The first trailer and poster have arrived for the comedy film, The Disaster Artist. James Franco directed and stars in this behind the scenes look at the creation of one of the worst films in history: 2003’s The Room. Variety’s Scott Foundas described The Room as “a movie that prompts most of its viewers to ask for their money back — before even 30 minutes have passed.” Showbiz Junkies contributing writer Beth Accomando in her review for KPBS said, “It’s so very bad that it becomes riveting.”
In addition to James Franco, The Disaster Artist‘s cast includes Dave Franco, Seth Rogen, Ari Graynor, Alison Brie, Jacki Weaver, and Josh Hutcherson. The film’s set to arrive in theaters on December 1, 2017.
The Plot: Based on Greg Sestero’s best-selling tell-all about the making of Tommy Wiseau’s cult–classic disaster piece The Room (“The Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made”), The Disaster Artist is a hilarious and welcome reminder that there is more than one way to become a legend – and no limit to what you can achieve when you have absolutely no idea what you’re doing.
