Magnolia Home Entertainment has announced the home video release of HIGH-RISE, the critically-acclaimed adaptation of the classic J.G. Ballard novel, arriving on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD August 2nd. Head inside for the details!

The movie was directed by Ben Wheatley (Kill List) and stars Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers), Academy Award winner Jeremy Irons (Reversal of Fortune), Golden Globe nominee Sienna Miller (American Sniper), Luke Evans (Beauty and the Beast) and Golden Globe winner Elisabeth Moss (“Mad Men”).

Synopsis:

HIGH-RISE stars Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers) as Dr. Robert Laing, the newest resident of a luxurious apartment in a high-tech concrete skyscraper whose lofty location places him amongst the upper class. Laing quickly settles into high society life and meets the building’s eccentric tenants: Charlotte (Golden Globe nominee Sienna Miller, American Sniper), his upstairs neighbor and bohemian single mother; Wilder (Luke Evans, Beauty and the Beast), a charismatic documentarian who lives with his pregnant wife Helen (Golden Globe winner Elisabeth Moss, “Mad Men”); and Mr. Royal (Academy Award winner Jeremy Irons, Reversal of Fortune), the enigmatic architect who designed the building. Life seems like paradise to the solitude-seeking Laing. But as power outages become more frequent and building flaws emerge, particularly on the lower floors, the regimented social strata begins to crumble and the building becomes a battlefield in a literal class war.
