It's not often you hear of a 169-year-old movie star, but Hollywood blockbuster Cloud Atlas sees Edinburgh’s Scott Monument take centre stage.

The movie adaptation of David Mitchell’s bestselling book, which stars Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugo Weaving, Ben Whishaw and James D’Arcy, went on general release in the UK yesterday, and has already grossed more than $100 million worldwide.

The film is set to showcase one of the city’s most striking attractions and is also expected to attract other filmmakers to the Capital.
