The new trailer for Tom Hiddleston’s new film “High Rise” was just revealed.
If you easily fell in love with the actor in under 20 seconds, you will love this new teaser. In the clip, we see glimpses of Hiddleston’s excellent physique. Billowing curtains, a book and a towel are all that obscure the actor’s naked glory. His signature smirk also make an appearance. To quote a character in the trailer: the actor is truly “an excellent specimen.”
According to Slash Film, the British actor would be playing Robert Laing, a doctor who moves into a high-rise apartment building in London. Laing is easily “seduced by the easy luxury of life in the tower.” But tension brews between the classes. And Laing finds himself being swept up in the chaos that ensues.
“High-Rise” previously premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) last year. The film gained mixed reviews. Movies.com, on the other hand, was a bit kinder. In their review, they gushed that “Laing is Hiddleston’s best work to date.”
“High Rise” also stars Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans, James Purefoy and Keeley Hawes. Elisabeth Moss also joins the cast. The actress is known for her role as Peggy Olson in AMC’s Mad Men.
The film is directed by acclaimed English director Ben Wheatley.
“High Rise” is based on the 1975 novel by J.G. Ballard.
Meanwhile, Hiddleston might not be appearing in Marvel’s next flick, “Captain America: Civil War.” Hiddleston first gained major popularity playing Loki in “Thor” (2011). The actor also played the villain in “The Avengers” (2012). Ant Man (Paul Rudd) might make an appearance, though. He is briefly shown in the movie’s Super Bowl 50 trailer. “Civil War” premiers on May 6.
“High Rise” is set to hit theatres on March 18.
