The Belko Experiment

James Gunn has spent most of 2016 keeping his head down and working hard, but he’ll be back in the spotlight next year with a couple of exciting new releases. One, you surely already know about — we’ve been talking about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 since the moment credits rolled on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1 — but the other is just starting its marketing push now.

The Belko Experiment is a lean, mean thriller written and produced by Gunn and directed by Greg McLean (Wolf Creek), starring 10 Cloverfield Lane‘s John Gallagher Jr. as one of many office workers who are trapped together and forced to kill or be killed. Other potential victims / murderers are played by Sean GunnMichael RookerAdria ArjonaJohn C. McGinleyTony GoldwynDavid DastmalchianMelonie Diaz, and Josh Brener. The first The Belko Experiment trailer has just been released, and you can watch it below. Read More »

The new NBC series from Tarsem Singh reimagines L. Frank Baum’s classic adventure as a grown-up fantasy drama. A young cop named Dorthy Game is whisked off to a far-off realm where she must contend with witches, warriors, sky portals, and Vincent D’Onofrio.
