Based on J.G. Ballard’s brilliant novel of the same name, Ben Wheatley's High-Rise stars Tom Hiddleston as Dr. Robert Laing, who discovers a new way of life after moving into a skyscraper packed with peculiar characters. If you missed High-Rise in theaters, don't despair, because Magnolia Home Entertainment will give the film a Blu-ray / DVD release this summer.

High-Rise is scheduled to come out on Blu-ray and DVD on August 2nd. Special features and official cover art have yet to be revealed, but we'll keep Daily Dead readers updated on further announcements. In case you missed it, check out Heather's review of Ben Wheatley's latest film:

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, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), 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."
