New Trailer for Tom Hiddleston’s ‘High-Rise’

Tom Hiddleston

StudioCanal has released another new High-Rise trailer, which is all about Tom Hiddleston’s Dr. Robert Laing whose cool exterior can barely contain a creeping sense of dread.

Directed by Ben Wheatley, the adaptation of J.G. Ballard’s 1975 dystopian novel of the same name also stars Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans and Elisabeth Moss. It’s about an apartment building that is allegedly a self-contained community/utopia, and things go pear-shaped.

The film will open in the UK on March 18, and will be released in the U.S. by Magnolia later in 2016. Check out the High-Rise trailer below, along with the new poster below.

That was the movie I was thinking of. Maybe Hiddleston really does make everything better. Looks like Architectural Digest meets Inception.

Tom Hiddleston’s Dr. Robert Laing

1975. Two miles west of London, Dr. 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 elevators fail but the party goes on. People are the problem. Booze is the currency. Sex is the panacea.
