I Have No Idea What's Going On in the Wachowski's Cloud Atlas Trailer, But It Sure Looks Neat

A few weeks ago, we unspooled the first, massive trailer for Tom Twyker and the Wachowki’s Cloud Atlas. It was over five minutes long, and made very little sense. This new trailer is a more manageable two and a half minutes, and while it looks visually superb, there’s so much going on in it that it’s impossible to piece together the plot. I suppose that’s fitting, given that David Mitchell’s Cloud Atlas novel is a collection of short stories, but in weaving them together with the same actors playing different characters from different stories, the Wachowski’s have created a movie that ultimately may be very good, but one that’s going to be difficult to market.
