Magnolia Pictures has released a new trailer for Ben Wheatley's crazy new thriller, High-Rise. The film is adapted from J.G. Ballard's classic novel, and stars Tom Hiddleston as Dr. Robert Laing, along with Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans, Elisabeth Moss, James Purefoy, and Sienna Guillory. This is another one of those wild types of "psycho" thrillers that I always seem to enjoy and I can't wait to check it out in theaters this May! Check out the trippy trailer plus the official synopsis below. Let us know what you think and sound off in the comments with your thoughts.
Here's the official synopsis:
HIGH-RISE stars Hiddleston as Dr. Robert Laing, the newest resident of a luxurious apartmentin 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. HIGH-RISE is the latest film by cult British director Ben Wheatley (Kill List, A Field in England), an ambitious adaptation of the J.G. Ballard novel of the same name.
High-Rise is set to hit iTUNES on April 28th, and theaters everywhere on May 13th.
