‘The Disaster Artist’ Trailer is Something You Never Thought You Needed

The Franco brothers (James and Dave) are finally working together in a film and this one is an interesting one. The Disaster Artist is a biography “dramedy” based on the true story of The Room filmmaker Tommy Wiseau and about the making of the questionable film. This all may sound confusing or interesting but hopefully this new trailer (posted below) will help you out with coming to a conclusion.

Here is a side by side of Franco and Wiseau.

Ironically enough, James Franco wrote, directed and starred in the film much like Tommy Wiseau did with The Room. The film also has a huge cast made up of some very notable names like Alison Brie, Seth Rogen, Judd Apatow, Kristen Bell, Kate Upton, Zac Efron, Lizzy Caplan, Bryan Cranston, Adam Scott, Sharon Stone, Zach Braff, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Hannibal Buress and even Star Wars director J.J. Abrams. Tommy Wiseau will also

Full Trailer drops for “The Disaster Artist”

Yesterday morning, a gift from the movie gods was bestowed upon us all. Hot off of the film’s highly praised reception at the Toronto International Film Festival, a Full Trailer was released for The Disaster Artist. As I said back when the Teaser debuted, among modern day cult films, The Room stands tall. Not since The Rocky Horror Picture Show has a midnight movie captured audience adoration like Tommy Wiseau’s “masterpiece”. Even in Hollywood, it’s an iconic picture. As such, it was never a huge shock that a look at its inception was going to receive the cinematic treatment, especially after an acclaimed book about its making hit shelves. What’s surprising is that A-list talent has surrounded it from top to bottom, including A24 distributing. The Disaster Artist made waves at SXSW before Tiff, and now will continue to build buzz in advance of its December release date.

Watch a McLovin Super Fan Get the Ultimate Superbad Surprise
McLovin may be a dumb made up name, but ten years removed from Superbad, people still really connect to the character that was brought to life by Christopher Mintz-Plasse. What was his very first movie role went on to become one of the most iconic characters from a modern comedy. So much so that fans will print out McLovin signs at music festivals to carry around. But what happens when the actor who actually played McLovin shows up and sees the person carrying that sign? Wonder no longer. It happened.

Daily Mail was able to capture the pretty priceless moment. Superbad star Christopher Mintz-Plasse, who brought Fogel, aka McLovin, to life, was attending a festival and enjoying himself. He was sporting a tank top, beard, cap and sunglasses, so he was pretty unrecognizable. That's what made it so great when he approached a fan who made a McLovin sign, which

The Big Sick and more true stories written by the subject for the big screenThe Big Sick and more true stories written by the subject for the big screenAdriana Floridia5/15/2017 10:35:00 Am

Films based on a true story tend to hit a little harder.

Watching a story unfold and knowing that it's not a work of fiction, but the real life experience of an actual human being, makes everything that occurs that much more impactful. It's incredibly common for films to be based on true life for that reason; it is an instant emotional investment beyond what most fiction can provide. It doesn't happen incredibly often, but sometimes we get the treat of not just watching a work of art, but someone's personal life story being displayed in their own words.

This summer, we are seeing one of these instances with The Big Sick, a film co-written by Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon,
