It's all fun and games until somebody takes a dive in this High-Rise clip

High-Rise Tom Hiddleston High Rise Ben Wheatley

Ben Wheatley's HIGH-RISE has already been one of our most anticipated flicks of the summer, but this new clip might just be the straw that broke the back of my personal enthusiasm. A surrealistic nightmare of a party with scalpel-sharp sound design, this trippy, stylistic scene is a horrific, beautiful moment in a film that will certainly defy expectations. Check out the clip, entitled "Suicide," below.

The film stars Tom Hiddleston as 

Dr. Robert Laing, the newest resident of a luxurious apartment in a high-tech concrete skyscraper whose lofty location places him amongst the upper class. Laing quickly settles into high society life and meets the building’s eccentric tenants: Charlotte (Sienna Miller), his upstairs neighbor and bohemian single mother; Wilder (Luke Evans), a charismatic documentarian who lives with his pregnant wife Helen (Elisabeth Moss); and Mr. Royal (Jeremy Irons), the enigmatic architect who designed the building.

Life seems like paradise to the solitude-seeking Laing. But as power outages become more frequent and building flaws emerge, particularly on the lower floors, the regimented social strata begins to crumble and the building becomes a battlefield in a literal class war.

HIGH-RISE dropped onto VOD yesterday and is set to hit limited American theaters on May 13, 2016.
