Indie Trailer Sunday: Adrien Brody in The Experiment Trailer
This isn't much of an indie anymore as it was recently announced that Sony Home Entertainment would be quietly dumping this straight-to-DVD sometime in September. But if you can forget about that for a minute, we've finally got a trailer (via HeyUGuys) for Paul Scheuring's The Experiment, a remake of German film Das Experiment, starring Adrien Brody, Forest Whitaker, Clifton Collins Jr. and many others. The trailer is a bit low quality and is super cheesy, but this is a film that I just want to see no matter when or how it's being released, because it has a cool concept and some great actors and it doesn't look that bad. Enjoy!
Watch the first trailer for Paul Scheuring's The Experiment, embedded via YouTube:
The Experiment, an English remake of Oliver Hirschbiegel's 2001 film Das Experiment, centers on a group of ordinary people who are recruited to take on the roles of guards and prisoners as part of a psychological research study that examines how the effects of assigned roles, power and control affect the participants. Obviously it spins out of control, as you saw in the trailer. The Experiment is both written and directed by Paul Scheuring, a former "Prison Break" producer/writer who also directed a film called 36K. Sony Home Entertainment is, sadly, bringing The Experiment straight-to-DVD on September 21st this fall. You in?
