High Rise Teaser Trailer

Join us. And watch this informational video on the High Rise building, where you will find luxury around every corner. StudioCanal has debuted a brilliant new teaser trailer for Ben Wheatley's High Rise, the film adapted from J.G. Ballard's novel about the structure of a capitalistic society found within one high rise apartment building. Tom Hiddleston stars as the man who runs the whole thing. The cast includes Luke Evans, Sienna Miller, Jeremy Irons, James Purefoy, Elisabeth Moss, and Keeley Hawes. We ran two strong reviews for this film from festivals earlier in the year, and I'm already looking forward to seeing it. This teaser has me even more intrigued. Love this introduction, and the alluring vibe of everything else.

Here's the first official teaser trailer for Ben Wheatley's High-Rise, direct from StudioCanal's YouTube:

High Rise Poster

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 this year. Magnolia Pictures will release in 2016 in the US, stay tuned.

This might be a Ben Wheatley film worth watching - Kill List was disappointing, Field in England was a mess... This looks promising tho'

Love Ben Wheatley, he just keeps getting better and better. Been waiting on this one for awhile and this teaser certainly makes it look like it's been worth the wait.

Damn that's an intriguing trailer. The cinematography is superb; even has a Kubrickian/Shining feel to it...

I've only seen Kill List, and that was a long time ago, but I absolutely loved it. Think I'll have a Wheatley-marathon before this comes out. The guy seems to have something.

I'l watch it for a Ballard. That guy wrote interesting books. Sadly, I haven't still read them all ...

I will see this for what Wheatley has done in the past. Trust in Wheatley.
