"How's the high life?" "Prone to fits of mania, narcissism, and power failure." Studiocanal UK has debuted a full-length trailer for Ben Wheatley's film High-Rise, starring Tom Hiddleston as one of the newest residents of the top floor of a massive high rise complex that represents social classes. Jeremy Irons plays the man at the very top, joined by a cast including Luke Evans, Sienna Miller, Elisabeth Moss, James Purefoy, Keeley Hawes and Sienna Guillory. This is looking like the kind of dark, devious, dastardly film I'm anxious to see right now. Lots of complex ideas about society and power crammed into one crazy story - read Jeremy's review or Amanda's review. Hopefully this will be hitting US theaters soon, too. Enjoy!

Here's the new full-length UK trailer for Ben Wheatley's High-Rise, direct from Studiocanal's YouTube:

For more updates on High-Rise, follow the film here: @HighRise_movie. It opens in the UK this spring.

High-Rise is directed by British filmmaker Ben Wheatley (Down Terrace, Kill List, Sightseers, A Field in England), from legendary producer Jeremy Thomas (The Last Emperor, Sexy Beast, A Dangerous Method, 13 Assassins, Kon-Tiki, Only Lovers Left Alive), and written by Amy Jump (Kill List, A Field in England). It's based on J.G. Ballard's acclaimed 1975 novel of the same name: "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." The film first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, and also played London and Fantastic Fest last year. Magnolia Pictures will release sometime in 2016 here in the US.

    I like Ballard's work. And love Tom Hiddleston in this. The pace is ok. So, what's there not to like about it?
