“The Experimenter” Trailer

Thursday, Jul 23, 2015

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 Eichmann’s trial airing in living rooms across America, Milgram’s Kafkaesque results hit a nerve, and he was accused of being a deceptive, manipulative monster. EXPERIMENTER invites us inside Milgram’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.

Magnolia Pictures has acquired North American rights to Michael Almereyda’s drama “Experimenter,” starring Peter Sarsgaard and Winona Ryder.

Magnolia is planning a theatrical release later this year.

The film portrays Stanley Milgram’s experiment, in which subjects were made to believe they were administering electric shocks to others in order to test why people will cede to authority. The San Francisco International Film Festival announced Wednesday that “Experimenter” would be its closing night film on May 7.

“Experimenter” premiered in January at the Sundance Film Festival. The cast includes Jim Gaffigan, Taryn Manning, Anton Yelchin, Kellan Lutz, John Leguizamo, Anthony Edwards, Josh Hamilton, Lori Singer, Vondie Curtis-Hall and Dennis Haysbert.
