New Cloud Atlas trailer!

I'm surprised people aren't showing much interest in this movie since many people keep complaining about how comics and video games dominate genre movies these days.

This looks really good. I haven't read the book, so I don't know how close it is to the source material, but coming in knowing nothing about it, the trailers have made me very interested.

I've read the book twice (yes it's that good) and I recognize most of the scenes. There is some new stuff especially Sonmi451 escape from Nea So Copros (Korea) which is different and the original trailer implies that they may have changed the ending for her story.

I'm absolutely interested in this film. The trailers - especially the five-minute one, which I'd go so far as to say is a short-film in and of itself - have been fantastic. I'm going to wait to read the book afterward, though, because I'd like the film experience to be as pure as possible.

ETA: Ditto for Life of Pi

Trailer looks kind of "Sucker Punch"-ish to me (neat visuals but maybe too slick and removed) and I haven't seen enough story hook to sell me yet (as I haven't read the book).

This could just be coincidental design, but the building in the shot below sure looks a lot like a slightly modified Taipei 101, so I wonder if that possibly means they relocated that part of the story from Korea to Taiwan. I doubt it, but it's food for thought.

Anyway, the movie looks visually stunning, the premise is interesting, and the cast is magnificent, so I'm really looking forward to this. Hopefully the dialogue and story can live up to everything else.

I haven't read the book, but from what I've read about the story online this doesn't seem like the kind of story that can really be communicated through trailers.
Did you watch the 6 minute trailer? That one does give a little bit better feel for the movie.
I found this description of the book on Barnes and Nobles website:
Quote:

"Cloud Atlas begins in 1850 with Adam Ewing, an American notary voyaging from the Chatham Isles to his home in California. Along the way, Ewing is befriended by a physician, Dr. Goose, who begins to treat him for a rare species of brain parasite. Abruptly, the action jumps to Belgium in 1931, where Robert Frobisher, a disinherited bisexual composer, inveigles his way into the household of an infirm maestro who has a beguiling wife and a nubile daughter. From there we jump to the West Coast in the 1970s and a troubled reporter named Luisa Rey, who stumbles upon a web of corporate greed and murder that threatens to claim her life. And onward, to an inglorious present-day England; to a Korean superstate of the near future where neocapitalism has run amok; and, finally, to a postapocalyptic Iron Age Hawaii in the last days of history." But the story doesn't even end there. The narrative then boomerangs back through centuries and space, returning by the same route, in reverse, to its starting point. Along the way, Mitchell reveals how his disparate characters connect, how their fates intertwine, and how their souls drift across time like clouds across the sky.

It's possible but the actress playing Sonmi is still Korean. What's funny but I saw it on the new trailer (and it's confirmed by wikipedia) that Doona Bae is also playing Tilda Ewing, the wife of the Adam Ewing.

It seems the Wachowski really want to have fun with this movie

I've become more excited about this since the trailers have hit.

How excited am I about this movie? I already bought the book. :D

"From the creators of The Matrix." Not sure if that's good or bad. :rommie:

The trailer certainly does look appealing, though. I'll have to track down the longer one.

Interesting article about the Wachowskis and their process in making the film.

^^ Thanks for the link. This does look really good. I hope the movie lives up to what that trailer promises.

And here's a new 30 second TV spot for it, which I think uses only footage that was already seen in the other trailers:
