See Hugo Weaving as a woman and a Korean man in Cloud Atlas

Warner Bros has released images of Hugo Weaving in Lana and Andy Wachowski‘s collaboration with Tom TykwerCloud Atlasgiving us a clear indication of the race and gender swapping being undertaken by the entire cast.

These pictures shows Weaving as a female nurse, a Korean man, a decrepit old creep, and a red-head.

OK, that last one isn’t as shocking as the others. But still!

The movie, based on David Mitchell’s sprawling novel, also stars Tom Hanks,Susan SarandonHalle BerryJim SturgessHugh GrantJim Broadbent; each playing multiple characters across several stories that span a thousand years.

We must admit, without having seen the film or read the book, the plot is a little beyond our grasp. We’ll just point you in the direction of the stunning trailer instead.

Cloud Atlas makes its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival in September before opening wide in the United States on October 26th, 2012. An Australian release will hopefully follow.
