    round the World in One Movie: Film Financing’s Global Future
    By NICHOLAS KULISH and MICHAEL CIEPLY
    Published: December 5, 2011

    POTSDAM, Germany — The German craftsmen on Stage 15 in the Babelsberg studio were hard at work on a recent afternoon building a dystopian Korean slum, the thud of a nail gun and a whiff of sawdust in the air. Next door, Andy and Lana Wachowski, the American-born team behind the “Matrix” movies, were filming black-clad storm troopers from an imagined future for their latest feature, “Cloud Atlas.”

    From its truly global parentage to its time-bending story told by three directors using two separate production crews, the movie is unabashedly strange. The narrative, which starts near New Zealand and circles the globe, is bewildering in its complexity, featuring characters in six eras who might share a soul migrating through time. And the project’s primary backers are from China, Korea and Singapore.

    But “Cloud Atlas,” in all its glorious confusion, also serves as a guidepost to the future of the film business. Increasingly, sophisticated filmmakers who once relied on American studios for backing are turning to a globe-straddling independent finance system for their most expensive projects.

    “Cloud Atlas,” with its $100 million budget and high-wattage cast, including the Academy Award winners Tom Hanks and Halle Berry, was an epic independent film too complicated, too expensive and perhaps too risky for any conventional studio to have backed.

    To move forward, the project broke free of national boundaries. The investors from Asia and beyond contributed roughly $35 million, without which the film could not have been made. German subsidies account for $18 million more. In the United States, “Cloud Atlas” will be distributed, probably next fall, by Warner Brothers, which has made only a modest investment to date.

    In many ways, the producers are drawing a blueprint for a new era of genuinely international filmmaking.

    “We were just looking for a way to get it done,” said Grant Hill, one of the “Cloud Atlas” producers, “but I think there’s the basis for a model there.” He called the final push for financing an “exotic mixture” of deals, adding, “What a studio would have had to pay would have made it impossible.”

    The change has been coming for several years. In 2010, the international box office was up 30 percent over five years, twice the growth in domestic sales. And foreign sales accounted for roughly 70 percent of total receipts, both for the industry at large and for some of the biggest American studio productions like “Avatar.”

    Meanwhile, the Oscar for best picture, for three consecutive years, has gone to films — “Slumdog Millionaire,” “The Hurt Locker” and “The King’s Speech” — that used globe-spanning financial networks to create stories aimed at global audiences. Movies like these will simply make a stop on American theater screens as they travel around the world.

    A peek at the back lot for “Cloud Atlas” testifies to the need for a budget that defies the term “indie.” Behind the yellow shipping containers that are part of the futuristic Korean set is a fine 19th-century sitting room with a rose-lined garden path outside the front door. The interior of an old tall ship shares the soundstage with the exterior of a space-age hovercraft and Styrofoam boulders.

    The performers, meanwhile, shift between jarringly different roles. “The biggest change for me as an actor is to have two different film units and two different film crews and to go between the two from one day to the next,” Ms. Berry said in a phone conversation.

    She described playing “a Jewish woman in the 1930s” for the third director, Tom Tykwer, then becoming “an old tribal woman” for the Wachowski siblings the next day, and losing track of fellow cast members amid the layers of makeup and costumes.

    “Some days I go into the trailer, I’ll be having a conversation — I won’t even know it’s with Hugh Grant until five minutes in,” Ms. Berry said.

    The gestation of “Cloud Atlas” is a winding tale of emerging markets and perseverance that breathed life into an unlikely project, which, if successful, will probably provoke more change in the business of filmmaking.

    In 2005, while on the London set of “V for Vendetta,” the actress Natalie Portman gave a copy of “Cloud Atlas” to Lana Wachowski (formerly Larry), who became intrigued with the novel’s six obliquely connected stories.

    A year later, Lana and her brother Andy surfaced with a screenplay. Mr. Tykwer, a friend of the Wachowskis — the directors declined interview requests — joined in writing the numerous drafts of the script, which were shared with the book’s author, David Mitchell.

