The ‘High Rise’ audiobook is now available for download at Audible.Com! It is free when you signup for a 30 day trial here.

 

NEWARK, N.J., Mar 26, 2015 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Audible Studios, a production arm of Audible.com, today announced the release of Tom Hiddleston’s vivid interpretation of J. G. Ballard’s unnerving dystopian novel, High-Rise. The narration by The Avengers star Hiddleston, which anticipates the release of a new film adaptation of the novel in the fall, is available for download at www.audible.com/HighRise.

“I spent last summer holed up as Dr. Laing on the 25th floor of the ‘High Rise,’ as brought to life on film by Ben Wheatley and Amy Jump,” said Hiddleston. “The book was always, necessarily, our cornerstone. Ahead of the release of the film, it was great to go back to J. G. Ballard’s original text and to read it aloud. Ballard was prescient about so many things: our seduction by (and reliance on) technology; our attempted colonization of the sky; and his particular, distinguishing implication that modern civilization is perhaps only a few neighborly disagreements away from collapse and chaos.”

“Because Tom was already immersed in the film version of this modern classic, he was the perfect actor to create the audio version,” said Audible Publisher and EVP Beth Anderson. “His performance is nothing short of remarkable, and listeners will be riveted by how viscerally he brings the terror and mayhem of this story to life.”

The forthcoming film adaptation of High-Rise stars Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller and Elisabeth Moss. High-Rise was first published in 1975.

In addition to Hiddleston, among the acclaimed performers who have narrated works of literature for Audible are Dan Stevens, Jake Gyllenhaal, Kate Winslet and Tim Robbins. In 2013, Audible Studios won its first Grammy Award, for its production of Janis Ian’s memoir Society’s Child, and also won the Audie Award for Audiobook of the Year, for Colin Firth’s performance of Graham Greene’s The End of the Affair.

Audible, the world’s largest seller and producer of downloadable audiobooks and other spoken-word content, invented and commercialized the first digital audio player in 1997, and has since been at the forefront of the explosively growing audiobook download segment. In 2014, listeners around the world downloaded 1.2 billion hours of audio from Audible.com outlets; Audible members downloaded an average of more than 17 books over the course of the year. More than half of current Audible members are first-time audiobook buyers.

loki-128144Five-time Oscar-nominated actor-director Kenneth Branagh, who directed the first Thor(2011) film, shares his thoughts on what makes Tom Hiddleston’s Loki a fan-favorite.

“People like villains. People like damaged villains,” Branagh told IGN when asked about Loki’s appeal. “He was always an enormous part of the comics. A much loved villain, much of the way that happens on those big legacy pieces. They happened to find a great actor in Tom Hiddleston, who again brought depth to it the same way Cate Blanchett did with this stepmother role in Cinderella. Why people go to the dark side is always fascinating. The survival instinct makes them very inventive. It means they’re always surprising you. So, when you have that dark, damaged quality and literally a box of tricks to play with that kind of character is going to be around for a long time.”

He reiterated a desire to return to the Marvel cinematic universe as a director, and adds that he would be open to working in the Star Wars universe as well.

Horror master, Stephen King was treated to a private screening of the upcoming horror film due out this October and has praised the film!

When you’re the most famous horror author of all time, you get a bunch of perks. One of which is sometimes you get to see major motion pictures seven months early with a plus one. I’m talking of course of Stephen King, who recently took to Twitter to heap praise on Guillermo del Toro‘s Crimson Peak, which he apparently had a chance to see in recent days. King’s son, accomplished author Joe Hill, also saw the film and he too had some wonderful things to say about the movie, which opens October 16. Read the Stephen King Crimson Peak reaction below.

Also attending were Alan Rickman, Jane Seymour and Sir John Hurt.

Lord Attenborough, a stalwart of the British film industry for more than half a century, died aged 90 last year.

Sir Ben Kingsley and Lord Attenborough’s brother, TV wildlife presenter Sir David Attenborough, were among those who spoke during the Westminster Abbey ceremony.

It was led by the Dean of Westminster, the very reverend Dr John Hall.

Empire readers pick their 30 top super flicks and 2011’s Thor lands on the list at number 23.

Director: Kenneth Branagh
Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Anthony Hopkins, Kat Dennings, Stellan Skarsgård, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Clark Gregg

Marvel’s big-screen version of their Norse God Of Thunder could have gone so terribly wrong it might have stopped the MCU before it had properly got going. But director Kenneth Branagh recognised that, skilfully teasing out the Shakespearean heft and keeping the lapses into Flash Gordon territory to a minimum. It still has flaws and cheese aplenty, but Branagh has a blast with the basic concept of a brash God thundering his way around a small American town.

MVP: The three Hs – Hemsworth, Hopkins, Hiddleston – are all excellent, with Hemsworth confirming the star potential evinced in his brief Star Trek cameo. But Hiddleston steals the show, crafting a Loki who’s tortured, capricious, scheming, tragic and all-too-human. In the process, he created a character that captured the public imagination in a way that we reckon not even Marvel were prepared for, hence some of the last-minute reshuffling in Thor: The Dark World that allowed Loki to stand front and centre as one of the MCU’s principal villains.

Standout moment: The fish out of water comedy is relatively restrained, all things considered, but the moment when a bewildered Thor marches into a pet store and demands a horse is a belter.

British thesps Olivia Colman and Tom Hollander, and Australian actress Elizabeth Debicki, have been cast in the AMC/BBC One co-production “The Night Manager” alongside Hugh Laurie and Tom Hiddleston.

Academy Award-winning director Susanne Bier will helm the project, which will be produced by the Ink Factory, BBC One and AMC for broadcast in 2016. Executive producers are Stephen Cornwell and Simon Cornwell for the Ink Factory, Stephen Garrett, David Farr, and Polly Hill for the BBC.
