A trailer for the upcoming Cloud Atlas debuted earlier this week and at an epic length of over 5 minutes, it gives cinema goers a good idea of the scope of the film.

Adapted from an original novel of the same name by David Mitchell and featuring an ensemble cast that includes the likes of Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jim Broadbank, Jim Sturgess and Hugh Grant, the directing duties are shared between the Wachowskis (Matrix series) and Tom Tykwer (Run Lola Run).
