26.

What do you think of the first photos from the film?
