First Stunning Trailer for Cloud Atlas

Hey, guess who’s back from his overlong spring hiatus thanks to this amazing over five minutes long first trailer for 20th Century Fox’s adaptation of David Mitchell’s Cloud Atlas novel.
Tom Tykwer and The Wachowski will try to push over 1000 years of human misery into 164 minutes of film. Personally I can’t wait to see the two chapters (if they follow the novel) portraying the future of mankind.

Cloud Atlas will open in October 2012.
Synopsis:

An exploration of how the actions of individual lives impact one another in the past, present and future, as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero, and an act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution.

Synopsis:

The Amazing Spider-Man is the story of Peter Parker (Garfield), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Sheen) and Aunt May (Field). Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. Peter is also finding his way with his first high school crush, Gwen Stacy (Stone), and together, they struggle with love, commitment, and secrets. As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents’ disappearance – leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr. Curt Connors (Ifans), his father’s former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors’ alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero.

Batte Royale & Battle Royale: Requiem on US Blu-ray Disc

I already added these two discs some time ago to the Asian Blu-ray Guide database, but since the great cover artwork has only been revealed some days ago, I thought I should mention the upcoming US Blu-ray Disc releases of Battle Royale here as well.
Anchor Bay will release two edition of Kinji Fukasaku’s cult hit Battle Royale on March 20th. The single-disc regular edition comes with the director’s cut version of the first film while the Complete Collection will include both versions of Battle Royale, the director’s cut of Battle Royale: Requiem plus several bonus features on four discs.
The converted 3D version of the original film is still only available in Japan and Germany withouth English subtitles…
