James Franco’s The Disaster Artist Trailer

the-disaster-artist-f72066

A24 has released the first The Disaster Artist trailer. Directed by James Franco, the film follows the making of Tommy Wiseau’s The Room, the infamous cult film that’s frequently cited as one of the worst movies ever made (not to be confused by the 2015 film Room with Brie Larson).

Apparently,  The Room is so bad that it has a cult following and showings of the film are enjoyed with crowd participation, much like the Rocky Horror Picture Show.  A rough cut of The Disaster Artist was screened at SXSW to positive reviews.  In addition to James Franco, it stars Dave Franco, Seth Rogen, Alison Brie, Zac Efron, Josh Hutcherson and Jacki Weaver.

The plot is described as, A delightful tribute to the joy and madness of making movies, The Disaster Artist follows the outrageous adventures of eccentric filmmaker Tommy Wiseau and his best friend, actor Greg Sestero. These two endearing misfits move to L.A. and try to live the Hollywood dream by making their very own feature film, but end up embarking on a wildly unpredictable and hilariously unforgettable production. Leading to one of the most infamous, bizarre, and beloved midnight movies of all time, The Room.

The Disaster Artist opens in limited release on December 1st and opens wide on December 8th.

Ava DuVernay’s A Wrinkle in Time Gets a Trailer


The first trailer for Ava DuVernay’s adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s novel A Wrinkle in Time is here and the internets is abuzz. 
From Screen Rant:
A Wrinkle in Time is technically a children’s story, but it’s a compelling tale enjoyed by many adults – and as such, the movie should be a strong movie suitable for the whole family. It’s original, too, which makes a change from Disney’s long line of remakes and reimaginings. A Wrinkle in Time tells the story of Meg Murry and brother Charles Wallace, who travel through space and cross dimensions via a ‘wrinkle in time’ to find their missing scientist father, with the help of a mysterious Tesseract. The book is the first in a series, so if this live-action adaptation does well, we could see more Wrinkle in Time movies to come.

And Oprah is in it. 

A Winkle in Time is set to be released on the Oscar unfriendly date of March 9, 2018.
