Tom Hiddleston is moving up in the world. Both literally and figuratively in this case. The “Crimson Peak” actor is getting a surprise in “High-Rise,” after moving into a new high-tech building where things aren’t exactly what they seem.

You can check out the chic and slightly richly alluring, yet creepy first trailer and poster for the movie below!

The thriller also stars Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Elizabeth Moss, and Luke Evans. Directed by Ben Wheatley (“Kill List”) from a screenplay by J.G. Ballard, the film is adapted from the novel by Amy Jump.

“High-Rise” is available on iTunes and OnDemand April 28, with a theatrical release to follow on May 13. The film premiered at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival.

Synopsis: High-Rise stars Hiddleston 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 (Miller), his upstairs neighbor and bohemian single mother; Wilder (Evans), a charismatic documentarian who lives with his pregnant wife Helen (Moss); and Mr. Royal (Irons), 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.
