Even though Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn and Wolf Creek helmer Greg McLean’s horror movie The Belko Experiment had its official world premiere during the Toronto International Film Festival back in September, we’ve yet to see a trailer. All that’s about to change.
Over the weekend, Gunn released the first teaser for the Orion film’s upcoming trailer set to be released on Nov. 30. The Belko Experiment stars John Gallagher Jr., Adria Arjona, Tony Goldwin, David Dastmalchian and frequent James Gunn collaborators Michael Rooker and Sean Gunn (James’ brother and the other half not-named-Bradley-Cooper of Rocket Raccoon in GotG). The movie was penned by James Gunn, with McLean sitting in the director’s chair (Gunn was a tad busy, what with that upcoming little Marvel Studios movie). Here’s the synopsis:
It at first seems to be an ordinary morning on the job for a group of Americans working for a not-for-profit in a modern office building in Colombia. After noticing that their Colombian colleagues have not arrived for work, office worker Mike (John Gallagher, Jr.) spots some unfamiliar security guards entering a large hangar nearby. Moments later, an icy voice comes over the building’s PA system and calmly explains that the employees must kill a certain number of their co-workers — if not, they will be killed themselves. While the boss (Tony Goldwyn) tries to calm the troops, Mike belatedly realizes that something truly sinister is going on — and when metal doors come sliding down on all the building’s exits and windows, it becomes clear that friends and colleagues are now suddenly enemies in a bloody and brutal battle to the death.
Worst. Workplace. Ever. The Belko Experiment will open the doors to the office building before closing them on moviegoers on March 17, 2017.
