Check out this exclusive featurette, Cloud Atlas: Everything Is Connected, below, in which Hanks, Sturgess, Grant, Berry, and other actors talk about how the film’s various characters are all bound together.

'Cloud Atlas' score co-composed by director Tom Tykwer -- EXCLUSIVE TRACK

Cloud Atlas co-director Tom Tykwer is not only a talented writer and filmmaker, but he also knows how to weave his own music into his films. The orchestral original soundtrack for the upcoming sci-fi fantasy epic, composed by Tykwer and his longtime scoring partners, will be out digitally Oct. 23 and on CD Nov. 6 in a 23-track set, EW can exclusively confirm.

The movie, based on David Mitchell’s novel, spans 500 years and stars a long litany of A-listers such as Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, and Hugh Grant in multiple roles snaking through six different eras ranging from 1849 to 1973 to 2346. The movie comes out in theaters Oct. 26.

Tykwer, who wrote and directed Cloud Atlas with The Matrix filmmakers Lana and Andy Wachowski, composed the film’s equally dramatic score with Johnny Klimek and Reinhold Heil. The trio have worked together for years as Pale 3, composing, arranging and playing music for Tykwer’s films Run Lola Run, The Princess and the Warrior and Perfume: The Story of a Murderer, among others.

Check out this exclusive Cloud Atlas track, below, titled “All Boundaries Are Conventions,” which starts off with a slow piano melody that spreads upwards into an emotional flurry of violins and a deep-voiced choir. READ FULL STORY

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).
