The stars of OCULUS and DON’T BREATHE get caught up in more satirical mayhem in OFFICE UPRISING, a Sony Crackle original horror/comedy premiering next month. The new trailer and poster have just been released.

OFFICE UPRISING launches on the Crackle streaming service July 19, but before that, it will premiere exclusively through the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 July 12-15, and on Amazon Fire TV July 16-18 via the Sony Crackle app. OCULUS’ Brenton Thwaites and DON’T BREATHE’s Jane Levy head the cast, which also includes Zachary Levi, Karan Soni (DEADPOOL), Ian Harding, Alan Ritchson, Barry Shabaka Henley, Kurt Fuller, Kenneth Choi, Gregg Henry (SLiTHER) and Sam Daly. Lin Oeding directed from a script by Ian Shorr (SPLINTER) and Peter Gamble. The synopsis: “An underachiever working at a major weapons-manufacturing firm finds that his co-workers have been ‘weaponized’ by Zolt, a new energy drink designed for the military. He must then set off to rescue his one true love from an office building full of psychotic co-workers armed with tomorrow’s deadliest tech.”
