Movie Trailer of the Day: Sci-fi flick Cloud Atlas, adapted from David Mitchell’s beloved 2004 novel, is “an epic story of humankind in which the actions and consequences of our lives impact one another throughout the past, present and future as one soul is shaped from a murderer into a savior and a single act of kindness ripples out for centuries to inspire a revolution.”
Or, as directors Lana and Andy Wachowski and Tom Tykwer acknowledge:
The movie is hard to sell, because it’s hard to describe, it’s hard to reduce. So we decided to make a really, really, really long trailer, and just put it out there. We hope you like it.
Starring Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jim Broadbent, Hugo Weaving, Jim Sturgess, Doona Bae, Ben Whishaw, James D’Arcy, Xun Zhou, Keith David, David Gyasi, Susan Sarandon, and Hugh Grant, the film is out October 26.

The First Full Trailer For ‘Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance’
Holy crap, Neveldine & Taylor’s ‘Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance’ looks just as insane as I hoped it would. Marvel getting the ‘Crank’ directors to do their version of Ghost Rider was a perfect creative decision. Ghost Rider uses flamming whip-like chains, vomits flaming bullets and pisses fire. I’m keeping my fingerscrossed that Nic Cages insanity plus the kinetic directing style of Neveldine & Taylor ends up making ‘Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengenec’ one of hell an incredible and visceral 3D experience. I hate 3D and cant wait to see this in 3D. This movie looks dope!
‘Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vegence’ hits theaters on February 17th, 2012.

Brit author Neil Gaiman is set to shepherd his much-loved novel American Gods onto TV screens in 2013.
Though as recently as March this year Gaiman was talking about Gods being turned into a movie, the author has struck a deal with co-producers Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman and their production company Playtone.
American Gods is being planned as a six season TV show, with each season consisting of 10-12 hour-long episodes.
The budget’s nothing to be sniffed at either, with each season given a money bag containing $35-40m. Nothing compared to The Pacific’s $225m, but way above anything else on network television.
