Studiocanal released the international trailer for the thriller High-Rise, starring Tom Hiddleston. The film is an adaptation of J.G. Ballard’s novel, directed by Ben Wheatley.
The last time I felt goosebumps like that was after I saw the trailer for Drive. There is something about 70s computer music that is calming and uneasy all at the same time.
1975. Two miles west of London, Dr. Robert Laing moves into his new apartment seeking soulless anonymity, only to find that the building’s residents have no intention of leaving him alone. Resigned to the complex social dynamics unfolding around him, Laing bites the bullet and becomes neighbourly. As he struggles to establish his position, Laing’s good manners and sanity disintegrate along with the building. The lights go out and the lifts fail but the party goes on. People are the problem. Booze is the currency. Sex is the panacea. Only much later, as he sits on his balcony eating the architect’s dog, does Dr. Robert Laing finally feel at home…..
High-Rise stars Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans, and Elisabeth Moss.
The film will be available overseas on March 18 and then in the US on April 28.