    “After two years of hard work, we were still about 30 percent short” of the necessary money, Mr. Hill said. “At that point you go home unless you can come up with something new, not part of the traditional model.”

    Rather than giving up, the producers translated the screenplay into more than half a dozen Asian languages and found that the film’s treatment of reincarnation resonated with potential investors in the East.

    “The theme of the story is rebirth, and it comes straight from the basic ideal of Buddhism,” said Michelle Park, chief executive of the Bloomage Company, a Korean film distributor. Ms. Park describes her company’s investment as “unusually high” by Korean standards.

    Money came from the Singapore container ship magnate Tony Teo; the Hong Kong film distributor the Media Asia Group, which made what its chief executive, John Chong, called the company’s “largest ever investment in a Western production”; and Dreams of the Dragon, a Beijing film company that had not previously invested in a major film. One of its owners, Wilson Qiu, in an e-mail, cited his “fascination with the source material.”

    Others also claim pride of authorship. “From our perspective, ‘Cloud Atlas’ is a German film,” said Christine Berg, project manager for the German Federal Film Fund. Not only are the country’s subsidies substantial, but Mr. Tykwer, who achieved fame with his Berlin film, “Run Lola Run,” is in charge of the second crew.

    One advantage of having disparate financing, said Peter J. Dekom, a veteran entertainment lawyer, is that it gives filmmakers greater creative freedom. “The more investors you have, the less control you feel from any one investor,” he said.

    The idea of shooting on parallel tracks, with the Wachowskis directing one unit and Mr. Tykwer the other, grew from a realization that the stars were more likely to work for a steep discount if the shoot could be finished in half the time. Actors also play different roles in different time periods, keeping them busy and, on certain days, turning stars into extras.

    “It’s sort of like guerrilla filmmaking in a way,” Ms. Berry said. “Even though there seems like there’s a lot of money, it’s not opulent. All the money’s going into the screen.”

    Still, such an unusual project presents hurdles in capturing a mainstream audience.

    The Wachowskis brought in about $1.5 billion at the worldwide box office for Warner Brothers with the Matrix series. But their “Speed Racer,” also for Warner, was a high-budget flop in 2008. This time, Warner agreed to distribute the film in the United States but was not a large contributor to its production budget.

    “To have taken the whole movie, given the expense, would have been a very risky proposition for us,” said Warner’s top film executive, Jeff Robinov. Whether it was smart business to jump in only part way, Mr. Robinov said, “I can’t tell you until we’ve seen more.”

    The Wachowskis are notorious for their secrecy, but they showed six minutes of footage at the American Film Market in Santa Monica last month.

    “It looks phantasmagorical,” said Victor Loewy, a seasoned international film distributor who bid on the United Kingdom rights after watching the clip. “It’s so unlike anything I’ve seen in 40 years in this business.”

    Nicholas Kulish reported from Potsdam and Michael Cieply from Los Angeles.

    More Details About the Wachowski/Tykwer Film ‘Cloud Atlas,’ Which Could Become a New Model For Funding Ambitious Movies

    Posted on Tuesday, December 6th, 2011 by Russ Fischer

    From the very beginning, the Andy and Lana Wachowski & Tom Tykwer adaptation of the David Mitchell novel Cloud Atlas has sounded pretty crazy. There’s the simple fact that the book is built out of six stories, each of which follows a different set of characters and is based on a different genre of storytelling. (You’ll find a ’70s thriller, a post-apocalyptic story of rebuilding civilization, a parable about corporate-controlled society, and more.) Some of the characters are releated to others in different stories, and there’s the idea that one soul connects all the tales. That’s just the book!

