High Rise Trailer

From director Ben Wheatley comes an adaptation of J.G. Ballard’s trippy novel High Rise. The film stars Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons, Luke Evans, Sienna Miller, Elizabeth Moss and James Purefoy.

The trailer doesn’t give away much. The first half feels like you’re watching an ad for a luxurious apartment block, equipped with the latest designer furniture and technology – a yuppie’s dream . But things then escalate into a slowly unwinding chaos.

The synopsis reads: When a class war erupts inside a luxurious apartment block, modern elevators become violent battlegrounds and cocktail parties degenerate into marauding attacks on “enemy” floors. In this visionary tale, human society slips into violent reverse as once-peaceful residents, driven by primal urges, re-create a world ruled by the laws of the jungle.

The film will hit theaters in March.
