Lost in the Cloud Atlas.

Here’s the latest trailer for the SF film Cloud Atlas. It will be interesting to see if this does as well as the scifi movie Looper, which has been leaving far more critics that usual breathless and raving about the film. We haven’t seen it here yet, but it’s on the list. Two very different […]
