The first teaser poster and teaser trailer has been released for upcoming sci-fi drama High-Rise.

Directed by Ben Wheatley (Sightseers, A Field in England) and starring Tom Hiddleston, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans, Elisabeth Moss and Jeremy Irons, High-Rise is based on the book of the same name from J.G. Ballard.

1975. Two miles west of London, Dr. Robert Laing moves into his new apartment seeking soulless anonymity, only to find that the building’s residents have no intention of leaving him alone. Resigned to the complex social dynamics unfolding around him, Laing bites the bullet and becomes neighbourly. As he struggles to establish his position, Laing’s good manners and sanity disintegrate along with the building. The lights go out and the lifts fail but the party goes on. People are the problem. Booze is the currency. Sex is the panacea. Only much later, as he sits on his balcony eating the architect’s dog, does Dr. Robert Laing finally feel at home…

High-Rise will be released in UK cinemas 18th March 2016. You can see the teaser poster and teaser trailer below:
