“Cloud Atlas” at Cannes?

But not for the competition section, or even shown to the general public. The movie was shown to international buyers at Cannes. The film clocked at 2 hours 44 minutes, which seems really, really long, but if you’ve read the book, it’s kind of amazing the managed to make it less than 4 hours. Release date is december 6th in the US, in time to be eligible fo the Oscars. Interesting, the North American distribution rights is bought by Warner Bros, the studio who initially passed on teh project, forcing the Wachowkis and Tom Tykwer to raise the money from overseas investors.
