Cloud Atlas will shock says Tom Hanks
Tom Hanks believes that Sci-fi/Mystery Cloud Atlas will shock audiences.
The 56-year-old actor, who stars alongside Halle Berry, Jim Broadbent, Hugh Grant, Hugo Weaving, Ben Whishaw and Susan Sarandon, said he is proud to be part of such a ground-breaking film based on the best-selling novel by David Mitchell.
Tom said: “There are going to be people out there who are going to say, ‘Who do they think they are to make this movie like this?’ That’s been the case with every great film. They said the same thing about The Cabinet of Dr Caligari in the silent days.
“I think every audience is yearning to be surprised. I am bored when I walk into the theatre expecting A, B and C, and a movie delivers A, B and C. I want to see something brand new that I never anticipated coming a hundred million miles away. And my God, that happens before the words ‘Cloud Atlas’ appear up on the screen on this one.”
The film is co-directed by American siblings Lana and Andy Wachowski, creators of The Matrix films, who wrote the screenplay and directed Cloud Atlas with German filmmaker Tom Tykwer, of Run Lola Run fame.
