What is The Belko Experiment, you ask? Well, remember Guardians of the Galaxy? All the fun spaceships, wacky one liners and quirky raccoons? The guy who made that film, James Gunn, just made a movie about office workers murdering the crap out of each other.
Here’s the trailer:
If you’re wondering how to explain this movie to your friends, we suggest: “It’s like Office Space meets Big Brother, but with guns, cleavers and people’s heads exploding”. We hope this helps.
Where James Gunn found time to film this in between blockbuster Marvel movies we don’t know. What we do know is just how many familiar TV actors there are here. Person of Interest’s Adria Arjona, The Newsroom’s John Gallagher Jr. and Scandal’s Tony Goldwyn headline a deep cast. Also hanging about in the background? John C. Mcginley from Scrubs and Melonie Diaz from Fruitvale Station. And Michael freakin’ Rooker.
The movie hits theatres March 17 next year, less than two months before Guardians of the Galaxy 2. James Gunn has two films coming out next year and I haven’t even decided on a new year’s resolution.
