Review: High-rise Effectively Proves That Humanity’s Greatest Threat Will Always Be Itself

29 April 2016 12:46 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Based on J.G. Ballard’s 1975 novel of the same name, High-Rise is the latest from filmmaker Ben Wheatley and stars Tom Hiddleston, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans, Jeremy Irons, and Elizabeth Moss. Written by Amy Jump (who collaborated with Wheatley on Kill List, Sightseers, and A Field in England), High-Rise is a fascinatingly surreal cautionary tale of how class systems effectively break down and why society will always be its own worst enemy.

Set in 1975, High-Rise follows Dr. Robert Laing (Hiddleston) as he moves into a futuristic and luxurious apartment building in which residents are ranked by their stature in life and relegated to live on the floors the building’s architect and overseer, Anthony Royal (Irons), and his aristocratic associates see fit. The poorest folks live towards the bottom, the middle class reside above them, and so forth all the way up to Royal’s insanely intricate penthouse, complete with »

How ‘High-Rise’ Director Ben Wheatley Got Tom Hiddleston, His Other Actors to Take High Risks

29 April 2016 6:45 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

For a man whose films tackle the darkness of humanity, Ben Wheatley has a reputation as one of the nicest directors around. Actors constantly praise his kindness and some of the biggest names in the business are lining up to work with him. That’s a hearty endorsement, considering what he puts his cast through in “High-Rise,” his adaptation of the 1975 J.G. Ballard novel set in an apartment building that descends into chaos and anarchy.

High-Rise” features Tom Hiddleston, Luke Evans and Jeremy Irons amongst its tenants, and manages to be both a brutal and beautiful work of art. Though made on a relatively modest budget of under $20 million, it’s a considerable leap in scale for Wheatley, whose previous films like “Kill List” and “Down Terrace” were made for well under $1 million. It is currently available on demand before hitting U.S. theaters on May 13.

Interview: Director Ben Wheatley on Working with His Cast, the Challenges of Adapting High-rise and More

28 April 2016 2:54 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Throughout his career, filmmaker Ben Wheatley has always taken chances as a storyteller, and his latest movie, High-Rise, may be his boldest and most ambitious work to date. The film stars Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans, and many more as the residents of an idyllic apartment complex that promises its inhabitants a self-sustaining existence, but only results in destruction and madness once humanity’s inherent selfish nature consumes them all. A blistering and darkly comedic social satire, High-Rise is a not-to-be-missed affair arriving on VOD April 28th and in theaters on May 13th.

Daily Dead recently had the chance to speak with Wheatley at the press day for High-Rise, and during our interview we discussed the approach to adapting J.G. Ballard’s 1975 novel, his experiences collaborating with a stellar cast, and much more.

Congrats on the film, Ben. I want to start by talking about working with »

Dark Comedy or Sick Nihilism? "The Mother" and "High-Rise"

27 April 2016 2:30 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Tribeca is over and we're almost done catching up with reviews. Here's Nathaniel on a potential Oscar submission from Estonia and a twisted thriller from the UK.

Mother

The festival described this crime comedy as Fargo-like and that's true to a degree. It takes place in a small town where everyone seems to know each other...ish. The local customs are amusing or peculiar to the outsider (namely, us). There's also a noticeable undercurrent of 'and all for a little money' despair about the human condition that tugs at both the red herrings and the true crime. A young ladies-man teacher named Lauri (Siim Maaten), something of a slacker/dreamer as he had big plans but never moved out of his parents home, has been in a coma for months following a shooting. While his long suffering mother attempts to care for him alone (the father is no help), a parade of visitors including friends, »

Ynms: Magnificent Seven, Girl on the Train, Cafe Society

23 April 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

It's a triple trailer mini breakdown. Are you a Yes, No or Maybe So on these three pictures?

Girl on the Train Trailer

Yes. Emily Blunt deserves a big hit and she's always so watchable. Also: How is Allison Janney always so perfect? It's one of the great mysteries of the universe. The supporting cast is filled with solid players: Justin Theroux, Rebecca Ferguson, Luke Evans, Lisa Kudrow.

No. Seems like the kind of picture that will be ruined before it opens with spoilers

Maybe So. Tate Taylor directed The Help which is better than people give it credit for being. Can he handle the thriller genre? That's quite a different skill set.

Magnificent Seven Trailer

Yes. Chris Pratt being adorable again. He really sells it in this trailer. Denzel is reliable... even when he isn't trying (though we always wish he would try). The other cast members get no »

Sienna Miller Is Surrounded by Handsome Men on the Red Carpet, but What Else Is New?

21 April 2016 11:50 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

In what one might expect to be a normal Wednesday evening for Sienna Miller, the actress hit the red carpet with a crop of handsome men for the premiere of her new movie, High-Rise, at the Tribeca Film Festival in NYC. Sienna posed for photos with costars Tom Hiddleston and Luke Evans and was the picture of party-girl cool in a red cutout Christopher Kane dress. Another good-looking guy on Sienna's arm for the screening was her nephew, Cristian Miller, who seemed right at home in the spotlight. The trailer for High-Rise made quite a splash when it was released earlier this year, thanks to a scene in which Tom Hiddleston goes nude. Sienna plays the role of Charlotte Melville, an aide to esteemed architect Anthony Royal (played by Jeremy Irons). The science-fiction film doesn't hit theaters until May 13 - so for now, keep reading to see Sienna's red carpet outing. »

Twists and Turns Abound in The Girl on the Train First Trailer

20 April 2016 3:38 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

A new trailer has surfaced for the thriller, based on the novel, The Girl on the Train and we're getting a big Gone Girl vibe from it in the best way possible.  Come inside to take a look!

From the trailer alone, we can tell that this movie is going to be another edge of your seat thriller. A woman (Emily Blunt) witnesses a murder from a train and suddenly she's now in question as a murder suspect.  It's very reminiscent of 2014's Gone Girl, in that there so many twists and turns you really aren't sure if she did it or not.  Not to mention, it also looks like it in the cinematography.

Although, this is just a teaser trailer.  However, if The Girl On the Train is anything like Gone Girl, we're in for another amazing film.  Not to mention, a big bump in stardom for Emily Blunt, »

Emily Blunt Is a Terrified Wreck in Haunting 'The Girl on the Train' Trailer

20 April 2016 7:39 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Paula Hawkins's bestselling novel "The Girl on the Train" -- which earned itself comparisons to "Gone Girl" -- is coming to the big screen this October with a cast of A-listers in the lead roles.

The first trailer was just released, starring Emily Blunt as the very confused, haunted, terrified, and really just massively wrecked protagonist, Rachel. A slowed down, chilling version of Kanye West's "Heartless" plays over the images of a woman (Haley Bennett) who goes missing -- the same woman who was working as the nanny to Rachel's (ex) husband (Justin Theroux).

In addition to Blunt (who may be on the Oscar list for this role), Bennett, and Theroux, the film stars Rebecca Ferguson, Luke Evans, Allison Janney, Edgar Ramirez, Lisa Kudrow, and Laura Prepon.
