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.
The Wachowski siblings, Andy and Lana, are back in a big way with the impending arrival of their epic new film Cloud Atlas. But the pair have another project up their sleeves—and it finds them working with Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski.
Although The Matrix was a game-changing instant sci-fi classic when it came out in 1999, its two sequels—2003's The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions—failed to inspire fans in the same way. And one of the directors thinks she knows why.
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.
Their star may have dimmed a bit the past decade, but don't let a relatively quiet few years fool you—the Wachowskis are still hit makers. To that end, they're gearing up for a new sci-fi trilogy that they hope will recapture the magic of their blockbuster Matrix trilogy, and they've just found their leading couple.
The filmmakers behind the Matrix trilogy and the upcoming Cloud Atlas clearly went to the same school of secrecy as J.J. Abrams, as they've been keeping the story of their latest sci-fi saga, Jupiter Ascending, under lock and key. Until now.
