James Franco Sells ‘The Disaster Artist’ in This First Trailer

James Franco will flip the cinematic universe on its head this winter when he is nominated for an Oscar playing Tommy Wiseau in The Disaster Artist.

The irony here is that Wise made what is famously called the worst movie of all time, The Room. It’s a cult classic, and The Disaster Artist chronicles the bizarre making of this movie. If this trailer is any indication, this one might be kinda brilliant, no?…

When this was first announced it felt like another weird James Franco stunt. He’s great at those sometimes, and other times the movies dissipate immediately. This looks different than what I had expected. It looks oddly emotional, it seems to capture Los Angeles in the early 2000s, and James Franco is clearly giving it his all.

I’ve never seen The Room, but I am fully aware of its presence and I saw that rooftop scene everyone has seen so I feel okay about it.

The Disaster Artist also stars James’s brother Dave Franco, Seth Rogen (of course), and Alison Brie. It will be here for your eyes to see December 1.
