See Tom Hiddleston in First Image from High-Rise
Although it hasn't gotten much attention yet, High-Rise is one of the reasons we're excited for this year's slate of indie sci-fi, not least because it stars Marvel favorite Tom Hiddleston. Here is the first image from the film featuring Hiddleston aka Loki, first published by Empire:

High-Rise follows a young doctor in an alternate 1975 who is seduced by the lifestyle in an isolated high-rise community that is luxuriously cut off from the rest of society. Based on a book by J.G. Ballard, it has all the makings of an urban-set Snowpiercer.
Here's the synopsis for the novel: "When a class war erupts inside a luxurious apartment block, modern elevators become violent battlegrounds and cocktail parties degenerate into marauding attacks on "enemy" floors. In this visionary tale, human society slips into violent reverse as once-peaceful residents, driven by primal urges, re-create a world ruled by the laws of the jungle."
High-Rise also stars Sienna Miller, Elizabeth Moss, Luke Evans, The Following's James Purefoy, and Resident Evil's Sienna Guillory. It is set to be released sometime in 2015.
