It’s safe to say that the next film from Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer is easily one of our most-anticipated for the rest of the year. We gave our positive take on the multi-century spanning epic Cloud Atlas back in Toronto and now with the film almost exactly a month away from release, Warners Bros. is gearing up with more materials on the film starring Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jim Sturgess, Susan Sarandon, Ben Whishaw, Jim Broadbent, Hugh Grant, James D’Arcy and Keith David.
In addition to announcing a same-day IMAX release, featuring a digitally re-mastered version of the film, the studio has also revealed seven new banners featuring many of the actors mentioned above. They do a great job of showing just how many different time and locations are captured. We’ve also got new TV spots which do their best in downsizing the six-minute trailer into bite-sized pieces. Check out all the banners below thanks to the official Facebook page, as well as the two new TV spots.

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we believe it’s our duty to highlight the recent, recommended titles that have recently hit the interwebs. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of [...]
In theaters now, Ivan Reitman‘s new film, Draft Day, does quite a bit with a hard subject. Part of that is the writing, but a lot of the success on screen is due to the amassing of talent Reitman manages and the flash he implants into ordinary scenes. The life of a GM during a tumultuous and pressure-packed [...]
