Watch: First Trailer for 'The Belko Experiment' Written by James Gunn
"All employees - lend me your full attention." BH Tilt + Orion Pictures have released a red band trailer for a film titled The Belko Experiment, which premiered at TIFF this year. This film has a crazy cool premise - a corporate high-rise building is locked down and the workers are forced to play a game of "kill or be killed". It's directed by Greg McLean (of Wolf Creek) and written by James Gunn (of Guardians of the Galaxy); starring John Gallagher Jr, Michael Rooker, Tony Goldwyn, Adria Arjona, John C. McGinley, Melonie Diaz, Owain Yeoman, Sean Gunn, Brent Sexton, and Josh Brener. I heard fantastic things about this out of TIFF, and I'm already planning to see it when it opens. Looks like crazy corporate job fun.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Greg McLean's The Belko Experiment, direct from YouTube:
In a twisted social experiment, a group of 80 Americans are locked in their high-rise corporate office in Bogata, Colombia and ordered by an unknown voice coming from the company's intercom system to participate in a deadly game of kill or be killed. The Belko Experiment is directed by Australian filmmaker Greg McLean, of the horror films Wolf Creek 1 & 2, Rogue and The Darkness previously. The screenplay is written by fellow filmmaker James Gunn (writer of Dawn of the Dead, Slither, Super, Guardians of the Galaxy). The film first premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in 2016. BH Tilt & High Top will release The Belko Experiment in US theaters starting March 17th, 2017 in the next few months. How does this look?

Silly as hell. But hey, Tony Goldwyn, so I'll give this a shot on Netflix.

Hasn't this been done already? Wasn't Severance similar to this?

So, become gladiator or be killed? Some self-indulgent idea for lazy people ...
