Under the direction of Tom Tykwer, Andy and Lana Wachowski, and starring Tom Hanks, Hugh Grant and Halle Berry, CLOUD ATLAS spans 500 years weaving six interlocking narratives across a variety of locations and genres, from Melvillean high-seas drama to California film noir and dystopian fantasy. All six stories grippingly weave the novel's themes into focus: the ease with which one group enslaves another, the constant rewriting of the past by those who control the present, and the duality of good and evil that exists within mankind. Cloud Atlas was released theatrically on September 8th 2012 and grossed in Russia over $17 million.
