"Cloud Atlas," the sprawling science fiction epic from the makers of "The Matrix" trilogy, will unfold on IMAX screens, Warner Bros. said Monday. The film, which features Tom Hanks in a hideous '70s-era comb over and beige turtleneck sweater, as well as Hugo Weaving in drag, tells several interwoven stories of love, hope and rebellion across many eras. It co-stars Halle Berry and Hugh Grant and was directed by the Wachowskis ("The Matrix") and Tom Tykwer ("Run Lola Run").
"Cloud Atlas" will be digitally re-mastered for IMAX screens and released in the format on select North American screens on Oct. 26, 2012.

The special screening of the black-and-white, stop-motion animated film will include a Q&A with Oscar winner Martin Landau, who voices Vincent Price-inspired science teacher Mr. Rzykruski, moderated by Hero Complex contributor Rebecca Keegan.
A remake of Burton’s 1984 short film of the same name, “Frankenweenie” is about a boy named Victor who loses his dog and deploys science to bring the beloved canine back to life. The film features the voices of Martin Short, Catherine O’Hara, Winona Ryder and Landau, in his first collaboration with Burton since 1994′s “Ed Wood.” (Check back soon for an in-depth interview with Burton about the film.)
