Tons of Awesome Pics from 'Cloud Atlas'!

We've been waiting for a look at the ambitious Cloud Atlas since, well, forever. Finally, we have 22 first looks, and they get me wholly and truly psyched! I don't have time to spell out the background to this one, so click here if you don't know it already. This debuts at Toronto in September (by the way, click here to see the sickening line-up at Toronto this year). No news on an SA release yet though. After the jump, see the pics (and the odd description).

By the way, as I was writing this I caught wind of the fact that a five minute international trailer had been leaked. I watched it (here is a Youtube link which probably won't last), and could not believe my eyes at how unbelievable fantastic it looks! I can't remember the last time I felt that way in a trailer. The scope of the thing is so massive, it reminds me of those awesome clips that summarize the best of an entire year (ie the Kees Van Dijkhuizen videos). Wow, I'm giddy. Anyway, the official trailer is being released tonight (SA time). I will update as soon as possible.

Escape from Nea So Copros (An Orison of Sonmi-451)

Faffing on the beach, or something like that (The Pacific Journal of Adam Ewing)

Autua (The Pacific Journal of Adam Ewing)

Papa Song's - so much cooler than I imagined! (An Orison of Sonmi-451)

What the absolute fuck is this? Looks like Hugh Grant, but please help me. UPDATE: I figured it out! It is Ol' Georgie from Sloosha's Crossin' an' Ev'rythin' After.  This revelation has resulted in a chain reaction of epiphanies regarding the manner in which this film has been put together (I noticed after realizing the pattern of characters played by Hugh Grant). The result is going to be absolutely positively un-fucking-believable!

Sonmi-451 in distress (An Orison of Sonmi-451)

Not so sure. It's Doona Bae and Jim Sturgess, but not sure where.

Timothy Cavendish plots his escape (The Ghastly Ordeal of Timothy Cavendish)

The Interview  (An Orison of Sonmi-451)

I can't remember which character this is  (Half Lives: The First Luisa Rey Mystery)

Zachry (I think) enjoys the view (Sloosha's Crossin' an' Ev'rythin' After)

Not sure where this shot is from, but it is Bae Doona, and probably An Orison of Sonmi-451

Luisa Rey takes the plunge (Half Lives: The First Luisa Rey Mystery)

Timothy Cavendish having a look see (The Ghastly Ordeal of Timothy Cavendish)

Unsurprisingly, Hugo Weaving plays an asshole: Bill Smokes (Half Lives: The First Luisa Rey Mystery)

A scene I can't remember at all.
