High-Rise featured on Empire Magazine

High-Rise is featured on April issue of Empire Magazine, featuring the first official promotional image with Tom on it.

There are many reasons to look forward to High-Rise. It’s the latest, and possibly craziest, film to date from Ben Wheatley – and when you consider that he’s directed Kill List, Sightseers and A Field In England, that’s saying something. An adaptation of the J.G. Ballard novel about the disintegration of the denizens of a London tower block in 1975, it promises to be challenging, evocative, violent, deranged, darkly funny, bewildering and gripping.

And then, if all that isn’t enough, there’s its astonishing cast, including Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Elisabeth Moss, James Purefoy, Reece Shearsmith and, as polar opposites whose paths will fatefully cross as everything falls apart, Luke Evans and Tom Hiddleston.

Tom is nominated at WhatsOnStage Awards

Some of Britain’s hottest stars and several of New York’s acclaimed musicals are up for WhatsOnStage Awards, the recipients of which are announced today, February 15, at the Prince of Wales Theatre in the heart of London’s West End. The awards show is hosted by British performers Mel Giedroyc and Steve Furst.

Broadway favorites like Memphis, Urinetown, and Here Lies Love are all competing against one another in the Best New Musical category, while splashy West End revivals of The Pajama Game and Miss Saigon go head to head in the Best Revival of a Musical category.

The Best Actor in a Play category is filled with stage and screen favorites, with David Tennant, Tom Hiddleston, Richard Armitage, and Mark Strong battling for the recognition. Hiddleston, known for playing Loki in the Avengers films, is nominated for leading the cast of Donmar Warehouse’s Coriolanus, while Doctor Who’s Tennant is also receiving a nomination for Shakespeare with his performance as Richard II at the Barbican. Strong, who can be seen in The Imitation Game, is Eddie Carbone in a new revival of A View From the Bridge.
