Last month the first international trailer for HIGH RISE was released, and now four new stills from the upcoming movie have landed online, as well as an elongated poster. The big screen adaptation of the J.G Ballard novel of the same name comes from A FIELD IN ENGLAND and KILL LIST director Ben Wheatley, and stars Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans and Elisabeth Moss.

Chris Bumbray gave the film an 8/10 after seeing it at TIFF 2015, and I've seen more than a few people describe it as "SNOWPIERCER in a building," which sounds just fine to me. HIGH RISE doesn't have a U.S. release date yet, but it has been scheduled to open in the U.K. on March 18, 2016.

Take a look:

Book description from Amazon:

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. In this visionary tale, human society slips into violent reverse as once-peaceful residents, driven by primal urges, re-create a world ruled by the laws of the jungle.

On the lighter side of things, below you'll find a new still from Disney's THE JUNGLE BOOK and the first of three posters that are set to drop in the very near future. Directed Jon Favreau, the CGI-live-action remake of the 1967 animated film stars Neel Sethi as Mowgli, Bill Murray as Baloo, Ben Kingsley as Bagheera, Scarlett Johansson as Kaa and Christopher Walken as King Louie, and will be in theaters on April 15, 2016.

My fear is that High Rise will only be released on Direct to Video in the US

Agree both on what Roy Batty and Netforce wrote!
Nice poster for High Rise, and the Jungle Book looks better than the previous reincarnations of Disney classics.

Never thought I would say this but...

This is one Disney live adaptation I'm actually looking forward to. The utilization of CGI doesn't look as wacky or poorly done as Alice in Wonderland or Maleficent did. In a lot of ways, it reminds me of Life of Pi.

Really? I'm actually not impressed with what I've seen so far in the trailers and the posters look like Jumanji level FX. I'll still see it though because I love Jon Favreau
