Watch: First Full Trailer for 'The Stanford Prison Experiment' Movie
"Under no circumstances whatsoever are you to physically assault the prisoners in any way." IFC Films has debuted the trailer for The Stanford Prison Experiment, an adaptation of the seminal psychological experiment conducted in the early 70s. The movie tries to replicate and tell the full story without holding back. The impressive ensemble cast includes: Billy Crudup, Ezra Miller, Michael Angarano, Tye Sheridan, Thomas Mann, Keir Gilchrist, Johnny Simmons & Olivia Thirlby. All of them give great performances, which is what makes this such a great film to watch. It truly is so unsettling and disturbing at times you forget you're watching a movie, and just hope everyone makes it out okay. Give this trailer a look.
Here's the trailer for Kyle Patrick Alvarez's The Stanford Prison Experiment, found on YouTube:
Twenty-four male students out of seventy-five were selected to take on randomly assigned roles of prisoners and guards in a mock prison situated in the basement of the Stanford psychology building. Based on the real-life version of The Stanford Prison Experiment, devised and run by Dr. Philip Zimbardo in 1971. The film is directed by filmmaker Kyle Patrick Alvarez (of Easier with Practice, C.O.G.), from a screenplay by Tim Talbott. It first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. IFC Films will release The Stanford Prison Experiment in select theaters starting July 17th this summer. Read my review.
