High-Rise trailer: Hiddleston Ascends into Madness

Tom Hiddleston’s sanity and British politeness are pushed to the limit in the JG Ballard novel adaptation. Watch the High-Rise trailer below.


We still have a whole to wait before we see Tom Hiddleston don his stenston for the Hank Williams biopic I Saw the Light. Fortunately we have another Hiddleston project to keep us busy this summer. No, not Captain America: Civil War. It’s Ben Wheatley’s High-Rise, and we just so happens to have a High-Rise trailer, courtesy of Collider.com.

We’ve known about the adaptation of JG Ballard‘s acclaimed Sci-fi novel for some time now, but this is our first look at some proper footage. Hiddleston plays reclusive doctor Robert Laing, who’s sought out anonymity in an impossibly enormous High-rise. All his needs are met by the services and facilities within the building, but all is not well as the classes start to clash.

Luke Evans also appears in the High-Rise trailer as a lower-level apartment owner who’s had enough of the richer upper floor crowd living the high life (contains no trace of puns). Also starring is The League of Gentlemen‘s Reece Shearsmith as a tenant who seems all to aware of the emotional turmoil masked by the lavishness of the building. Not to mention Jeremy Irons as the eccentric architect who built the High-rise and knows all its ins and outs.

From the look of High-Rise trailer it seems like the film has no problem holding on to the seventies setting of the novel. Even so, there looks to be all manner of weird and wonderful fashions in the building, so it’ll be a lot of fun seeing those aesthetics hash it out. It goes without saying that this should be a top pick for British cinema this year.

High-Rise hits theatres March 17th. Watch this space for all the latest High-Rise movie news.

It’s the Super Bowl Trailers Bonanza!

Deadpool, The Jungle Book and X-Men: Apocalypse are just a few of the Super Bowl trailers that aired during the big game. Watch them all below.

There is no reason not to be excited about the Super Bowl. It doesn’t matter if you hate American football or half-time shows or large groups of people wearing matching outfits. That’s only a tiny fraction of what makes the Super Bowl great. A much larger fraction off what makes the Super Bowl great is the Super Bowl trailers! This year saw a stupendous ten big budget movies getting the Super Bowl trailer treatment. Tat doesn’t even include the TV spots for Deadpool, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Coca Cola’s lavish Marvel-powered ad.

So what are you waiting for? Get to buffering cos you definitely don’t want to miss these! Let’s start wiiiith:

Deadpool TV Spot

Ok, it’s called a TV spot, but really it’s a trailer. It’s just hard to tell because Ryan Reynolds’ Merc with a Mouth is constantly breaking the fourth wall and talking to the audience. I’d get used to that if I were you. Watch out for a few new snippets of footage but mostly just enjoy the banter.

Captain America: Civil War

A lot of people were probably hoping to see a bit more of the upcoming Marvel clash of titans, but this 30 second trailer still packs a lot in. Check out Tony Stark’s quick fire Iron Man gauntlet and the full team shots at the end. Delicious… Here’s the first Civil War trailer.

Jason Bourne

All we had to go on was a photo of a lean, mean Matt Damon bare-knuckle boxing. Now we’ve got a full half-minute of footage. It definitely looks like Damon is bringing the grit after his time on Mars in The Martian. How will the latest in the Bourne franchise measure up?

X-Men: Apocalypse

“Let’s go to war”. They picked a good line to sneak into this Super Bowl trailer. The latest footage gives us a better idea of the scope of destruction we can expect, what with the hundreds of missiles firing and all. We’ve already seen Apocalypse increase in size, though. Can you show us anything else he can do?

The Secret Life of Pets

Let’s take a breather from the action and see something a little more relaxed. The latest animated venture from the folks behind Despicable Me looks like it’s got some solid laughs. Still, not even a whiff of a plot to speak of in this trailer.

The Jungle Book

While we’re on the subject of animals, how’s this for a feral treat? Another full length trailer for Jon Favreau‘s The Jungle Book. Not only that, but we finally get to hear Bill Murray, Idris Elba, Ben Kingsley and Christopher Walken lend their voices to the animal characters. A bit more light-hearted than the last trailer, as well.

10 Cloverfield Lane

If you haven’t seen anything about JJ Abrams‘ spiritual sequel to Cloverfield, this is as good a place as any to start. John Goodman acting screwy in a bunker while all hell breaks loose on the surface? I’m sorry but what’s not to like?

Turkish Airlines Batman v Superman TV Spots

We’ve been a bit overloaded with Batman v Superman footage especially with the last spoiler-filled trailer. But these Turkish Airline spots promoting Gotham and Metropolis as must-visit destinations are pretty fantastic.

Gods of Egypt

It’s Clash of the Titans meets 300 but probably not quite as good. Gods of Egypt gets a slightly longer trailer but still fiils it to bursting with luscious CGI and badass monsters. Ok it’s not an Oscar nominee, but still looks like a lot of fun.

Eddie the Eagle

A nice bit of English underdog-ness to cut through all this American action. Taron Egerton play the optimistic ski-jumper and stars alongside Hugh Jackman. Turn down your brightness when you watch this – the 80’s colour palette is intense.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows

Rule 1 of Nina Turtles Club: Don’t take anything seriously. The trailers for Michael Bay’s reptilian sequel have been following this rule very well so far. A lot of new footage in this one – watch out for our first good look at Krang.

Independence Day: Resurgence

The final of our Super Bowl trailers. There’s a fantastic amount of destruction this time around, including an alien craft vs air force dog fight. Not to mention Jeff Goldblum looking as distinguished as ever.

No a bad set of Super Bowl Trailers. Do yourself a favour and watch them all again. Al of them!
