I still don't.
But now the nearly six-minute trailer has been released (six being a significant number in Cloud Atlas), and...I'm on the fence. In some ways, it really captures the book - the jarringly different styles, the atmospheres, the overall interconnectedness - but it still very much feels to me like there's no way to pull this off.
I intend to see it, for the fact that it's one of my all-time favorite books (and out of curiousity. And for Ben Wishaw, if nothing else), but I feel like this is either going to be the most stunningbreathtakingawe-inspiring thing ever, or spectacularly full of fail.
One of the two.
