Check out the mesmerizing trailer of High-Rise, the upcoming drama thriller movie directed by Ben Wheatley and based on J.G. Ballard’s cult novel:
Ever wanted something more? Join us at the high-rise…
“London, 1975. Robert Laing (Tom Hiddleston) is a young doctor seduced by the lifestyle in a high-rise, an isolated community, cut off from the rest of society in their luxury tower block, and its creator, the architect Anthony Royal (Jeremy Irons). Taking up residence on the twenty-fifth floor, Laing discovers a world of complex loyalties, and also strikes up a relationship with Royal’s devoted aide Charlotte (Sienna Miller). After Laing befriends Richard Wilder (Luke Evans), a documentary filmmaker relegated to the second floor who is determined to provoke the class injustices inherent in the high-rise, a dangerous social situation develops and the high-rise eventually fragments into violent tribes.”
Sounds like Tom Hiddleston is going to deliver a great performance here. I am definitely impatient to see Ben Wheatley’s take on J.G. Ballard’s novel!
Here’s an earlier teaser poster:
The film is starring Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans, Elisabeth Moss, James Purefoy, and Sienna Guillory.
The release date of High-Rise is set to March 18, 2016.
