Movie poster, High Rise
Leave the real world behind.

Based on the story by J. G. Ballard. London, 1975. A slick apartment tower rises above the Thames, the beginnings of what will soon become the world's biggest financial hub. Dominating the landscape, it is simply called the High-Rise... its address a mark of exclusivity. Its newest resident is Robert Laing (Tom Hiddleston) an ambitious young doctor utterly seduced by the lifestyle and cutting-edge technology the high-rise has to offer.

Laing meets Wilder (Luke Evans), a charismatic provocateur who introduces him to the seedy underbelly of the high-rise. The cracks in this apparently flawless society grow rapidly, and Laing is shocked at the depravity he sees.

Due for release 18 Aug 2016
