Marina Antunes [Celluloid 01.07.16] United Kingdom scifi cult thriller

I love this new trailer for Ben Wheatley's High-Rise so much, I'm almost convinced that maybe I took the funny pill the night I watched and was underwhelmed by the movie when I saw it at VIFF (though rochefort felt very differently about it). Maybe it was a case of burnout? I'm grasping at straws here but this trailer (along with the first) sets this movie up as the greatest thing to look forward to in 2016.

I mean, there are the amazing visuals, the great cast, the fantastic looking glimpses at what the encapsulated fall of society looks like, the brilliant music; it all screams win which leads me to think I might have to give this one a second go when it eventually opens.

Or maybe whoever cut this trailer deserves an award.

Wheatley's adaptation of J.G. Ballard's classic novel stars Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons, Luke Evans, Elisabeth Moss, Sienna Miller, James Purefoy and Sienna Guillory. It opens in the UK March 18. Magnolia Pictures has not announced a US release date.
