A pencil? The sellotape dispenser? The telephone? Or a simple china cup? That’s the options for a weapon of choice in the brilliant new posters released for the upcoming The Belko Experiment.
The film from Wolf Creek director Greg McLean certainly looks like it is ready to unleash its fair share of violence within the confines of the Belko Industries building and with all manner of possibilities in items to utilise we expect this one to be filled with its fair share of surprises and gruesome deaths.
If the new posters are anything to go by then we could see plenty of inventive dispatches of employees that may well draw some unexpected laughs along the way as well as plenty of wincing.
You can see the new posters below.
When office workers arrive for work at Belko Industries’ isolated high-rise campus outside Bogotá, Colombia, the morning starts much like any other. Mike Pelk (John Gallagher, Jr.) smokes weed in the bathroom and flirts with his beautiful officemate Leandra (Adria Arjona) while new employee Dany Wilkins (Melonie Diaz) settles in for her first day on the job. Everything changes when an anonymous voice comes through the intercom speakers ordering employees to kill two of their colleagues within 30 minutes. Many of the 80 employees assume the order is a sick joke, even when steel-plated doors snap shut sealing off all windows and exits. When they fail to comply before the half hour is up, the heads of four randomly chosen office workers explode. Panic reaches a fever pitch when the disembodied voice issues his next command: thirty people must be killed within the next two hours or 60 people will die. Belko COO Barry Norris (Tony Goldwyn), a former Special Forces operative, commandeers a vault filled with guns, assembles an ad-hoc death squad and begins executing elderly and childless employees. In the ensuing melee, ordinary office workers including stoner Marty (Sean Gunn), nerdy Keith (Josh Brener), creepy Wendell (John C. McGinley) and maintenance guy Bud (Michael Rooker) reveal their true colors.
The Belko Experiment is released in UK cinemas on 21st April.
