The first trailer for the sci-fi film "Cloud Atlas" was released yesterday, Mtime.com reports.

The six-minute trailer shows glimpses of the lead actors against the backdrop of the Industrial Age at the end of 19th century and a post-apocalyptic future.

It is the first time that Chinese actress Zhou Xun has been seen in the film's promotional materials.

"Cloud Atlas" is adapted from British writer David Mitchell's popular novel of the same name, which is considered the most imaginative and inadaptable story ever written.

Several film production companies from Germany and the Chinese company Dreams of the Dragon Pictures Co., Ltd. have invested in the picture.

"The Matrix" directors Lana Wachowski and Andy Wachowski and "Lola Rennt" director Tom Tykwer have co-directed the project.

The film's cast features a strong lineup, including Tom Cruise, Hugh Grant, Hugo Weaving, Ben Whishaw, Jim Broadbent, Hally Berry, Du-na Bae from South Korea and Zhou Xun and Ju Ju from China.

"Cloud Atlas" will open in North American cinemas on October 26, while Chinese audiences can expect to watch the movie during the Spring Festival slot in 2013.
