A Sinister J.G. Ballard Adaptation Gets a New Trailer

We’re pretty excited about Ben Wheatley’s forthcoming adaptation of J.G. Ballard’s High-Rise. Wheatley’s a filmmaker who can capture the moment where life turns from surreal to nightmarish, which is an essential quality when translating Ballard’s work to the screen. A new trailer has been released for the film; if the first one focused more on the idyllic setting of the film, this one shows the stresses behind it, and suggests the moment when it all begins to fall apart. You can watch it below.
