HIGH-RISE posters

What a long wait it's been for J.G. Ballard's High-Rise to reach the screen. Not only have I been following the film's progress here for six long years, but producer Jeremy Thomas has been trying to get it made for almost forty (Nicolas Roeg almost took the reins in the late '70s).

With Ben Wheatley's adaptation so close now that you can almost taste it, whet your appetite (for barbecued dog) with these three excellent posters. My favourite is the one with the falling man reflected in the car, which has an appropriately retro feel to it. Something about it reminds me of the covers of Ballard paperbacks from the '70s and '80s. Intentional or not, it's also a nice little nod to Crash.
