James Franco's The Disaster Artist Has the Best Trailer of the Year

TIFF 2017: The Disaster Artist Directed by James Franco 'The Disaster Artist' Trailer: James Franco Makes His 'Ed Wood' in 'The Room' Retelling

James Franco is nowhere to be found in the film - he's completely embodied the role, disappearing into Wiseau's eccentricities without resorting to broad impressions.

"Because even though at the centre of this film is this really bad movie, I put so much of myself into this". We shot at locations that I had hung out at when I was a struggling actor coming up in L.A., and just their story of trying to make it, I can relate to. The movie-industry regulars Wiseau drafts to work on his passion project, led by Seth Rogen as script supervisor and frequent shadow director Sandy Schklair, are aghast at Wiseau's weird methods; at one point, he insists on shooting an alley scene on a set rather than in the identical real alley behind the studio, because "This real Hollywood movie".

"The Disaster Artist" received a standing ovation when it first screened as a work in progress at the South by Southwest Film Festival in March. Franco's Tommy repeatedly insists that "Acting is truth", and in the post-screening Q&A, the real Sestero described the movie as "terrifyingly true".

And a young, well, younger Mbappe has said he idolised a PSG hero: "When I was younger, Ronaldinho was my idol", via ESPN . If Friday's match is any indication then there is another troika developing - CMN (Cavani, Mbappe and Neymar ).

The behind-the-scenes creative team on The Disaster Artist was led by director of photography Brandon Trost, production designer Chris Spellman, costume designer Brenda Abbandandolo, and editor Stacey Schroeder.

Either way, it's clear that Franco has something special tucked up his sleeve with The Disaster Artist, and it should go without saying that there is some serious awards potential here, especially with a cast that also includes Dave Franco, Seth Rogen, Josh Hutcherson, Zac Efron, Alison Brie, Ari Graynor, and Jacki Weaver.

Jason Guerrasio of Business Insider echoes the statement, going so far as to suggest the performance could be Oscar worthy, "With incredible detail by James Franco of not just playing Wiseau, but making the reenactments of "The Room" - from the crappy set design and costumes to how very bad lines were delivered - is incredible".
