Last month, my home city of Washington, D.C. got a couple feet of snow and I spent three days holed up in my apartment. That brief 72-hour span alone nearly drove me to the brink of insanity, and so I suppose I get where the characters in the J.G. Ballard adaptation High-Rise are coming from. Their luxury apartment complex has sufficient amenities to make entering the outside world unnecessary, and so of course they all devolve into warlike tribes and turn on one another in an orgy of bourgeois social angling gone violent. A few days of snow nearly had me talking to cantaloupes with faces painted on them; life in a high-rise, even a fabulously posh one, would be more than enough to get me to eat my landlord‘s dog.
By now you’ve heard the buzz surrounding High-Rise, the new film from director Ben Wheatley, the deranged and brilliant mind behind films like Kill List, A Field in England and Sightseers. That buzz is well-earned for Wheatley’s latest, which is based on the novel by J.G. Ballard (Drive) and features an incredible lineup, including Tom Hiddleston, Elisabeth Moss, Luke Evans and more. A new trailer has arrived, offering a tantalizing and slightly unnerving glimpse inside the titular high-rise, and teasing the evolving (or devolving) psyche of the residents within.
Among the sequels and reboots and remakes and re-quels (a word I just made up, but will inevitably be real one day), one of 2016’s most hotly anticipated releases is Ben Wheatley’s adaptation of the J.G. Ballard novel High-Rise. Wheatley impressed...
The first trailer for the film, released today, indicates that it’s only a matter of time until the rabid Tom Hiddleston fans and equally rabid J.G. Ballard fans get what they crave.
With their awesome Phase Two box set hitting retailers in just a few days, Marvel has been releasing a few of the extras featured in the collection to give us a teeny tiny taste of the vast array of special features we’ll find within. In addition to showing off Chris Pratt and Dave Bautista’s Guardians of the Galaxy audition, the studio has revealed this deleted scene from Thor: The Dark World, which puts Tom Hiddleston’s Loki in a position of great power — sort of.
We know Tom Hiddleston is a great actor, we know he’s got some serious dance moves (watch out, Sam Rockwell), and now we know he can belt out a tune, as the actor does his own singing in the upcoming Hank Williams biopic I Saw the Light. You can catch a preview of the actor’s singing abilities in the new, full trailer for the film, which was recently pushed back to next March.
If you were getting excited about seeing Tom Hiddleston croon as country legend Hank Williams in I Saw the Light, it looks like you’re going to have to wait a little longer. The upcoming country music biopic has been pushed back four months from its November release date, moving out of awards season and into the middle of next spring. But early buzz on the film suggests it may not have been cut out for awards season anyway.
Prepare yourself... for the EXTREMELY LARGE MONSTERS CINEMATIC UNIVERSE.
Alfred Hitchcock had a saying: “Logic is dull.” On the basis of Crimson Peak, it’s pretty clear Guillermo del Toro feels the same way.
Tom Hiddleston, despite being an otherwise extremely pleasant and lovely human being, has a habit of playing some evil dudes. There’s Loki, from The Avengers, Adam from Only Lovers Left Alive, and now Thomas Sharpe in Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak. What do directors see in this charming actor to cast him as an antihero? Is he secretly a monster? Does he hate Beyoncé and puppies? We caught up with Hiddleston recently to talk about Crimson Peak and to get to the bottom of this mystery.
