In the new trailer for the upcoming film High-Rise, which was adapted from the 1975 J.G. Ballard novel of the same name, presents a luxury skyscraper that houses so many building amenities that residents never really have to leave. Which is not always a good thing.
1975. Two miles west of London, Dr. Robert Laing (Tom Hiddleston) moves into his new apartment seeking soulless anonymity, only to find that the building’s residents have no intention of leaving him alone. Resigned to the complex social dynamics unfolding around him, Laing bites the bullet and becomes neighbourly.
