Cloud Atlas: The IMAX Experience

bigImage From acclaimed filmmakers Lana Wachowski, Tom Tykwer, and Andy Wachowski comes the powerful and inspiring epic CLOUD ATLAS, based on the best-selling novel by David Mitchell.

Drama, mystery, action and enduring love thread through a single story that unfolds in multiple timelines over the span of 500 years. Characters meet and reunite from one life to the next. Born and reborn.

As the consequences of their actions and choices impact one another through the past, the present and the distant future, one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero, and a single act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution.

Everything is connected.

Academy Award® winners Tom Hanks ("Philadelphia," "Forrest Gump") and Halle Berry ("Monster's Ball") lead a stellar international cast that also includes Oscar® winner Jim Broadbent ("Iris"), Hugo Weaving, Jim Sturgess, Doona Bae, Ben Whishaw, James D'Arcy, Xun Zhou, Keith David and David Gyasi, with Oscar® winner Susan Sarandon ("Dead Man Walking") and Hugh Grant. Each member of the ensemble appears in multiple roles as the story moves through time.

The film is written for the screen and directed by Lana Wachowski & Tom Tykwer & Andy Wachowski. The Wachowskis previously teamed as writers/directors of the groundbreaking "Matrix" trilogy; Tom Tykwer won an Independent Spirit Award and earned a BAFTA Award nomination as the director/writer of "Run Lola Run," and more recently directed the award-winning thriller "Perfume: The Story of a Murderer."

Based on the celebrated best-selling novel by David Mitchell, "Cloud Atlas" is produced by two-time Oscar® nominee Grant Hill ("The Thin Red Line," "The Tree of Life"), three-time BAFTA Award nominee Stefan Arndt ("The White Ribbon," "Goodbye Lenin!," "Run Lola Run"), Lana Wachowski, Tom Tykwer, and Andy Wachowski. Philip Lee, Uwe Schott and Wilson Qiu serve as executive producers, with co-producers Peter Lam, Tony Teo and Alexander van Dülmen, and Gigi Oeri as associate producer.

The creative filmmaking team includes directors of photography John Toll and Frank Griebe; production designers Uli Hanisch and Hugh Bateup; editor Alexander Berner; costume designers Kym Barrett and Pierre-Yves Gayraud; and visual effects supervisor Dan Glass.

The music is composed by Tom Tykwer, Johnny Klimek and Reinhold Heil.

Warner Bros. Pictures presents a Cloud Atlas Production/X-Filme Creative Pool and Anarchos Production, in association with A Company and ARD Degeto, "Cloud Atlas." The film will be distributed in North America, the UK, France, Spain, Australia and Japan by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
