To this day, the Stanford Prison Experiment is one of the most notorious, infamous studies to ever utilize human subjects. The famed 1971 experiment, led by Philip Zimbardo, enlisted a group of male students and sorted them into roles of prisoners and guards, and what followed got so out of hand, it shocked not only researchers, but the country at large.
Decades later, the experiment has been adapted into a film starring Billy Crudup of “Almost Famous” as Zimbardo and Olivia Thirlby of “Juno” as his wife. Also starring in the film are Tye Sheridan, Michael Angarano, and Ezra Miller.
The trailer is a bit frightening, especially considering that this all actually happened, so young viewers beware.
The film is due to be released in both Video on Demand and in theaters July 24, 2015.
