Although the view and the facilities are tough to beat, Tom Hiddleston finds in the new trailer for "High-Rise" that some of the neighbors may leave something to be desired.
Based on J.G. Ballard’s 1975 dystopian novel about class warfare within a closed-off community, director Ben Wheatley’s darkly satirical thriller 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.
“High-Rise” opens March 18 in the United Kingdom and later this year in the United States.
