Ahead of its theatrical release in May, Magnet Releasing has dropped a new trailer for Ben Wheatley’s gripping , High-Rise. A trailer which teases stylish cocktail parties, violence, and best of all, a closer look at Tom Hiddleston as Dr. Robert Laing. The resident of a luxurious apartment in a high-tech concrete skyscraper whose lofty location places him amongst the upper class.
The unnerving tale of life in a modern tower block running out of control. Within the concealing walls of an elegant forty-storey tower block, the affluent tenants are hell-bent on an orgy of destruction. Cocktail parties degenerate into marauding attacks on ‘enemy’ floors and the once-luxurious amenities become an arena for technological mayhem…In this classic visionary tale, human society slips into violent reverse as the inhabitants of the high-rise, driven by primal urges, recreate a world ruled by the laws of the jungle.
The film was directed by Wheatley based of the J. G. Ballard’s brilliant novel of the same name. High-Rise was adapted for the screen by Amy Jump, which stars Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans, and Elizabeth Moss.
Get ready for it on May 13, 2016.
