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. The lattermost even gets to appear twice, as two different people of two different races in two different time periods. Because that’s how this movie works.
There’s not much to say, really, other than to (briefly) comment upon the clearly disparate — though, with any luck, not incongruous — settings and, even in still form, tones that the Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer are aiming to combine here. One’s tense, one is romantic, another’s ominous, and the picture set aboard a ship could be just about anything — which might prove to be true of the film as a whole.
Cloud Atlas will open on October 26th, while you can see the new shots above and below:
As a little extra treat, HeyUGuys also managed to get their hands on an image from Rian Johnson‘s Looper. It’s easy to assume you’ve already seen plenty from the sci-fi action slammer by this point, but how much have you seen of Noah Segan? Not a lot, I’d reckon.
This photo amends that problem, giving us a closer look at his character, Kid Blue, who’s clearly found himself in something of a violent bind. It’s a cool little peek, so let’s hope not much more is revealed for the next month and a half.
Looper hits theaters on September 28th. The still can be seen right below:

Genre film fans are likely familiar with writer Alex Garland‘s output over the last decade and a half. He made his name with a splash when his novel was adapted into the backpacking adventure thriller The Beach in 2000 and struck again with screenplay for 28 Days Later which some credit as the fire that helped reignite […]
