Guardians of the Galaxy and Wolf Creek Directors Team for Horror Movie The Belco Experiment

Published

on

One of last year’s most downright entertaining films was Guardians of the Galaxy, which James Gunn wrote and directed. Gunn got his start in the horror genre, directing horror-comedy Slither, and up next he returns to horror with an incredibly exciting project.

Over on his Facebook page, Gunn revealed today that he and Wolf Creek director Greg McLean are teaming up on The Belco Experiment, which Gunn wrote and McLean will direct. Yes, the makers of Guardians and Wolf Creek are joining forces, which is music to our ears.

“The story revolves around the American Belco company in South America which is mysteriously sealed off at the beginning of a work day, and its employees are ordered to kill each other or be killed themselves,” wrote Gunn. “This starts an escalation of violence, where we discover the true nature of each and every Belco employee.”

“The film will be directed by Greg McLean, who directed the Wolf Creek films, and it will be produced by myself, and Peter Safran, who produced Annabelle and The Conjuring. MGM will be financing. We’re in pre-production now and will be shooting in Bogota, Colombia in early June of this year.”

“I cannot tell you how passionate and excited I am about this project! It’s a script I wrote a few years ago, for which I have always had a deep love. Believe it or not, it’s a film that first came to me in a dream, and I woke up and wrote the first draft in a two-week fugue state binge.”

Gunn calls The Belco Experiment “the most intense and uncompromising” script he’s ever written, though he notes that it has the heart and humor of his other films. Casting announcements will soon be made, though for now he has only provided us with a picture of the script.

We’ll be sure to keep you posted as we learn more about this one!

‘Solar Opposites: Halloween Special’ Trailer Takes the Series into the Spooky Season

Published

on

Solar

Solar Opposites has dropped a trailer for its Halloween Special and it looks like a blast. The Justin Roiland series is a nice change up from the sci-fi antics of Rick and Morty, but still has a lot of the same voices and debauchery. The Halloween episode takes the extraterrestrial family down a path of the macabre and even takes them into hell itself.

The synopsis for Solar Opposites season 3 goes like this:

Co-created by Justin Roiland (“Rick & Morty”) and Mike McMahan (“Rick & Morty”, “Star Trek: Lower Decks”), “Solar Opposites” centers around a team of four aliens who are evenly split on whether Earth is awful or awesome. Korvo (Justin Roiland) and Yumyulack (Sean Giambrone) only see the pollution, crass consumerism, and human frailty while Terry (Thomas Middleditch) and Jesse (Mary Mack) love TV, junk food and fun stuff. In season three, this alien team strives to be less of a team and more of a family team.

Solar Opposites: Halloween Special arrives on Hulu beginning October 3.

First Trailer For ‘The Last of Us’ is All About Brutal Survival

Published

Last

The first trailer for The Last of Us has finally arrived and it doesn’t let you down in the least. The hit video game series of the same name has given us some truly brutal survival in a savage post-apocolyptic world.

The fact that Chernobyl creator, Craig Mazin is in charge of bringing this brutal world to life is already a sign that we are in the best hands possible. It’s also great to see that the series is taking what existed in the game and just recreating that world and its many beautifully cinematic scenes. If it isn’t broken don’t fix it. I wish more filmmakers would do the same.

The synopsis for The Last of Us goes like this:

Set in the post-apocalyptic United States, the game tells the story of survivors Joel and Ellie as they work together to survive their westward journey across what remains of the country to find a possible cure for the modern fungal plague that has nearly decimated the entire human race.

The Last of Us will arrive on HBO Max beginning in 2023.
