New “Cloud Atlas” still and production art reveal the Wachowskis’ vision for 2144

When the Wachowskis released the first image to promote their upcoming film “Cloud Atlas” last week, there wasn’t much for the average person to sink their teeth into. Fans of the David Mitchell novel would recognize props like the VW Beetle and the Chatham Island totems, but there was no first look at the sets or characters that make up the six entwined storylines in the film.

Well, no longer. HanCinema, the Korean movie and drama database, got their hands on a still from the film that takes place in dystopian futuristic Korea. It features Korean actress Bae Doona (“The Host”) as Sonmi-451, a clone who serves as the main character for one of the movie’s six plotlines. In the novel, her portion is called “An Orison of Sonmi-451.”

In addition to the still of Doona, HanCinema also posted two images of concept art for the Korean portion of the film. Needless to say, the art shows a very Wachowski vibe and likely the final product of this portion of the film will look very similar to what these pictures depict. One of them is titled Seoul, 2144, the setting of “An Orison of Sonmi-451.”

Hopefully the Wackowskis continue to roll out images from the film in a similar fashion. “Cloud Atlas” also stars Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugh Grant, Susan Sarandon, Hugo Weaving, Ben Whishaw, James D’Arcy and Jim Sturgess. Each actor will play multiple roles in the movie. The film recently wrapped production and is due in theaters on October 26, 2012.

“Cloud Atlas” behind-the-scenes photo shows off the Wachowskis and movie props

The Wachowskis are never creators to do anything the usual way, and that’s why we love them so much. Their upcoming genre-bending film “Cloud Atlas” that teams them up with director Tom Tykwer recently wrapped filming, and to celebrate that the production team released a unique first-look photo of the film to Empire magazine. Instead of showing the cast or a scene from the film, the Wachowskis, Tykwer and members of their creative team took a posed photo on set with a bunch of the film’s props.

Novelist David Mitchell, executive producers Uwe Schott and Philip Lee and producers Stefan Arndt and Grant Hill join Lana and Andy Wachowski and Tykwer in standing next to props from the movie’s six interlinking tales. The Wachowskis are standing in front of the VW Beetle that Halle Berry’s character drives in the movie. In addition, there are also Chatham Island totems, a piano belonging to the composer of the “Letters from Zedelghem” chapters, gadgetry from dystopian futuristic Korea and a cart that Empire is guessing will be used to carry post-apocalyptic veggies around Hawaii.

“Cloud Atlas” stars Berry, Tom Hanks, Jim Sturgess, Hugo Weaving, Susan Sarandon and Hugh Grant, and will be in theaters on October 26, 2012.
