Watch: New Trailer for Greg McLean's Thriller 'The Belko Experiment'
"We are not going to entertain the option of killing people." BH Tilt + Orion have released a second trailer for the horror-thriller film The Belko Experiment, which premiered at TIFF last year. Here's the concept: a corporate high-rise building is locked down and the workers are forced to play a game of "kill or be killed". Directed by Greg McLean (of Wolf Creek), 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. This is much better than the first trailer, and I'm still looking forward to seeing it. Going to be dark and violent and totally wicked. Have fun.
Here's the second 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. Planning to see this?

McGinley is awesome. Not sure this will be, but it looks okay so far.

They had to put Michael Rooker inside, right? So, if you want to have crazy, you have it. However, the idea repels me. Big time. I mean, should people enjoy killings at work for someone's twisted idea of control? Films really are trying to push the limits of flexibility and acceptability to human sufferings for no purpose. Not fun ...

It's a James Gunn movie. Of course it has Rooker (and Sean Gunn) in it. I'm pretty sure this is going to be more comedy than horror. They're billing it as a horror/thriller, but (based on what James Gunn has said) it's going to be more of a surreal black comedy... he said the idea for this came to him in a dream....

"From the producer of The Conjuring and Annabelle" - and I'm out.

I appear to be the only one who is psyched to see another James Gunn movie with Michael Rooker and Sean Gunn (Slither, Super and Guardians of the Galaxy are some of the more entertaining films of this century)....besides, I'm sure this movie is going to be more of a dark comedy than a gory torture-porny movie.

John Gallagher Jr and John C. McGinley are always a blast to watch. And this sounds like a cool setting and premise (hope there's something original to it)
