Behold the first beautiful trailer for the incredibly ambitious Cloud Atlas. Directed in teams by both Tom Tykwer and the Wachowskis, this big-screen adaptation of David Mitchell’s novel jumps from century to century, with the same actors playing different characters —
“Alfred. Gordon. Lucius. Bruce … Wayne. Names that have come to mean so much to me. Today, I’m three weeks from saying a final good-bye to these characters and their world. It’s my son’s ninth birthday. He was born as the Tumbler was being glued together in my garage from random…
This is good and bad ‘cause I’ve loved Action Comics and his Batman work, and All-Star Superman, but its good ‘cause now he can get back to doing what he does best: really weird and really trippy stories (capes don’t usually leave much room for that, though Arkham Asylum and, to an extent, A-S Superman were able to pull it off).

I think I’m becoming alcoholic. I drink almost everyday, usually a yuengling, white russian, rum&coke, straight rum, or vodka in OJ. It’s not even really to get drunk (which I usually don’t drink to do) but more when I’m working, relaxing, or relaxing with friend. But I don’t always need to drink. I just like having a nice cold beer; I’m American.
