We've only just seen the first trailer, but already the buzz for 'Cloud Atlas' is increasing, with some even comparing its possible impact to that of 2010's 'Inception', which wowed audiences and critics with its ambition.
Those behind the production also have an incredible film making pedigree, with Lana and Andy Wachowski, the duo behind 'The Matrix' and Tom Tykwer, director of cult classic 'Run Lola Run' all on board.
The David Mitchell novel it's based on is certainly pretty unique, consisting of six stories that take the reader from the South Pacific of the 19th Century to a post-apocalyptic future.
It's certainly full of stars, with Tom Hanks, Halle Berry and a returning Hugh Grant giving the movie heavyweight Hollywood appeal. Just as intriguing perhaps is the collection of British actors, including Jim Broadbent and 'Skyfall's' Ben Whishaw.
The six minute long trailer has also got tongues wagging, not only is this extraordinarily long for an early peek at a film, but it also shows the film's scope. Taking in a Victorian ship on the high seas, rural English scenes, one scene where a confused Jim Broadbent is attacked by menacing criminals, and a bizarre future world with android like humans.
The central theme appears to be the interconnectedness of human life, with a portentous Tom Hanks declaring: "Fear, belief, love, phenomena that determine the course of our lives, these forces begin long before we are born and continue after we perish."
