Announcement Follows the Film’s Successful Screening at TIFF’S Midnight Madness

On the heels of a raucous debut screening at the Toronto International Film Festival’s Midnight Madness, Orion and BH Tilt announced today that they are partnering to release The Belko Experiment directed by Greg McLean (The Darkness, Wolf Creek), written and produced by James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2) and produced by Peter Safran (The Conjuring and Annabelle).

The film will debut in theaters on March 17th, 2017. BH Tilt is Blumhouse’s releasing company run by John Hegeman that takes advantage of new distribution and marketing strategies to release targeted films backed by digitally heavy campaigns. BH Tilt’s most recent release, The Darkness starring Kevin Bacon and directed by McLean, grossed over $10m in a targeted release and its next film, Incarnate, directed by Brad Peyton and starring Aaron Eckhart, will be released on December 2nd.

Hegeman said: “Greg, James and Peter made a truly original and unique movie that we are excited to work with them and Orion on bringing to genre audiences all across the country.”

Jonathan Glickman, MGM’s President, Motion Picture Group said, “Following a rousing debut here in Toronto, there is no better partner for this exciting film than in the talented hands of BH Tilt. We cannot wait for audiences to experience in what Greg, James and Peter have created.”

Gunn said: "I can't imagine a better home for us than BH Tilt - a movie as edgy and unique as Belko needs a deft hand for its release, and BH Tilt is the deftest of them all."

McLean said: "I'm so proud of this movie and the amazing team of collaborators behind it and couldn't be more excited about once more working with my friends at Orion and BH Tilt to bring Belko to audiences. Genre fans are in for an unforgettable ride!”

The Belko Experiment explores a twisted social experiment, in which a group of 80 Americans are locked in their high-rise corporate office in Bogata, Colombia and ordered by an unknown voice coming from the company’s intercom system to participate in a deadly game of kill or be killed.

The film stars John Gallagher Jr. (The Newsroom, 10 Cloverfield Lane), Tony Goldwyn (Scandal), Adria Arjona (True Detective), John C. McGinley (Stan Against Evil, Scrubs), Josh Brener (Silicon Valley), Michael Rooker (Guardians of the Galaxy), Sean Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Melonie Diaz (Fruitvale Station).

Movie Review: #MissSloane

The political drama Miss Sloane fails to lobby us into Oscar territory.
Review by Matt Cummings
In a time when women were supposed to be leading our country, Miss Sloane arrives to remind us of what could have been. Unfortunately, this message about a headstrong female Washington lobbyist loses us early with an unappealing director, a paper-thin plot, and suffers from a ton of convenient realism. If the good (but not impressive) performances weren't there to buffer these and many other gaps, we might have found ourselves voting for impeachment.

For Washington lobbyist Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain), life is about getting her clients what they want from the halls of Congress. Her boss Dupont (Sam Waterston) will sleep with NRA types, fudge travel records, and bully smaller firms into submission if it means a hearty paycheck at day's end. But when Sloane leaves the company to push Gun Control legislation with one of those smaller firms, Dupont turns to his bulldog Co…

Name & mailing address

Outrageously fun and deeply affecting, Swiss Army Man is a gonzo buddy comedy that is the feature film debut of acclaimed music video directors Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan (collectively known as DANIELS, and responsible for the visionary “Turn Down For What” video, among many others). Bursting with limitless creativity in both form and content, Swiss Army Man goes from the absurd to the emotional to the whimsical to the profound and back again.

Hank (Paul Dano) is stranded on a deserted island, having given up all hope of ever making it home again. But one day everything changes when a corpse named Manny (Daniel Radcliffe) washes up on shore; the two become fast friends…
