Tom Hiddleston Scales Ben Wheatley’s ‘High-Rise’ in Full U.K. Trailer

9 February 2016 4:20 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Finally set for a U.S. theatrical release on May 13th (and VOD bow on April 28th), Ben Wheatley‘s adaptation of J.G. Ballard‘s 1975 dystopian novel High-Rise will first arrive in the U.K. in less than a month. They’ve been doing a stellar job of promotion over there and today we have another new trailer for the film following a doctor, played by Tom Hiddleston, who moves into a luxury apartment complex that is cut off from the rest of society.

We said in our review, “As soon as the voice of Tom Hiddleston‘s Dr. Robert Laing was heard speaking narration above his weathered and crazed visage manically moving from cluttered, dirty room to darkened feverish corner, my mind started racing. Terry Gilliam’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas popped into my consciousness and then his Brazil, after a quick title card shoves us back »

‘The Revenant’ Tops Chilly U.S. Box Office as Storm Hits East Coast

24 January 2016 8:35 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With a blizzard hammering the East Coast, Leonardo DiCaprio’s “The Revenant” topped a subdued U.S. box office with $16 million at 3,711 locations this weekend, according to Sunday estimates.

Winter Storm Jonas shut down theaters Saturday in New York City, Washington D.C., Baltimore and Philadelphia, cutting the nation’s overall moviegoing for the weekend by as much as 12% with as many as 400 locations affected. Some New York locations were re-opening Sunday but the icy conditions were likely to hold down box office in the Northeast.

Overall business was down 32% from last weekend to $113 million and off 29% from the same 2015 weekend, according to Rentrak.

Fox’s “The Revenant,” set in the brutal winter of 1823, came in first for the first time after two second-place finishes following its wide-release expansion on Jan. 8. The Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu epic, which took in a dozen Oscar nominations on Jan. 14, has topped the $119 million mark domestically. »

An ongoing series looking at fantastic prologues from classic and contemporary horror movies.

Ahead of the release, we now have another new trailer showing offthe story of a doctor, played by Tom Hiddleston, who moves into a luxury apartment complex that is cut off from the rest of society. We named it one of the best films of Tiff, and this evocative trailer should be enough to sell those that are curious.
