"Cloud Atlas," the pricey and sprawling adventure tale from Lana and Andy Wachowskis, has surpassed its North American haul at the Chinese box office.
As of Thursday, "Cloud Atlas" had taken in $28.6 million with just a few days left in its run in Chin more
Cloud Atlas is a huge, sprawling novel, so it wasn't much of a surprise that the movie version clocked in at 172 minutes — but Chinese audiences will get a much tighter version of the film, lasting just 137 minutes. Unfortunately, thanks to state censors more
