Now this is how you craft a great trailer. The first look at Ben Wheatley’s upcoming film sets the scene and general tone, while letting in glimpses of the madness that is to come. Having recently had the opportunity to see the film, I can safely say that there are no spoilers in this teaser. High-Rise is based on the 1975 novel by J.G. Ballard, and stars Tom Hiddleston as a new tenant in a luxury high-rise that has been segregated according to class. The ensuing tension between the poor, the middle class and the rich leads to absolute chaos. It has played a few film festivals over the last few months, and the reception has been divisive. Rest assured, you’re going to love this movie, or hate it, but you’ll see nothing else like it.
Watch the official trailer below:
High-Rise is currently due to be released on March 18th, 2016 in the UK, with a U.S. release sometime after that.
