Premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival last fall, and then making stops at San Sebastian, Fantastic Fest, Zurich, and BFI London, and with Tribeca on the horizon, Ben Wheatley‘s “High-Rise” has been visiting all corners of the festival circuit. But the picture will be coming to the masses very soon, too.
Featuring a fantastic, star-studded ensemble including Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans, Elisabeth Moss, James Purefoy, Peter Ferdinando and Keeley Hawes, the adaptation of J.G. Ballard’s novel follows one man who moves into a class-divided apartment complex, only to see it collapse into chaos and anarchy. Here’s the official synopsis:
Based on J.G. Ballard’s novel of the same name, High-Rise stars Tom Hiddleston as Dr. Robert Lang, a newcomer to a recently constructed complex in which the residents are stratified by social class. But when the power goes out, the tenuous hierarchy rapidly descends into chaos.
“High-Rise” opens in the U.S., On Demand, Amazon Video and iTunes on April 28th and in theaters on May 13th. Check out the new international red band trailer below. [Comic Book Resources]
