New Sales Poster for Adrien Brody's 'The Experiment' Found
Okay, we still don't know when the heck this film is ever going to hit theaters, but a pretty cool new teaser poster for Paul Scheuring's The Experiment was uncovered on Bloody-Disgusting today. Adrien Brody is pretty hot right now (with Splice, Predators, High School, etc) so he's obviously getting the prime spot on here, although this indie thriller also stars Forest Whitaker, Elijah Wood, Cam Gigandet, Clifton Collins Jr. and Maggie Grace. We featured some first look photos last year but this is all the media related to this film we've ever seen since then. I think it could actually be pretty cool, we just gotta see a trailer. Check this out!
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. The Experiment is both written and directed by Paul Scheuring, a former "Prison Break" producer/writer who also directed a film called 36K. Sadly, this film is still looking for a US distributor, so we'll have to keep you updated on what we hear. Check out those early first look photos here.

The original is very disturbing. Let's hope for the remake to have at least 75% of the impact of that film...

Here we go again, another remake. Seriously, Hollywood is getting stale.

The original is a masterpiece.

I had to do a report about this in my psychology class, Standford Prison Experiment. Very interesting concept all around and the out-comes were pretty intense as well, I wonder if they'll have it set up in the movie as in the real life experiment and have the people switch roles 1/2 way through...

Meh, I think the original Das Experiment ain't really good. Maybe 'cos I'm german, I dunno. I gotta see how far they changed this one. I usually don't like remakes, but there a couple great actors innit, so I hope it's going to be better (than the original).

BRODY IS THE MAN....The movies he's been involved with lately are so damn intriguing. Being unfamiliar with the first movie, I channel my anticipation directly into this flick. Bring it.