    The film features a massive cast, including Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugo Weaving, Ben Whishaw, Susan Sarandon, Jim Broadbent, Hugh Grant and Bae Doona. We know that many cast members are playing multiple characters in different stories, sometimes changing race and gender. And the film is being shot in two parallel halves, with Tom Tykwer directing three stories and the Wachowskis directing three. This movie might be a wreck, but if so it will still be the most fascinating wreck of 2012. And if it is good it might be remarkable.

    In a new piece that focuses on the unconventional funding model for the movie, we get a bit more info about who’s directing what, and what characters at least one of the actors is playing.

    We’ve surmised thanks to set photos that Halle Berry plays the title character in the story called ‘Half-Lives: The First Luisa Rey Mystery,’ and that Tom Tykwer is directing that one.

    Now a New York Times report lets us know that Berry is also playing “a Jewish woman from the ’30s,” under the direction of Tom Tykwer, which means he is also making ‘Letters from Zedelghem,’ the story of a young musician who takes a job working for an irascible old composer. She also plays “an old tribal woman” for the Wachowskis, which suggests she’s got a role in ‘Sloosha’s Crossin’ an’ Ev’rythin’ After,’ the post-apocalyptic tale set in a distant future.

    There aren’t other hints to what actors play in the different stories, but Berry is quoted saying,

    Some days I go into the trailer, I’ll be having a conversation — I won’t even know it’s with Hugh Grant until five minutes in.

    That’s pretty wild; I can’t wait to see how some of these actors are used to fill out roles for which you’d never think they’d be suited.

    The bulk of the NYT piece, however, is focused on the unusual financing of the film, which ended up being a mix of money from South Korea, Germany, Singapore, China and a bit from Warner Bros., which will distribute the film in the us. As the basic desciption of the book and the unusual filming methodology make clear, this is not a routine movie, and the financing is appropriately sourced from seemingly disparate sources. (The Asian money, says the NYT, was the result of a certain cultural interest in that idea that one soul travels through all six stories.)

    The obvious question is: will this be the finding model for similarly ambitious films going forward? (I bet Warner Bros. would like to go back in time and apply this sort of money-gathering idea to Sucker Punch.) Without the money coming from many different sources, in a pattern that makes Cloud Atlas look like a gigantic indie movie, the film would never get made.

    Even the parallel units were born out of financing, as the filmmakers realized they’d be more likely to get big actors for little money if the shoot didn’t take months and months to complete.

    Tykwer and the Wachowskis refused to be interviewed, but distributor Victor Loewy, who saw the six minutes the directors showed recently at the American Film Market, says Cloud Atlas “looks phantasmagorical… It’s so unlike anything I’ve seen in 40 years in this business.”

    Here’s the description of the novel:

    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 civilization — 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.

    New Details on The Wachowskis’ CLOUD ATLAS; Halle Berry Says She Plays a Jewish Woman in 1930s and an “Old Tribal Woman”
    by Adam Chitwood Posted:December 6th, 2011 at 11:34 am

    halle_berry_cloud_atlas_slice_01

    The ambitious adaptation of David Mitchell’s Cloud Atlas is more than a little peculiar. Most of the actors in the star-studded ensemble are playing multiple roles, production is split between three directors and two separate units with two different crews (Andy and Lana Wachowski directing one unit, Tom Twyker directing the other), and the film is being financed by a hodgepodge of investors. It’s a smart business move that gives the famously secretive filmmakers an incredible amount of creative freedom for the epic undertaking. Today new details on the film have been revealed, with star Halle Berry saying two of the characters she plays include a Jewish woman in the 1930s and “an old tribal woman.” Hit the jump for much more.

    cloud-atlas-halle-berry-hugo-weaving-set-photoSpeaking with the New York Times (via The Playlist), Berry said that it’s actually hard to keep track of all the different actors on set given the intense amount of makeup going into their characters:

    “Some days I go into the trailer, I’ll be having a conversation — I won’t even know it’s with Hugh Grant until five minutes in.”

