James Franco Is Dynamite in the Hilarious Full-Length Disaster Artist Trailer

The Disaster Artist

On Tuesday, Franco released the first full-length look at The Disaster Artist, and it's quite possibly the best trailer of the year.

James Franco and his brother/fellow actor Dave Franco are finally working together in the same film - and not like what they did in The Broken Tower.

With The Disaster Artist, James Franco transforms the tragicomic true-story of aspiring filmmaker and infamous Hollywood outsider Tommy Wiseau-an artist whose passion was as honest as his methods were questionable-into a celebration of friendship, artistic expression, and dreams pursued against insurmountable odds.

"Because even though at the centre of this film is this really bad movie, I put so much of myself into this".

I'm not a huge fan of The Room, either on its own merits or the cult that has built up around it. Franco leads the cast, alongside Dave Franco and Seth Rogen. Franco's Tommy repeatedly insists that "Acting is truth", and in the post-screening Q&A, the real Sestero described the movie as "terrifyingly true". As Wikipedia describes it, the movie is a melodramatic love triangle among an amiable banker named Johnny (Wiseau), his deceptive future wife Lisa (played by Juliette Danielle), and his conflicted best friend Mark (played by Greg Sestero). The enduring culture of appreciation around the movie exists in a world where there's no danger of taking The Room at face value, and The Disaster Artist does away with that tension altogether.

Reviews for The Disaster Artist have been generally positive.
