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.
The Company You Keep Trailer: Shia LaBeouf Hunts Robert Redford
By Kyle Buchanan
The reinvention of Shia LaBeouf continues, but in the new Robert Redford–directed drama The Company You Keep, LaBeouf leads not with his bushy beard or wang, instead letting his dogged journalistic drive and unflattering spectacles dominate the proceedings. You see, Susan Sarandon was recently arrested for decades-old Weather Underground crimes, and LaBeouf has a hunch that there may be one other former revolutionary who slipped from view; soon enough, he's closing in on Redford, who took on a new life under an assumed name after a Weather Underground bank robbery gone wrong in the seventies. Standing in the way of the two men? A giant cast of talented supporting actors, including Anna Kendrick, Nick Nolte, Julie Christie, Terrence Howard, and Stanley Tucci.