    Mitchell’s novel centers on multiple characters with interlocking storylines that take place across different locations and time periods. The NY Times piece notes that the Wachowskis and Twyker are operating two separate film units that are working simultaneously. This way the movie can be made in half the time and won’t require the A-list cast (that’s working for a much smaller fee than usual) to devote an extended period of time to the project. The result is that actors are moving back and forth between the two units on alternating days, sometimes even working essentially as an extra.

    Producers ran into trouble finding financing for the sprawling project until the filmmakers decided to translate the script into multiple Asian languages and shop it around the continent. They found that the film’s themes of reincarnation resonated with potential investors in the East, resulting in China, Korea and Singapore becoming the film’s predominant investors. Footage from the pic was recently shown at the American Film Market, with one distributor describing it as “phantasmagorical,” saying it’s “unlike anything I’ve seen in the last 40 years.” With the Wachowskis involved we expected something off-center, but Cloud Atlas sounds like a whole other beast.

    In addition to Berry and Grant, the cast also includes Tom Hanks, Susan Sarandon, Hugo Weaving, Ben Whishaw, James D’Arcy and Jim Sturgess.

    Berry: Cloud Atlas is confusing!

    (UKPA) – 1 day ago

    Halle Berry has revealed that she plays "a Jewish woman in the 1930s" and "an old tribal woman" in Cloud Atlas.

    The Oscar-winning actress leads the star-studded ensemble cast, which also includes Tom Hanks, Hugo Weaving, Susan Sarandon, Jim Broadbent, Jim Sturgess, Hugh Grant and Ben Whishaw in the ambitious big-screen adaptation of David Mitchell's complex novel, which is co-directed by the Wachowski brothers and Tom Tykwer.

    The 45-year-old also admitted she had difficulty keeping track of the movie's unconventional approach, telling the New York Times: "The biggest change for me as an actor is to have two different film units and two different film crews and to go between the two from one day to the next.

    "Some days I go into the trailer, I'll be having a conversation - I won't even know it's with Hugh Grant until five minutes in," she added.

    The film follows six plot threads across time - a 19th century notary on a Pacific expedition, a bisexual musician in the 1930s, a female journalist embroiled in a thriller in 1970s California, an ageing publisher in London in the present, a clone in a futuristic dystopia, and a Pacific survivor in a post-apocalyptic world - all of which fold in on themselves.

    Other details have been kept under wraps, but the film continues to shoot and is expected to be released in cinemas next year.

    Cloud Atlas, the movie adaptation of David Mitchell’s novel directed by The Wachowskis (The Matrix) and Tom Tykwer (Run Lola Run), has finally been given a release date in the US, having been eyed for a November debut in a few other countries.

    The news comes from Thompson on Hollywood who say the movie will bow on an Oscar-friendly date of December 6th, and Warner Bros. has allowed a running time of 2 hours and 44 minutes despite agreeing to 2 hours and 30 minutes when they came aboard as distributor.

    Cloud Atlas stars Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugo Weaving, Keith David, Jim Broadbent, Jim Sturgess, Ben Whishaw, Hugh Grant and Susan Sarandon. It follows six stories ranging from the South Pacific in the 19th Century to California in the 1970s to a post-apocalyptic future, and most of the cast will be playing multiple characters throughout the six stories, swapping race and gender in the process.
    A screening of the movie took place in London earlier this week, and even though those who attended will have been told to keep quiet, one guy tweeted his approval.

    Jon Young @jon_young

    @empiremagazine Saw a test screening of Cloud Atlas last night - still some unfinished VFX but looked extremely promising @ 3hrs run time.

    Cloud Atlas was also screened at the Cannes Film Festival this week to potential buyers, including distributors in the UK, and another test screening is set to take place in the US today. The Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer will likely be getting audience feedback so they can make some tweaks if needed.

    With a release date set and test screenings under-way, we can hopefully expect to see some marketing in the near future.

