Autumn always seems to bring the most interesting and challenging films – and Cloud Atlas, from a novel that even its author described as ‘unfilmable’ is definitely both. By slipping from one arc to another (six in all) repeatedly, filmmakers Andy and Lana Wachowski and Tom Tykwer link tales of characters who are bound together through past, present and future to create a rich tapestry of visual styles and philosophical depth.
If a movie currently has a release date in October, then a brand new trailer came out for it this past week! As such, GeekScholars Movie News has a whole bunch of Preview Reviews for you this episode including new looks at: Cloud Atlas, Killing Them Softly, Taken 2, and Skyfall.
After that, GeekScholar Fox gives us his thoughts on the remake of Total Recall, while GeekScholars Chris and Lauren checked out the fantastic independent film, Beasts of the Southern Wild.
The GeekScholars crew then wraps things up with a few quickies, including some news on The Hobbit, Thor: The Dark World, X-Men: Days of Future Past, and the sequel to Prometheus.
Take a gander (but with your ears) right here!
