Remember learning about that terrifying prison experiment gone awry in psychology class? There's a new movie, The Stanford Prison Experiment, that will tell the tale of the infamously horrifying 1971 social trial. Ezra Miller and Tye Sheridan are among the young men posing as prisoners for professor Dr. Philip Zimbardo (Billy Crudup), opposite Michael Angarano and several others as faux guards. The trailer is deeply disconcerting, which means the movie is going to be even more disturbing. The movie opened at Sundance this year, and it'll be released in theaters on July 17.
