A short new red band spot has landed for Greg McLean’s The Belko Experiment, and it shows Sean Gunn’s Marty entering a deep state of denial over the carnage that surrounds him.
Gunn forms part of a strong ensemble cast that also features genre icon Michael Rooker (Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, The Walking Dead), Tony Goldwyn (Friday the 13th Part VI, 2009’s The Last House on the Left), John C. McGinley (Scrubs, Office Space), Adria Arjona (True Detective) and John Gallagher Jr. (10 Cloverfield Lane, Hush).
McLean – the man behind Wolf Creek, Rogue and The Darkness – directs from a script by James Gunn (Sean’s brother), who has previous with Rooker, having cast him in his films Slither and Guardians of the Galaxy.
On what appears to be a normal day at Belko Industries, Belko employees are horrified when they find out that they’ve become guinea pigs in a company-wide experiment which will lead them to either kill their fellow employees or be murdered themselves. The experiment is masterminded by a mysterious voice which is controlling the loud speaker and instructing the employees to slaughter each other by any means necessary.
The Belko Experiment will hit US cinemas on March 17th, before reaching the UK on April 21st.
