i couldn't access those specific videos (and i've never seen The Fountain), but looked Cloud Atlas up on youtube and it looks great. the trailer didn't go into that much detail about the story itself, but it's supposed to be about reincarnation and people attempting to chase each other through time despite choices they've made (and actions of others) in the past conspiring against them...?
It actually looks interesting, plus I'm curious to see if there's any differences in approach now that it's Lana and Andy.
Haven't read the book. Maybe it's worth a read.

“Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
Speed Racer wasn't bad, actually.
The trailer made me scoff at first, but my friends dragged me to the midnight show and I was surprised at how well it worked.
Better than 90% of the Hollywood crap that is released nowadays at least.
I'd be down for a sequel, but the original was box office poison.
