Earlier this month, we got another stunning trailer for Andy and Lana Wachowski's time-jumping sci-fi epic, Cloud Atlas. Now it's poster time. Check out the brand new imagery that showcases much of the film's huge cast.

Like the trailers, the poster features a huge selection of faces and several locales from the past to the far future. And also like the trailers, Tom Hanks' presence seems to dominate the landscape. Check it out (click to enlarge):

What do you think? It's got kind of a classic epic movie arrangement, cramming as much stuff into the frame as possible, and it's definitely eye-catching. And what's with the ink on Hanks' face? Is this future Hanks? We'll get all the answers (maybe) when Cloud Atlas opens October 26. In the meantime, here's another look at the synopsis.

"An epic story of humankind in which the actions and consequences of our lives impact one another throughout the past, present and future as one soul is shaped from a murderer into a savior and a single act of kindness ripples out for centuries to inspire a revolution."
