THE DISASTER ARTIST with and by James Franco


A24 has released a new trailer for the upcoming sensation The Disaster Artist.

Directed by James Franco, and written by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber ((500) Days of Summer), the film follows the making of Tommy Wiseau’s The Room, the infamous cult film that’s frequently cited as one of the worst movies ever made. Disaster Artist will most likely became a cult film itself, so give the trailer below a try if you're into it. Franco also plays the Wiseau and his performance might just be the best of his career, and his brother, Dave Franco, will not disappoint either.

"Writer, director, actor and fashion icon Tommy Wiseau unleashed The Room upon unsuspecting audiences in 2003, creating a film that would achieve cult status as one of the very best worst movies ever made. Wiseau’s filmmaking skills may have been wildly inept, but he was committed to his dream. What easily could’ve been a complete disaster that vanished into obscurity has been embraced by a willing public who can’t get enough of how fascinatingly terrible the movie is." (via Slashfilm)

The film opens in limited release on December 1st, goes wide on December 8th, and also stars Seth Rogen, Alison Brie, Zac Efron, Josh Hutcherson, Jacki Weaver, Ari Graynor, and Jason Mantzoukas.

"Much like how Burton was able to look past Edward D. Wood Jr.’s technical incompetence to find imagination and soul, Franco peels back Wiseau’s incompetence to dial in on the observation that The Room is clearly the work of a man putting his entire heart and soul into a film, unaware that that he is completely devoid of talent. The Disaster Artist and Ed Wood are both tributes to bootstrap filmmaking and the dreamers who toil in the low-budget trenches. Sometimes, imagination exceedstalent and the results can be magical." (SXSW)

"Like such kindred spirits in quantity over quality as Tyler Perry and Joe Swanberg, James Franco has made a crapload of movies. Sooner or later, he was bound to deliver a good one. " (via Variety)

A24 will release The Disaster Artist in select theaters on December 1, 2017 before going wide on December 8.