    Cloud Atlas, directed by Andy and Lana Wachowski and Tom Tykwer, stars Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, and Hugh Grant. It’s based on David Mitchell’s book that consists of six interconnected stories. Warner Bros will release domestically, but the studio did not finance the $100M film. Producer Grant Hill tells me when it became clear that Warner Bros couldn’t see how to make it within the studio system, the filmmakers chose a different route. That included a combination of equity from Asian sources and some rights deals. “We were lucky it went very well and got us the money we needed,” says Hill, adding, “When we had raised the amount we needed, we were feeling pretty good about it so we said why don’t we wait and hold back 3 or 4 territories.” The territories remaining are the UK, France, Japan and Spain. The screening could lead to deals closing soon. “There’s a lot of people talking to a lot of people… The nice part about having potential buyers in the screening is that they got to sit with people who had already bought the film and who were enthusiastic. But, you can’t control the situation, it could easily have gone the other way.” The financing structure “is a model I’d try again,” he says, “but it’s not a model that’s a fit for all situations.”

    A film Halle Berry is in that I can say I'm actually REALLY looking forward to seeing! It seems like it's been quite awhile since I've said those words.

    Of course I'm referring to the $100+ million big screen adaptation of David Mitchell's labyrinthine tome Cloud Atlas, which is being written and co-directed by Tom Tykwer (Run Lola Run), and The Wachowskis, with Halle Berry,Tom Hanks, Hugo Weaving, Keith David,Susan Sarandon, Ben Whishaw, Jim Broadbent, David Gyasi and several others in a variety of roles.

    The story, as already detailed previously, "weaves history, science, suspense, humor and pathos through six separate but loosely related narratives"… and… "Each of the narratives is set in a different time and place"… "from Melvillean high-seas drama to California noir and dystopian fantasy"… "each is written in a different prose style, each is broken off mid-action and brought to conclusion in the second half of the book"…

    We haven't had much to report on this in a few months, and with the Cannes Film Festival/Market in full swing, I figured we'd hear something soon enough.

    Lots of chatter around the project including word from indieWIRE's own Anne Thompson, who's at Cannes, reporting that the film screened for international buyers, and has a total running time of 2 hours and 44 minutes which Warner Bros has approved.

    Anne also reveals the WB plans to release the film Stateside on December 6th, likely in order to make it eligible for Oscar consideration. Well, well. I guess we shouldn't be surprised by that, if that is indeed the reason.

    And as SlashFilm notes, a test screening of the film happened in London earlier this week, with reactions from those present being positive, with one person calling it "surprisingly good."

    There is apparently another test screening of the film tonight, in Pasadena, CA. I wonder if any of our readers will be there for that. If so, email me (obensont@gmail.com)!

    So we've got a nearly-3-hour mind fuck of a movie - assuming it's true to the novel. Nice! :)

    It's one of the few films I can say I'm really looking forward to seeing this year.

    Also worth noting is that the core group of starring actors will play multiple roles across all the different storylines, periods and locations, which might make the film even more of a challenge to watch, but a good challenge.

    Above and below we've got our first look at the film, via images I posted previous, featuring Halle Berry and Keith David on set in Glasgow, Scotland a few months ago.

    Concept art for Cloud Atlas

    Things surrounding the Wachowski brothers' return behind the camera on Cloud Atlas became very buzzy in the last 24 hours as a screening of the film took place here in Cannes recently of a 2 hours and 44-minute cut of the film. The screening resulted in what is being reported to be a $20 million pick-up by Warner Bros. with eyes on a December 6 release date later this year.

    The film, based on the novel by David Mitchell, is an epic story of humankind in which the actions and consequences of our lives impact one another throughout the past, present and future as one soul is shaped from a murderer into a savior and a single act of kindness ripples out for centuries to inspire a revolution.

    Starring in the feature, which was shot for a reported $101 million, are Tom Hanks, Ben Whishaw, Hugo Weaving, Susan Sarandon, Jim Broadbent, Jim Sturgess, Hugh Grant, James D'Arcy, Halle Berry and Keith David.

