The event was also attended by co-directors Andy WACHOWSKI, Lana WACHOWSKI and Tim TYKWER along with Tom HANKS, Halle BERRY, Hugh GRANT, Hugo WEAVING and Susan SARANDON. Cloud Atlas is based on a novel by David MITCHELL and has six different interwoven plotlines. One of the many reasons it has drawn media attention is that it is the first Hollywood film for BAE.
