Lana, who first announced her transition from Larry nearly a decade ago, directed and wrote the movie with Tykwer and Andy based on David Mitchell's acclaimed novel.

Lana, 47, appears in pink dreadlocks and a grey dress to talk up the film in a video released by Warner Bros. that was posted on the movie's iTunes Movies Trailer page Thursday alongside the "Cloud Atlas" trailer.

"Cloud Atlas" weaves together six disparate story threads, which run from a South Pacific sea voyage during the 19th century to America in the 1970s to a post-apocalyptic wasteland.
