James Franco, Seth Rogen make a bad movie in 'Disaster Artist' trailer

The Disaster Artist

Expectations are high for James Franco's The Disaster Artist, a film within a film about the creation of Tommy Wiseau's The Room-an infamous cult favorite that's widely considered the best-worst movie of our generation. Fans of The Room will certainly relish the humor, but The Disaster Artist has so much more to offer than jokes and James Franco doing a weird accent. It's hard to imagine an audience more primed to love a movie about The Room, the legendarily bad movie whose astronomical badness has inspired a devoted cult-or one more prepared to recognize its flaws, should Franco and co. have fucked it up.

In 2013, Greg Sestero co-wrote The Disaster Artist, a book about the experience of making The Room, and it is the most awesome piece of literature ever written. "I just wanted to do my own thing", he said. Franco leads the cast, alongside Dave Franco and Seth Rogen. But they keep cashing his checks, secure in the knowledge that it's unlikely the project will ever be completed, let alone seen. Franco looks pretty much pitch flawless and word is he even stayed in character on set for the entire time. James Franco plays Wiseau and Dave Franco plays Sestero. Josh Hutcherson and Zac Efron play actors in The Room.




The Disaster Artist is about that ownership and how the path there came from the friendship between Wiseau and Sestero. The film received its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival yesterday, where it received both a standing ovation and positive reviews from critics; take a look at the trailer below along with a new poster...
