James Franco's The Disaster Artist Is Amazingly Absurd - Watch The Trailer!

Adjust Comment Print

Tommy Wiseau's The Room is supposedly the worst movie ever made, but it paved the way for James Franco to make his first true masterpiece.

Almost seven months after The Disaster Artist was first shown to audiences at the SXSW Film Festival in March as a work-in-progress screening, the completed version of writer-director James Franco's latest effort had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival last night, where it received rave reviews immediately afterward. You'll still be laughing throughout, but you'll be charmed by the film's sweetness and affability. With production on The Room underway, Greg and Tommy's friendship begins to crumble underneath the strain of Tommy's insecurities. However, his legacy lives on as James Franco now has potential for award nominations by portraying Wiseau in The Disaster Artist. We're hoping the movie is as great as the cast.

For Dave, The Disaster Artist finally "felt like the right time and the right project and the right dynamic" to accommodate both brothers' talents in the same film.

Roma have never won the Champions League , with their best run coming in the 1990-91 season when they finished as runners-up. I'm very calm about this, I trust my players. "That isn't a good feeling", Hazard added.


By keeping the focus on the emotions of its lead characters, The Disaster Artist finds a surprising honesty that goes far beyond simple appreciation for The Room.

The Room, as you're probably well aware by now, falls into that pantheon of movies-so-bad-that-they're-good. The movie will hit theaters on December 1. Rather than exist as the butt of the joke, he decided to make the joke his own. James pressed Wiseau to see what he thought about his portrayal in The Disaster Artist, and Wiseau just laughed: "Oh, come on!"

Prior to its TIFF debut, "The Disaster Artist" premiered to rave reviews at SXSW, where Franco was labelled early as a probable Best Actor contender.
