Are you still dizzy from the trippy first look at Cloud Atlas last week? Here's something to bring you back to earth. Lana and Andy join director Tom Tykwer in a little chat to guide you through the maze of motivations responsible for what could be the coolest film of 2012.
It's no secret the source material for the Wachowskis' genre-blending, phantasmagoric adaptation of Tom Mitchell's 2004 novel, Cloud Atlas , is a labyrinth of entwined timelines and story threads. To answer why the three filmmakers chose this impossible task and released a really, really long trailer, they've filmed this rare short interview, resulting in that oddest of media forms ... the loopy trailer commentary.
Watch the original 6-minute trailer again, then hear the talented trio talk shop.
Well, that clears up a few things. Except why Lana is wearing neon pink dreadlocks?
Addicted to the visual orgasm of the extended trailer? You won't have to wait long for a fix. Starring Tom Hanks and Halle Berry, Cloud Atlas storms into theaters Oct. 26.
