The first trailer for Michael Almereyda’s (“Hamlet,” “Cymbeline”) “Experimenter” has arrived, accompained by a poster. Peter Sarsgaard leads a stellar ensemble cast which includes Winona Ryder, Jim Gaffigan, Taryn Manning, Anton Yelchin, Kellan Lutz, John Leguizamo, Anthony Edwards, Dennis Haysbert, and more, in the dramatized tale of Stanley Milgram’s “obedience research” at Yale in the 1960s. Here’s the official synopsis:
In 1961, social psychologist Stanley Milgram conducted the “obedience experiments” at Yale University. The experiments observed the responses of ordinary people asked to send harmful electrical shocks to a stranger. Despite pleadings from the person they were shocking, 65 percent of subjects obeyed commands from a lab-coated authority figure to deliver potentially fatal currents. With Adolf Eichmannâ€™s trial airing in living rooms across America, Milgramâ€™s Kafkaesque results hit a nerve, and he was accused of being a deceptive, manipulative monster. EXPERIMENTER invites us inside Milgramâ€™s whirring mind, beginning with his obedience research and wending a path to uncover how inner obsessions and the times in which he lived shaped a parade of human behavior inquiries.
“Experimenter” opens on October 15th. Check out the trailer and a clip from the film below.
The first trailer for HBO mini-series Show Me a Hero, that premieres next August 16, has been released.

As previously announced, Winona is (one of) the face of Marc Jacobs fall campaign. Jacobs unveiled the two campaign photos on his personal Instagram account on Sunday. â€œWinona and I have been friends for over 15 years. She first appeared in our campaign in 2003,â€ he captioned one picture, describing why he chose the actress. About the second picture, he said that he loved Ryderâ€™s wit, energy and said she was a great friend — in addition to being immensely talented.
Ryder first campaigned for the brand when she modeled the Spring/Summer 2003 collection. You can find the HQ images added in our gallery.
