The bit-by-bit reveal of Cloud Atlas continues over at HeyUGuys, who’ve debuted four new shots which feature Bae Doona, Keith David, Halle Berry, Jim Broadbent, Susan Sarandon, Tom Hanks, and Jim Sturgess.

Looper hits theaters on September 28th. The still can be seen right below:

The film follows Ansel (Leland Orser), a once-famed cult deprogrammer that is looking at diminishing returns on his success. When a couple find him in hopes that […]
