I'm not a monster nor a robot, so obviously Looper is at the top of my must-watch list for fall, but I cannot deny that Cloud Atlas shares that space at the top. Every piece of material I see looks marvelously original and heartbreakingly beautiful. The novel by David Mitchell is one of my absolute favorites - I've actually just begun to re-read it in time for the film's premiere date of October 26, and I'm so happy to be back in that world.
The new trailer, I think, shows nothing new from the extended trailer released in July, but it's still a captivating, enigmatic watch. Go here to see a bunch of breathtaking pictures from the film and to read my quick, spoiler-free explanation of the book and what you're seeing here. And seriously - take the time to read the book. You have just under a month before the film is released. It's a transformative read, unlike anything I've ever read and something that has stayed with me for many years.
