The Disaster Artist Finds Greatness in The Room's Terribleness

James Franco's The Disaster Artist premiered in the Midnight Madness section of the Toronto Film Festival last night, and as the sun comes up so does the first full trailer. He's a big movie star.

The Disaster Artist is an adaptation of Greg Sistero's tell-all memoir of the same name, which chronicled the creation of Hollywood enigma Tommy Wiseau's cult movie, The Room.

Franco looks incredible in the role of Wiseau, and seems to have nailed his voice and mannerisms perfectly. The world rejects Wiseau, and that rejection further deepens how much he needs Greg. They understand kinship, having a shorthand, and lifting the other person up when they're feeling down. Rogen and Dave Franco co-starred in two Neighbors comedies, while Rogen and James Franco have worked together in Freaks and Geeks, Knocked Up, Pineapple Express, This is the End, Interview and Sausage Party.

By keeping the focus on the emotions of its lead characters, The Disaster Artist finds a surprising honesty that goes far beyond simple appreciation for The Room.

Fellow keeper Mignolet said: "I've had it before when you have to jump into people's feet - and you have to be fearless ". He came back long flight, 15 minutes here, 15 minutes there, three weeks without training.


Filmed like an inspirational biopic about a heartwarming rags-to-riches story, The Disaster Artist will show Wiseau's rise to unconventional fame in the most delightful way it could.

The film is out in the United Kingdom in December and should arrive in the United Kingdom not long afterwards.

A United Kingdom release date for The Disaster Artist is yet to be announced.
