The Experiment gets a trailer, and is heading straight to DVD?

07.12.2010

The first trailer for Paul Scheuring’s THE EXPERIMENT remake is finally online, and with it comes one big new question.

This is going straight to DVD?

So says the last few seconds of the trailer at least. I’ve been following this project for a long while now, and this is the first I’ve heard to indicate that’s what happening with this movie, which has two Oscar winners as its leads (Forest Whitaker and Adrien Brody) along with a solid supporting cast of Clifton Collins Jr, Cam Gigandet and Maggie Grace.

That being said, I don’t think the trailer looks terribly good, and say, if had never heard of Brody of Whitaker before, I might agree with the straight-to-DVD claim at the end there.

I’m looking for more details on this to confirm or deny. In the meantime, what do you guys think of the trailer?

Whether a wide release of STV, this movie will eventually get my money. Clifton Collins is always a solid choice. The plot (yeah, it's a remake) isn't something that comes around too often. Definitely on my radar.

For a straight to dvd movie, this looks pretty damn good. I am a huge fan of the plot and am a huge fan of Brody, and he looks totally bad ass in this movie, so I am definitely waiting with anticipation for this movie to be released on dvd.

Big Brother is Watching

The real reason is that since this movie could actually make you think, well, big brother doesnt like for you to think. You do the math.

.

The original story this is based off of and the acting talent alone makes me super interested in this. And I don't care if it is straight to DVD because honestly there have been straight to DVD movies that I have picked up before working at Blockbuster, and they are now some of my favorite movies. You never know!!! Hope this is good though, it has a TON of potential to be fantastic.

I agree. For example, "Felon" turned out to be pretty damn good.

Stanford Experiment

It looks like this movie is an updated version of the real life Stanford Experiment of the 1970's. Very interesting sociology experiment that had to be ended over a week early because situations were getting out of hand. DVD or theaters, I'm checking this one out. The Killing Room was pretty sweet, btw, and is similar to this type of experimental mind fuck genre.

Yeah it is. but it's fictionalized as there's a lot more rape and murder than what happened in real life.

Don't believe

I've seen worst movies gone to the big screen then this -- this looks good enough for the big screen!! I guess the Harvard graduate that runs the studio doesn't like the movie enough to give it a chance!!

"Das Experiment" was a masterpiece, such a wicked and brilliant study of human roles and psychologically adapting to our surroundings. I loved it. I'd love to see a movie that assigned people to high school roles, now THAT would end up really chaotic.

I'll see this. I love Brody and Whitaker, so this should at least be entertaining.
