Magnolia Pictures and Magnet Releasing have debuted a new trailer for Ben Wheatley’s darkly satirical thriller “High-Rise” because, well, there’s no such thing as too much Tom Hiddleston. Oh, and there’s also a new poster.
Based on J.G. Ballard’s 1975 dystopian novel about class warfare within a closed-off community, the film follows 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.
