The sheer magnitude of ‘Cloud Atlas’, the new film from the Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer, can be summed up in one word: Epic. After all, it is a story that spans the past, present, and future. It features an all-star cast playing multiple roles of different ages, sexes, and races. And to start getting the word out there, the advertisements are being unleashed to reach the general public in order to spread the message of epicness.

Thanks to Comic Book Movie, we have three new television spots and a bunch of new banner posters for the adaptation of David Mitchell’s critically acclaimed novel. In the first spot, you can get an idea of what the critics are already saying about the film that is currently making it’s festival rounds at the moment. Then, the remaining two do their best to compress the complex message of the film into thirty seconds of attention grabbing snippets. Check out the spots below, followed by a few banner posters showcasing a few of the couples that play roles in this huge movie:

Starring Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugo Weaving, Susan Sarandon, Jim Sturgess, Hugh Grant, Ben Wishaw, Keith David, Jim Broadbent, and James D’Arcy, ‘Cloud Atlas’ will be released in theaters on October 26th.