    I included this on my early list of Best Picture predictions and beyond that, such a quick pick-up tells me we may be looking at something that's quite good and I did hear some second hand news on the film yesterday, saying that's exactly the case.

    The December 6 release date would make for a Thursday release, one day before Hyde Park on Hudson, so otherwise it would be virtually alone for a week before The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and Les Miserables hit theaters on December 14. Sounds like overall good scheduling if you ask me as all four of those films seem to counter one another.

    They're finally letting the cat out of the bag. Warner Bros has started screening early cuts of Cloud Atlas, the nearly finished Wachowskis & Tom Tykwer adaptation of David Mitchell's novel, featuring six storylines and actors playing multiple roles/genders/races. This is a project we've followed closely for a long time, not only because it's the latest Wachowskis movie, but because it has the potential to be amazing, with settings that span thousands of years. The studio recently screened the film in Cannes for buyers, and also held test screenings in London and Los Angeles, which I've heard some positive feedback from already. More below!

    The newest details come from an update via Thompson on Hollywood, the blog run by Anne Thompson who is here in Cannes. She's heard that the Warner Bros screened a finished 2 hours and 44 minute cut of it in Cannes earlier this week, for international distributors. The original contract said that it had to be under two and a half hours, but WB president Jeff Robinov has approved the slightly longer version (which is a good sign). At the moment, they're aiming to release Cloud Atlas in December, and I've heard it nearly is finished (including effects) so that may a possibility/reality. I'm glad they're not delaying this like Gravity.

    Thompson mentions a date of December 6th, however that seems odd since that date is a Thursday (and only 8 days before WB opens The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in theaters). We'll keep an eye out for an official date, but it may indeed be early December, meaning it could very well be a strong awards season contender. But does it even have any awards potential? Well, I've heard that many actors in it do indeed play different sexes/races, and that it balances six century-spanning storylines very well, so you never know. The cast: Tom Hanks, Hugo Weaving, Jim Sturgess, Halle Berry, Ben Whishaw, Jim Broadbent.

    Our friends at SlashFilm have confirmed that they've recently run test screenings in both London and Los Angeles, which is all part of the first phase of marketing, determining whether general audiences like the film (especially at nearly 3 hours) and their reactions to it. I've heard a few early reactions from a source, including that it's like The Matrix meets V for Vendetta meets Babel meets Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, which sounds kind of awesome overall. The editing is apparently the best part of the movie, as it does balance all six storylines well, and overall it's beautiful and affecting, shot rather classically, without fancy camera movements or anything that is technically groundbreaking. Very interesting. We'll keep an eye out for more.

    J'ai pas trop compris le sujet du film, mais co réalisé par les auteurs de la trilogie Matrix et le mec qui a fait Le Parfum, je vois pas comment je pourrais ne pas avoir envie de voir ça !!

  • critiqueattack

    Nan nan, c'est la nouvelle date, elle vient juste d'être annoncée. Après ça va dépendre de la post-prod et de la campagne de pub, s'ils pensent pas avoir le temps, ils repousseront, la sortie, mais j'espère pas.

    As the major studios focus on big-budget FX and brand-name tentpoles, and micro-indies spread like kudzu, the middle ranks of movies are being funded and produced outside the studio system. This is good and bad.

    On the positive side you get movies like the ambitious adaptation of David Mitchell's sprawling multi-period "Cloud Atlas," which was unaffordable at $170 million when Warner Bros. budgeted it--and passed. But the Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer raised money overseas and shot it for $101 million with a discounted Tom Hanks (who even gave up his usual back end). The studio bought all North American rights for about $20 million, and the movie got made the way the Wachowskis and Tykwer wanted it on foreign pre-sales. And the finished 2 hours and 44-minute movie, which Warners' Jeff Robinov has approved even though it exceeded the contractual two and half hours, screened Tuesday at Cannes for four remaining territories, including the U.K., France, Japan and Spain.

