Tom Hiddleston invites you to come stay at the “High-Rise,” which has “40 floors of luxury apartments filled with every modern convenience.”
The first teaser/trailer for the film acts as sort of a promotional video for the complex, with Hiddleston’s voice enticing the viewer with everything the building has to offer. A fully-stocked supermarket, a gym, a swimming pool, a spa, and even a school are featured in this luxurious apartment high-rise. “There is almost no reason to leave,” and it almost seems perfect.
“Ever wanted something more?” He says. “Ever thought, there could be a better way to live free from the shackles of the old tired world?”
Based on the 1975 novel by J.G. Ballard, “High-Rise” takes a darkly comic look at class warfare within a luxury apartment building.
Magnolia Pictures acquired the film just last week.
