Cloud Atlas Trailer Drives Book Sales

A long trailer for Cloud Atlas has been released online, giving us a glimpse of Tom Hanks and Halle Berry in the adaptation of David Mitchell‘s award-winning novel. Follow this link to watch the trailer at Apple.

According to The Wall Street Journal, the trailer has driven some new interest in the book, making it the seventh most popular book on Amazon: “To cash in on the renewed interest, Random House has ordered a new paperback printing of 25,000 copies, to hit stores before a special movie-tie in edition of the book is released in September. Currently, “Cloud Atlas” has 227,000 paperback copies in print in the U.S.”

We’ve embedded the trailer above–what do you think? The film comes out October 26th. Follow this link to see cast photos from the movie as well. The Matrix creators Andy Wachowski and Lana Wachowski (the creators of The Matrix) directed the movie.
