So, did any of you bastards check this out in the theaters? I was hoping to go last week, but Superwhore Sandy got in the way of my plans. Hopefully sometime this week, but leave your thoughts on the film below if you happened to watch it.
The Wachowski brothers’ latest epic “Cloud Atlas” premiered in Berlin last night, with at least a few more premieres set to happen over the next week. Since it’s release on October 26, the film has earned around $18 million on the domestic front, so let’s hope it has more success overseas. The production budget was $102 million.
The film stars Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jim Broadbent, and Hugo Weaving, amongst others and after having premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival is set for wide-release on October 26th. For more info, visit the Cloud Atlas official website.
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. [Wiki]

I could careless about Sarah Palin, John McCain & bullshit politics, but I have to admit, I was a little intrigued by the trailers on HBO. The film, which is based on the book of the same name by journalists John Heilemann and Mark Halperin, attempts to document the Republican Party during the 2008 United States presidential election, with significant focus on the introduction of then-Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin as the vice-presidential nominee. Julianne Moore does an amazing job as Sarah Palin–kind of like a serious version of Tina Fey’s more humorous impersonation.

Tom Hanks is helping to lead a last-minute drive to avert a strike by Hollywood actors that could cripple the entertainment industry for the second time in less than a year.
