A24 has picked up the U.S. rights to Green Room, Broad Green’s horror thriller starring Patrick Stewart and Anton Yelchin, ahead of its North American premiere at the Toronto Film Festival.

A24 is planning a theatrical run in spring 2016.

Jeremy Saulnier, who generated acclaim with this thriller Blue Ruin, helmed the movie, which sees Yelchin, Imogen Poots and Alia Shawkat as members of a punk band that see something they shouldn’t while at a gig in an Oregon backwoods club. The club’s owners, led by a diabolical Stewart, decide this will be the band’s final appearance, leading to a life-or-death battle.

The film premiered at Cannes to reviews praising Stewart and Poots while noting the efficacy of the ultraviolence.

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.
