If you're not dying to see Ben Wheatley's High-Rise after this latest trailer I don't know what to tell you because this third one gives us our best look yet and the view is staggering.

Arguably Wheatley's most ambitious film to date, original author J.G. Ballard's vision and themes seem wholly intact and what a great idea to set it in the past.



Synopsis:
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...




Adapted from J.G. Ballard’s visionary novel by screenwriter Amy Jump, HIGH - RISE stars Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans and Elisabeth Moss.

High-Rise hits UK cinemas March 18th before comign to American VOD April 28 then to theaters May 13.



Recommended Release: High-Rise
