'Cloud Atlas' Sails into Imax Theaters October 26
TORONTO – An Imax run is in the cards for Cloud Atlas next month.
The epic drama by the Wachowski siblings and Tom Tykwer will be digitally re-mastered and released in select North American Imax theatres on Oct. 26.
Based on David Mitchell's best-selling 2004 novel, Cloud Atlas was written and directed by Lana Wachowski, Tom Tykwer and Andy Wachowski.
The Wachowskis saw their blockbuster Matrix franchise screen in Imax theaters.
Their latest film, which bowed in Toronto earlier this month, stars Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jim Broadbent, Xun Zhou, Susan Sarandon and Hugh Grant, all appearing in multiple roles.
"Trailblazing filmmakers Tom Tykwer and the Wachowskis understand how to transport moviegoers through ground-breaking imagery and scale," Greg Foster, chairman and president of Imax Filmed Entertainment as he brings the epic tale to his giant screens.
