The Wachowskis' Cloud Atlas Gets A Release Date

Cloud atlas release date

It's been a while since we've seen any movies directed by the duo behind The Matrix, but sci-fi fans will be happy to hear that The Wachowski's next film will hit theaters this fall.

Cloud Atlas, an adaptation of David Mitchell's critically acclaimed novel, will be released domestically on October 26.

Halle Berry stars alongside Tom Hanks, Hugh Grant and Agent Smith himself, Hugo Weaving.

The film consists of six different stories set in a different time and place, which ultimately connect. Even better than the unique plot will be seeing the A-list actors portray multiple roles as the film progresses through the ages.

How U feelin' about this one??

After much speculation, it's been confirmed!

Captain America has his nemesis!

British actor Hugo Weaving will be taking the villainous role as The Red Skull in the film adaptation of Captain America: The First Avenger! Chris Evans and Hayley Atwell are so far the only other actors confirmed for the project, and Joe Johnston has taken the helm as director.

We think he's going to seriously bring it! He kicked ass in V For Vendetta and The Lord of the Rings!

Thoughts??

But we though John Krasinski had it in the bag!

Sources have confirmed that Ryan Phillippe is the latest actor to be considered for the lead role in The First Avenger: Captain America.

Hugo Weaving has been cast as the villain Red Skull and JKras has reportedly shot a screen test with other Marvel Universe actors, but no deal has been made as of yet.

Are U rooting for John or Ryan to take on the character?
