HIGH RISE: Watch The Full Theatrical Trailer For Wheatley's Latest
Tom Hiddleston and Luke Evans anchor the cast of High Rise, the Ben Wheatley adaptation of JG Ballard's novel. And while the cast may have gotten much higher profile than the norm for Wheatley the filmmakers underlying anarchic spirit remains very much intact.

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.....
With the UK theatrical release coming March 18th the full theatrical trailer has now arrived and is looking very compelling, indeed. Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller and Elisabeth Moss also star. Check out the trailer below.

Looks Good; Dystopian Good.

I only Hope that that March 18th means, WIDE release -- as opposed to only NYC, Chicago, KC, and Los Angeles.

March 18 is the UK release. I'm not sure about the US.

Saw the film at the Rotterdam Film Festival and enjoyed it a lot. But don't go in expecting a straight thriller or you'll be in for a (nasty) surprise.
Also, the soundtrack features an Abba cover by Portishead which is utterly magnificent.

And apparently that track was only licensed for exclusive use in the film so any sort of release is looking unlikely. Gotta see the movie to hear it ...

Ard VijnFebruary 9, 2016 11:04 AM

Crap. Ah well, that's one more reason to buy the Blu-ray I guess...

Had to stop it midway, don't want to spoil anything...been looking forward to this one for a lonng time now.

It really is bleak and incredible. Absolutely nails Ballard.
