"Matrix" directors Lana and Andy Wachowski, along with "Run Lola Run" filmmaker Tom Tykwer, have crafted a big, tasty slice of WTF pie in the form of their new movie epic "Cloud Atlas." The film breaks boundaries both in its narrative (interweaving six separate stories of different genres) and through its performers (the actors play multiple roles of different age, race and gender), all the while somehow remaining not just coherent but wildly entertaining. Who'd a thunk it?

Death Eaters and wizards are finally laying down their swords, thanks to an unlikely common ground: the mail.
The "Harry Potter" movies may have come to an end, but fans of the franchise may be able to ease their heartache with the release of a new movie starring some of the series' most recognizable faces -- and voices.
When "Harry Potter" fans head to the theater this weekend to check out "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2," they'll no doubt be worrying about minor details like, you know, Voldemort trying to kill Harry, the Death Eaters taking over the wizarding world and basically the end of all things.
But some movie buffs will be focused on another amazing aspect of the film: all those incredible British thespians (and a couple Irishmen and Scots). Get More »
