Can’t They Just Send in Groot? James Gunn’s The Belko Experiment Looks Terrifying and Hilarious

Because of Guardians of the Galaxy, we tend to think of director, James Gunn as a warm and fuzzy kind of guy, Turns out we may have been wrong about that. As you’ll see in this crazy (can’t help thinking this is the sort of thing that might happen under the current administration) teaser for The Belko Experiment (written by Gunn, directed by Greg McLean), his mind is a little more warped than you probably imagined.

The story is about a company headquartered in Bogotá, Colombia, where employees are alerted via loudspeaker that there are about to be huge cuts … and the employees themselves are going to have to make them. Literally. Have a look:

Where the hell are Rocket and Groot when you need them?

Starring Guardians‘ Michael Rooker and Gunn’s “idiot brother, Sean, as well as John Gallagher Jr.Adria Arjona, Melonie Diaz, John C. McGinley,  David Dastmalchian and Josh Brener, The Belko Experiment will be in theaters March 17th.
