‘When a class war erupts inside a luxurious apartment block, modern elevators become violent battlegrounds and cocktail parties degenerate into marauding attacks on “enemy” floors. In this visionary tale, human society slips into violent reverse as once-peaceful residents, driven by primal urges, re-create a world ruled by the laws of the jungle.’ – cover blurb, High-Rise, by J.G. Ballard.
High-Rise has been adapted for film by writer Amy Jump and director Ben Wheatley and stars Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans, Elizabeth Moss and James Purefoy.
A new trailer suggests that book’s cover blurb is something of an understatement. Check it out after the break. High-Rise open in the UK on March 3rd. US dates are to be determined.
Ben Wheatley (KIll List, Doctor Who) has adapted J.G. Ballard’s dystopian classic, High-Rise – starring Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans, Elizabeth Moss and James Purefy.
A blurb from the novel reads, ‘When a class war erupts inside a luxurious apartment block, modern elevators become violent battlegrounds and cocktail parties degenerate into marauding attacks on “enemy” floors. In this visionary tale, human society slips into violent reverse as once-peaceful residents, driven by primal urges, re-create a world ruled by the laws of the jungle.’
The first teaser is a promo for the high-rise in question, narrated by Hiddleston. Check it out after the jump. High-Rise opens in the UK on March 18, 2016. U.S. dates to be determined.
Early clips from I Saw the Light show how well Tom Hiddleston has inhabited the character of country & western legend Hank Williams.
Sony Pictures Classics has released a new poster for I Saw the Light that emphasizes the transformation in a classic Hank pose. Check it out after the jump. I Saw the Light premieres on March 25, 2016.
Hank Williams is one of the most brilliant and tragic figures in the history of American music. I Saw the Light, starring Tom Hiddleston, is his story. Follow the jump to view the new trailer. I Saw the Light premieres on March 25, 2016.
Crimson Peak is Guillermo Del Toro’s passion project – the one he has worked on for years (as many as his H.P. Lovecraft adaptation? Probably). It’s a classic ghost story set in a big old mansion in which there are areas that ‘are not safe.’
The cast – which is pretty awesome – includes Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain and Charlie Hunnam. Legendary Pictures has released a new trailer that you can see immediately following the jump.
Even though it is darker than Thor’s introductory movie, Thor: The Dark World is fun – largely because Thor – even more than Captain America – is Marvel’s most irony-free character. That and because Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston are such perfectly cast brothers.
Remember that exchange in the the first Thor: The Dark World trailer where Thor asks Loki for help? Well, there’s more to that scene than that brief exchange. Follow the jump to check out more of that conversation. Talk about a love/hate relationship!
Earlier this week, Joss Whedon, Samuel L. Jackson, Clark gregg and Tom Hiddleston took part in a Global Fan Chat to answer fan questions about The Avengers [opening May4, 2012]. Here is a transcript of that chat. Enjoy.
One of the biggest movies of the year – in terms of grand, epic fun – Thor gets a DVD release that provides one thing I always enjoy [a terrific commentary track by director Kenneth Branagh] but lacks the one thing I was most hoping to see: a promised short feature built around S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Coulson. Turns out that, contrary to promises made, it’s only available on the Blu-ray.
Still, even without it, the DVD release for Thor is still great fun.
