Nine years after giving us “The Matrix” trilogy, the Wachowski siblings return in mind-bending fashion with “Cloud Atlas,” a sprawling historical/science fiction tale based on the award-winning novel by David Mitchell.
Starring Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jim Sturgess and Hugo Weaving, “Cloud Atlas,” bowing October 26, is an examination of how the actions of individual lives impact one another in the past, present and future.
Honestly, I can’t remember the last time I watched a five-minute trailer for a major studio pic; then again, “Cloud Atlas” is so vast and ambitious in nature, it would be impossible for Warner Bros. to tease in 60 seconds. Having said that, I still have no clue what this movie is about (!), which isn't necessarily a bad thing.
Produced by Philip Lee and Uwe Schott, “Cloud Atlas” premieres at the Toronto Film Festival.
Victims of Friday’s deadly rampage at a midnight screening of "The Dark Knight Rises" were visited by none other than Batman, himself, on Tuesday.
Christian Bale, who arrived mid-morning at the Medical Center of Aurora, posed for photos with hospital staff and shooting victims for more than two-and-a-half hours, according to the Denver Post.
A Warner Bros. representative told the newspaper that Bale was in Colorado representing himself, not the studio.

Bale’s visit follows an aggressive online campaign to get Batman to visit the devastated community. Using the hashtag #BaleOutAurora, Twitter and other social media outlets pleaded with the Oscar-winner after 71 people were shot during Friday's "Dark Knight Rises" screening.
Bale specifically asked that media not be notified of his trip.
Remember when Joaquin Phoenix 'retired' from acting? Yeah, me neither.
Today, the Weinstein Company released the first full-length trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson's religious drama "The Master" and holy cow, does Phoenix look creepy.
Set in 1952, "The Master," co-starring Philip Seymour Hoffman and Amy Adams, tells the story of a drifter who develops a relationship with the charismatic leader of a faith-based organization. Drama is said to be loosely based on the life of Scientology leader L. Ron Hubbard, but it's Phoenix who takes center stage here.
And while it's far too early to tell, I wouldn't be surprised to see Joaquin go head-to-head (or tux-to-tux?) with Daniel Day Lewis this awards season. Coincidentally, Lewis ("Lincoln) also happens to be PTA's last tortured actor ("There Will Be Blood") before taking home the Oscar in 2008.
Scored by Johnny Greenwood of Radiohead, "The Master" opens in limited release October 12, 2012.
The Wizard of Oz is back--sort of.
Moments after Disney wrapped its Comic-Con presentation for “Oz, the Great and Powerful,” the studio released a dazzling first-look at Sam Raimi's prequel to “The Wizard of Oz" (see below).
Based on the 1939 classic film, “Oz, the Great and Powerful” stars James Franco, Mila Kunis and Michelle Williams and tells the story of a circus wrangler who is transported via tornado to the mysterious land of Oz, where he is mistaken for an all-knowing Wizard.
Joe Roth (“Alice in Wonderland”) produced the film while Mitchell Kapner and David Lindsay-Abaire penned the script.
"Oz" also marks the first helming vehicle for Raimi since "Drag Me to Hell." Raimi was supposed to direct the fourth Spider-Man movie before Sony decided to reboot the series.
“Oz, the Great and Powerful,” shot last year in Michigan, opens wide March 8, 2013.
Warner Bros. has released a second trailer for the star-studded "Gangster Squad." Studio will presumably tout the Sean Penn/Ryan Gosling pic in front of "The Dark Knight Rises" on July 20. Directed by Ruben Fleischer ("Zombieland"), "Gangster Squad" opens September 7, 2012.
