Adrien Brody not camera shy in first Experiment poster

Jun. 29, 2010by: Paul Tassi

There’s a brand new poster out for THE EXPERIMENT, the Adrian Brody/Forest Whitaker remake of DAS EXPERIMENT, the 2001 German film based on the infamous Stanford Prison Experiment where a group of young men were divided into prisoners and guards to see what effect the roles would have on them.

Well, in only a few days, the experiment was out of control, with the guards being sadistic and the prisoners rioting and going on hunger strikes. I didn’t care for DAS EXPERIMENT because it took what’s actually a really interesting true story, and decided it wasn’t cool enough, cranking the dial to eleven and introducing torture, rape and murder to the mix. More exciting I guess, but it felt a bit cheap.

I have no idea when this film is coming out, as I’ve been hearing about it forever and I’m pretty certain it’s been done filming for a while now. Check out the poster below (via Bloody Disgusting), and scan it for secret clues about a release date.

Extra Tidbit: Iíve got to give props to Adrian Brody these days. He could have faded into obscurity, but is busting his ass to get some grittier roles in movies like this and PREDATORS.

this filmed here in Iowa, & it's been done for almost a year, if not a little more. a friend of mine was Brody's on set assistant.

The original was insanely good. So I think they can hit it off with this.

Now moving on to a poster for The Experiment, cleary from the early 21th century movement known as Noobism.

I learned about this experiment during my psychology class and it was pretty disturbing. I'm interested in seeing how the film turns out.

This is a disappointing poster. Not much is going on. However, the plot and cast sound good.

The idea (though borrowed from real-life) is just too good to pass up. You don't get many role-reversal movies like this one, so I'm hoping they don't drop the ball on it. I hope it's able to keep a good Lord of the Flies/Battle Royale feel throughout.

I always loved learning about this experiment in my Psychology classes, people and the mind are so intriguing. If done the right way, this movie could be outstanding. But these days, it's not so easy to trust Hollywood with a true story, and not embellish it. But hey, Whitaker and Brody are involved so, I'm definitely looking forward to this one now being the first I've heard of it.