    Producer Grant Hill told me at the DDA party that Warners plans to open the movie stateside December 6 (although the date could move) and will screen it at Berlin. That makes it Oscar eligible.

    In a piece about the various financial comings and goings at Cannes, Anne Thompson has revealed specifics about the Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer’s ambitious, Tom Hanks-led adaptation of David Mitchell’s multi-tiered “Cloud Atlas,” which screened on Wednesday for international buyers, including details on its running time and domestic release date.

    Thompson first mentions the interesting details surrounding the film’s funding – initially the Wachowskis and Tykwer proposed that Warner Bros. finance the entire film (this was the studio, after all, that bankrolled the Wachowskis’ hugely successful “Matrix” films and considerably less successful “Speed Racer”). Warner Bros. passed, gawking at the $170 million production budget, and when they did, the directorial trio got lean (which included getting mega-budget stars like Hanks for peanuts), slimmed the budget down to $101 million, secured financing overseas, and according to Thompson, “got the movie made the way the Wachowskis and Tykwer wanted it on foreign pre-sales.” Oh, and Warner Bros. bought the domestic distribution rights for $20 million - nothing like having your cake and getting to eat it too, for a fraction of the price.

    Thompson is reporting that the film clocks in at 2 hours and 44 minutes, which Warner Bros. president Jeff Robinov let slide despite a contractual obligation to have the film come in at 2 and a half hours (or less). Quite frankly we’re amazing that the movie is that short – the novel, which cannot be recommended enough, consists of six interlocking stories that ripple out from one another and interweave in astounding ways (the stories cover everything from a paperback-y seventies thriller to a poetically post-apocalyptic tale of survival). In short: it’s a fucking epic. The script came in at well over 200 pages as well, so clearly a lot of trimming's been done.

    What’s more, a stateside release date is being reported, with Warner Bros. opening the film in America on December 6th. This release date (in prime Oscar territory), along with the lax approach to the running time, indicates to us that the film is really, really good, and the fact that the movie is already finished means that Warner Bros. can screen it earlier and get the buzz rolling.

    peaking of films screening early, it was revealed today that the Wachowski siblings' and Tom Tykwer's epic "Cloud Atlas" has played in Cannes for international buyers. Apparently it has a December release date stateside and it's two hours and forty-five minutes long! Oscar contender or something that will put the olds to sleep? Time will tell.

  • TheJaeger

    premier avis sur le film : http://www.actucine.com/cinema...

  • TheJaeger

    ça va tu t'amuses bien ?

  • WachowskiBrothers

    En gros c'est 6 histoires qui en apparence n'ont rien à voir mais qui s rejoignent toute (bref un truc qu'on a pas l'habitude de voir) :hot:

  • TheJaeger

    bein c'est surtout l'adapatation d'un roman ;)

    bein les histoires se rejoignent pas vraiment, mais un message est véhiculé dans chaque, et il y a de petites connexions scénaristiques.

  • critiqueattack

    à surveiller de près

  • critiqueattack

    Yes! Prévu pour le 26/10/12 (aux usa malheureusement)

  • WachowskiBrothers

    toujours pas de nouvelle pour la sortie ?

  • Tony Arkham

    première images du film :)

  • atomica

    Heu... en effet le trailer est fantastique... la vache...

  • Tony Arkham

    C'est moi ou Tom Hanks jouent aussi un chinois dans le film, dans la BA j'avais l'impression de le voir maquillé en chinois non?

  • TheJaeger

    depuis le temps que j'attendais ça !!!!

  • TheJaeger

    Halle Berry est une excellente actrice qui ne se résume pas à Catwoman ^^

  • willydemon

    Oh oui, un film fleuve! :D Avec Doona Bae :D

  • tarja-ltr17

    Wow ça a l'air tout tout bon! dommage qu'ils aient choisit halle berry en espérant qu'elle fasse mieux que catwoman ^^'

  • ReM_07

    Euh rassurez-moi, Natalie Portman est toujours de la partie ? Elle devait jouer un second rôle je crois mais plus de traces dans le casting...

