‘CLOUD ATLAS’ RELEASES IN U.S. MAY 14

Monday, May 13th, 2013

Cloud Atlas releases tomorrow in the U.S. on DVD, Blu-ray (Combo Pack) and Digital Download, and in the UK on July 1st.  Directed by Lana Wachowski, Andy Wachowski and Tom Tykwer and featuring a stellar cast which includes Tom HanksHalle Berry, Jim Sturgess, Jim Broadbent, Doona BaeHugh Grant, Ben Whishaw, James D’Arcy, and Susan Sarandon, the film is the perfect combination of big-budget effects and creative storytelling.

Cloud Atlas reveals something new with each viewing and true fans will enjoy adding the film to their personal collection. The film’s unconventional structure is precisely what allows it to create meaning with connections, both visual and aural, which are so immense in scope that they can only be absorbed entirely after multiple viewings.  Watch the film’s DVD/Blu-Ray trailer below and purchase the film in the JSO Store (via Amazon US) here and pre-order it (via Amazon UK - releases July 1) here.  It is also available through Movies On Demand.  Check your local on-demand channel listings.


Hi Def Digest offers this review of the release and the special features which are included:

A daring attempt to explore the human condition in six vastly different epochs, ‘Cloud Atlas’ is an all-encompassing and sprawling cinematic examination of the things which inspire and motivate us as a species. Adapted from the sweeping David Mitchell novel, the multi-genre film is a dazzling piece of entertainment that manages to stay focused and delivers a satisfying conclusion. It debuts on Blu-ray with reference-quality video and an excellent audio presentation. Supplements aren’t very extensive, but they’re amusing and surprisingly insightful nonetheless, making the overall package recommended for fans and a strong rental for others.

Below is a list of the special features included on the Blu-Ray Combo pack:

  • Everything is Connected (HD, 8 min) — A mix of BTS footage and clips intertwined with interviews on how each story is entwined.
  • The Impossible Adaptation (HD, 9 min) — As the title implies, the Wachowskis, Tom Tykwer and author David Mitchell talk about the novel’s complex plot and the challenge of adapting it into film.
  • The Essence of Acting (HD, 7 min) — Essentially several minutes praising the performances and playing various characters.
  • Spaceships, Slaves & Sextets (HD, 8 min) — An amusing discussion on how the interlocking stories blend into one another with some rather insightful thoughts about the overarching plot.
  • The Bold Science Fiction of Cloud Atlas (HD, 7 min) — More interviews with cast & crew talking about the film’s sci-fi elements and the various production touches connecting each story.
  • Eternal Recurrence: Love, Life, and Longing (HD, 8 min) — With more BTS footage, interviews focus on the film’s romance elements and the clever design touches sprinkled throughout.
