The Belko Experiment, written by James Gunn is due for a full trailer so of course there’s a teaser making the Internet rounds over the weekend until that fill trailer arrives. Directed by Greg McLean (Wolf Creek) The Belko Experiment looks to be a mashup of Battle Royale & The Office. Check out the teaser below.
The good money is on whichever character is most like Dwight from The Office, although the Belko equivalent of Pam would be a good bet to come out on top at the end.
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.
John Gallager Jr. stars along with Tony Goldyn, John C. McGinley, David Dastmalchian, Michael Rooker, Sean Gunn and Gregg Henry.
The Belko Experiment arrives on March 17, 2017.
