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:

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:

In the case of evaluating David Cronenberg, — or at least forming the sort of career narrative seemingly essential to auteurist analysis — it’s inevitable to propose something of a rupture within his oeuvre: the very evident graduation from grindhouse to arthouse, and, with it, an ascension from body to mind. What dictated these labels […]
Every week we dive into the cream of the crop when it comes to home releases, including Blu-ray and DVDs, as well as recommended deals of the week. If we were provided screener copies, we’ll have our own write-up, but if that’s not the case, one can find official descriptions from the distributors. Check out […]
Writing about the films of Robert Bresson usually begins by informing reader that his films must be discussed through a trance of hushed tones and quiet veneration. There is no room for rushed judgement or quick-witted observations; Bresson makes Serious Art, as opposed to Hollywood directors who do not. There are the key phrases to […]
