A French red-band trailer has arrived for “High-Rise,” revealing new footage from director Ben Wheatley’s darkly satirical thriller.
Based on J.G. Ballard’s 1975 dystopian novel about class warfare within a closed-off community, the film follows Tom Hiddleston’s Dr. Robert Laing as he moves into a luxury tower, where he soon discovers complex loyalties within a building that is itself separated by class, based on wealth and status. Soon, a dangerous social situation develops, and the high-rise fragments into violent tribes.
Also starring Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans and Elisabeth Moss, “High-Rise” will be available April 28 on Demand, Amazon on Demand and iTunes ahead of a May 13 theatrical release.
