I will admit that after seeing the film for the first time, I was a bit disappointed. I hadn’t read the book but had watched the five minute trailer a dozen or so times (see below).
The trailer was just epic. It was the perfect introduction to the stories of Cloud Atlas and showed all the characters and how the stories lead into each other. It weaved the tale of multiple lifetimes being played out through the same individuals and perfectly interlaced the different stories with a perfectly chosen voice over that was all accompanied by the film score and M83’s Outro.
It’s quite literally the best trailer ever. Watching the trailer I thought I was in for an easy movie to follow and one I’d enjoy without effort.
