If there ever was a movie that takes advantage of the full-screen IMAX treatment, it’s the upcoming sprawling, colorful epic Cloud Atlas.

The film will be digitally remastered into IMAX format and released in select IMAX theaters in North America on Oct. 26, Warner Bros. and IMAX confirmed to EW.com on Monday.

Directed by siblings Lana and Andy Wachowski, who helmed The Matrix blockbusters, and Run Lola Run filmmaker Tom Tykwer, the movie tells a story spanning 500 years. Based on the bestselling 2004 novel by David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas stars Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugh Grant, Jim Broadbent, Susan Sarandon, Xun Zhou, and a slew of other known actors taking on varied, multiple roles, from a bald-headed, foul-mouthed writer (Hanks) to a violent futuristic villain covered in face paint (Grant).

“Trailblazing filmmakers Tom Tykwer and the Wachowskis understand how to transport moviegoers through ground-breaking imagery and scale,” said Greg Foster, chairman and president of IMAX Filmed Entertainment, in a statement. “We’re excited to build on our partnerships with Warner Bros. and the filmmakers and present this epic tale in IMAX.”
