'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

Andy and Lana Wachowski on 'Cloud Atlas,' Tom Tykwer, and working as brother and sister

WACHOWSKIS

The Wachowski siblings racked up plenty of firsts while making their new movie Cloud Atlas, out Oct. 26. The new time-jumping drama — starring Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, and Hugh Grant —  is the first movie of the decade for the pair, who became some of Hollywood’s most respected and elusive filmmakers after the success of the Matrix trilogy. Cloud Atlas is their first crack at adapting a novel and working with a codirector, German auteur Tom Tykwer, who wrote and shot the epic film with them. And as plenty of sites including our own have already pointed out, it’s also the first time the siblings are credited as Andy and Lana, rather than Andy and Larry. Lana identifies as female and made her first public appearance in a promotional Cloud Atlas interview, sporting a neon hairstyle reminiscent of Franke Potente in Tykwer’s 1998 hit Run Lola Run. “We’re brother and sister,” says Andy Wachowski, who talked to EW alongside Lana and Tykwer for our Fall Movie Preview (on stands now). “It’s different in the way people perceive it and the way that the media perceives it. But the set is our set, and we run it like we always run it.” Read ahead to see what else the trio had to say about their Cloud Atlas collaboration. READ FULL STORY

'Cloud Atlas' trailer starring Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Tom Hanks and Halle Berry -- VIDEO

Cloud Atlas (out Oct. 26) is certainly one of the most ambitious films of this fall: an epic, genre-spanning amalgam of the six interlocking stories in David Mitchell’s 2004 novel, adapted for the screen and co-directed by the trio of Andy and Lana Wachowski (The Matrix) and Tom Tywker (Run Lola Run). So it seems only appropriate that the movie’s trailer, which went up today on Apple’s trailer site, is equally grand.

Each of the book’s six stories is represented, including the tales of an investigative journalist (Halle Berry) hounding an energy company, a Hawaiian tribesman (Tom Hanks) befriending a representative of a futuristic society (Berry again), and a young British composer (Ben Whishaw) living with his mentor (Jim Broadbent). But the overall effect is that the stories blend into a continuous narrative, with each actor playing multiple roles to underline the theme of connectivity. The clip is over six minutes long and has no shortage of impressive sights, from futuristic sci-fi effects to sweeping historical panoramas — exactly what you’d expect from a collaboration between visual maestros like the Wachowskis and Tywker. Watch it below.
