Incredibly Funny Trailer For James Franco's THE DISASTER ARTIST
The long awaited first trailer has been released for James Franco's new film The Disaster Artist. The movie is based on the true story of the making of the legendary bad film The Room. This movie is so bad that it's known as “the ‘Citizen Kane’ of bad movies.”
Franco plays filmmaker Tommy Wiseau in the movie, the man behind the cult classic film and it looks like he gives a wonderful and hilarious performance! I've heard great things about this movie and I'm looking forward to seeing it for myself.
The movie is based on the book, The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside The Room, the Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made, and it also stars Dave Franco and Seth Rogen. The book description:
Nineteen-year-old Greg Sestero met Tommy Wiseau at an acting school in San Francisco. Wiseau’s scenes were rivetingly wrong, yet Sestero, hypnotized by such uninhibited acting, thought, “I have to do a scene with this guy.” That impulse changed both of their lives. Wiseau seemed never to have read the rule book on interpersonal relationships (or the instructions on a bottle of black hair dye), yet he generously offered to put the aspiring actor up in his LA apartment. Sestero’s nascent acting career first sizzled, then fizzled, resulting in Wiseau’s last-second offer to Sestero of costarring with him in The Room, a movie Wiseau wrote and planned to finance, produce, and direct—in the parking lot of a Hollywood equipment-rental shop.
Wiseau spent $6 million of his own money on his film, but despite the efforts of the disbelieving (and frequently fired) crew and embarrassed (and frequently fired) actors, the movie made no sense. Nevertheless Wiseau rented a Hollywood billboard featuring his alarming headshot and staged a red carpet premiere. The Room made $1800 at the box office and closed after two weeks. One reviewer said that watching The Room was like “getting stabbed in the head.”
The Disaster Artist is set to be released in theaters on December 1st. Watch the trailer below and tell us what you think.
