The final High-Rise trailer is a lofty success

Ben Wheatley's HIGH-RISE is prepping for its UK release (on March 18th), so the final trailer has dropped. In it, you get a much clearer sense of what the film is about, but enough about that. The score in this trailer is insane. It's like Disasterpeace and John Carpenter had a baby with a keytar and I'm so ready to purchase the soundtrack album on iTunes.

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.

This upstairs-downstairs story sounds like a vertical SNOWPIERCER taking place in the building from POLTERGEIST III, and I couldn't be more excited. HIGH-RISE will hit limited American theaters on May 13, 2016.
