Moody Poster For Cloud Atlas, From The Wachowskis And Tom Tykwer

The managers of Andy and Lana Wachowski are Circle of Confusion, and on that company’s site are several promo pages for upcoming films. Amongst these is Cloud Atlas, the next Wachowski movie, co-directed with Tom Tykwer.

And on that page, this poster.

The film is an adaptation of the novel by David Mitchell. It mixes several stories together, with the same cast playing different roles in each. Here’s the blurb:

A reluctant voyager crossing the Pacific in 1850; a disinherited composer blagging a precarious livelihood in between-the-wars Belgium; a high-minded journalist in Governor Reagan’s California; a vanity publisher fleeing his gangland creditors; a genetically modified “dinery server” on death-row; and Zachry, a young Pacific Islander witnessing the nightfall of science and civilisation – the narrators of Cloud Atlas hear each other’s echoes down the corridor of history, and their destinies are changed in ways great and small.

The film will be released in the US this October 16th. Expect an altogether different, slicker poster by then. And a trailer that probably won’t do the complex structure of the novel, and presumably film, any justice.

Thanks to Little Bleeder Harrison for the tip.