  • Xsmooth

    Interessant projet, c'est pour bientôt qui plus est. Peut être la bonne surprise de l'année.

  • TheJaeger

    rem_07 : bein franchement je ne sais pas, elle n'est créditée nulle part.

  • critiqueattack

    Sniff... ça sent le chef-d'œuvre!! La BA m'a complètement retourné... Et pendant plus de 5 min en plus.

  • JokerDreizen

    Intéressant.

  • ReM_07

    Arf ! J'ai beau cherché, impossible de savoir si elle est d'une quelconque manière toujours associée au projet.

  • Micky r.

    Il à l'air bouleversant le film !

  • Autorits

    Bae Doona

  • Autorits

    Je crains quand même l’échec annoncé. Proposer une bande annonce de cinq minutes montre bien que pour les promoteurs ne savent pas comment vendre le film ni quel publique cibler. J'espère me tromper (Bae Doona ♥)

  • Julia Santana

    cen est plus Larry Wachowski mais Lana il y a eu un changement de sexe

  • Fragredocroix

    bande annonce :

  • acfred

    il me tarde de le voir; une date vite!

  • critiqueattack

    Autorits : d'après ce qu'on m'a dit la BA à aussi servi de "pilot" car cloud atlas a été produit indépendamment, et il a fallu que les wachowski trouvent un studio pour la diffusion (ce qui explique sa longueur). Pour la qualité je me fais pas de souci mais c'est vrai que l'échec financier guette ce film. Sortie le 26/10 et presque personne n'en n'a entendu parlé... Soit la Warner mise tout sur une grosse campagne de pub (et prend le risque d'avoir un déficit encore plus important) soit elle mise tout sur la popularité des "créateurs de matrix" et compte plus sur le bouche-à-oreille (seulement avec speed racer la popularité des wachowski en à pris un coût).

  • Flucinne A.

    Après avoir fait des recherches sur internet, je n'ai pas réussi à trouver la bande annonce en VOSTFR pour ainsi la partager sur les réseaux sociaux et faire découvrir aux alentours ce que nous réserve les Wachowski. Car de nombreux fans de la trilogie Matrix ne savent pas encore qu'un grand film est en cours. Auriez-vous un lien où est-ce que le bureau d'Allociné pourrait se pencher dessus?
    Merci

  • TheJaeger

    il n'y a actuellement aucune version VOST.

    bande annonce VOSTfr, pensez à activez les sous-titres.

    Dan estici : Direct to dvd? Non je pense pas. Cloud atlas est un blockbuster (et un qui a du potentiel), même s'il fait un flop aux USA, il bénéficiera quand même d'une large diffusion. De plus se sont d'autres studios qui s'occupent de la distribution en Asie et en Europe de l'Est. Donc rien empêche la Warner d'attendre et de voir si le film a du succès ailleurs dans le monde, et s'il mérite une distribution en europe de l'ouest. Mais perso je suis confiant. Peut être que ce n'est qu'un rêve stupide, mais j'espère que les ricains vont se déplacer pour assister à un film original et surprenant, et non pas rester chez eux car le film paraît un peu complexe.

  • guestar13

    Dan : je suis d'accord avec toi en ce moment il se dise est ce qu'on sort ce film ou pas? En tout cas, il risque de sortir dans 6 mois, si ca sort !

  • Benjamin F.

    Je ne suis vraiment pas séduit par cette bande annonce. Ca m'a l'air lisse et terriblement pompeux. Ca me fait la même impression que L'Odyssée de Pi. Il ne suffit pas d'aligner les images de cartes postales léchées à l'extrême sur un air de piano pour s'auto-proclamer "chef d’œuvre poétique"...

  • critiqueattack

    guestar13 : il sort le 26/10

  • bobzogu

    Etrange. Entre la poésie et le grand n'importe quoi.
