Ben Wheatley"s High-Rise (2015) movie trailer features Tom Hiddleston narrating, very well, enticing viewers to join him at the High-Rise. This film is Ben Wheatley"s film adaptation of J.G. Ballard"s thought-provoking 1975 novel, High-Rise. Magnet Releasing secured the US rights with a theatrical release date sometime in (2016) pending. Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons, and Sienna Miller star in High-Rise.
From the previous press release: The film, starring Tom Hiddleston (THE AVENGERS, CRIMSON PEAK), Jeremy Irons (BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE), Sienna Miller (AMERICAN SNIPER), Luke Evans (DRACULA UNTOLD) and Elizabeth Moss (MAD MEN), chronicles the savage breakdown of social order inside a giant residential apartment block. Written by Amy Jump based on J.G. Ballard"s seminal 1975 sci-fi novel, HIGH-RISE world-premiered at the (2015) Toronto International Film Festival.
HIGH-RISE stars Hiddleston as Dr. Robert Laing, the newest resident of a luxurious apartment in a high-tech concrete skyscraper whose lofty location places him amongst the upper class. Laing quickly settles into high society life and meets the building"s eccentric tenants: Charlotte (Miller), his upstairs neighbor and bohemian single mother; Wilder (Evans), a charismatic documentarian who lives with his pregnant wife Helen (Moss); and Mr. Royal (Irons), the enigmatic architect who designed the building. Life seems like paradise to the solitude-seeking Laing. But as power outages become more frequent and building flaws emerge, particularly on the lower floors, the regimented social strata begins to crumble and the building becomes a battlefield in a literal class war.
Magnet, who distributed Wheatley"s first film, DOWN TERRACE, is planning a 2016 theatrical release.
