Things get dangerous for Tom Hiddleston in new High-Rise trailer

Ben Wheatley, director of such films as KILL LIST, SIGHTSEERS, and A FIELD IN ENGLAND appears to have brought an amazing visual style to his adaptation of the 1975 J.G. Ballard novel HIGH-RISE, a film that doesn't yet have a release date set in the United States but will be reaching cinema screens in the United Kingdom on March 18th.

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.

With its UK release getting very close, a new trailer for HIGH-RISE has made its way online to dazzle us with a look at what seems like it could be quite an awesome movie:
