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

15 hours ago | Age of the Nerd | See recent Age of the Nerd news »

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 »

Dave Franco talks becoming a toy ninja in The Lego Ninjago Movie

Dave Franco talks becoming a toy ninja in The Lego Ninjago MovieDave Franco talks becoming a toy ninja in The Lego Ninjago MovieBob Strauss - Cineplex Magazine9/20/2017 10:00:00 Am

Dave Franco sits on a metal chair in a stripped-down Beverly Hills hotel room looking as happy as he can be. All that stuff you read about the actor’s infectious smile being the most winning in the business? Not fake news.

You won’t actually get to see that gregarious grin in Franco’s latest movie, however. In The Lego Ninjago Movie he merely provides the voice of animated brick boy Lloyd, a troubled teen who leads a squad of ninjas against the evil Garmadon who wants to destroy their ancient/modern/futuristic island city.

But even though you won’t get a gander at the 32-year-old star of Neighbors, 21 Jump Street and Now You See Me in the animated feature, »

The television industry, from Emmy presenters and nominees, to other TV industry members, helped raise funds to support their industry colleagues and friends who benefit from Mptf’s charitable programs and services such as financial assistance, crisis counseling, care giving support and of course the legendary retirement facility in Woodland Hills that is “home” to television and film veterans alike.

“The health and social service needs of our community continue to grow, especially during these last few years. The cost of delivering much-needed care can be overwhelming to Mptf’s resources, which makes events like the Evening Before more important now than ever,” said Jeffrey Katzenberg, »

Harry Dean Stanton, ‘Big Love,’ ‘Twin Peaks’ Star, Dies at 91

15 September 2017 3:26 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Harry Dean Stanton, the actor with a gaunt, bedraggled look who labored in virtual obscurity for decades until a series of roles increased his visibility, including his breakthrough in Wim Wenders’ “Paris, Texas,” died of natural causes Friday in Los Angeles. He was 91.

The actor was also known for his roles in “Twin Peaks,” “Big Love,” “Pretty in Pink,” and “Repo Man.”

He had a high-profile role as manipulative cult leader Roman Grant on HBO polygamy drama “Big Love,” which ran from 2006-11, and recently appeared as Carl Rodd in the “Twin Peaks” revival on Showtime.

His most recent film, “Lucky,” about an atheist who comes to terms with his own mortality, is set to be released by Magnolia on Sept. 29.

In 1984, when he turned 58, he not only starred in the Wenders’ “Paris, Texas” — his first role ever as leading man — but in Alex Cox’s popular cult film “Repo Man.” (That »

Sir Elton John To Be Honored At Elton John AIDS Foundation New York Fall Gala

13 September 2017 8:45 AM, PDT | Look to the Stars | See recent Look to the Stars news »

On Tuesday, November 7, 2017, the Elton John AIDS Foundation (Ejaf) will host its annual New York Fall Gala at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City.

This year’s gala commemorates the Foundation’s 25th year and honors Founder Sir Elton John. President Bill Clinton, Governor Andrew M.

Full Trailer drops for “The Disaster Artist”

13 September 2017 8:41 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

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. »

Tiff 2017: ‘The Disaster Artist’ Review: Dir. James Franco

12 September 2017 2:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Disaster Artist review: James Franco directs and leads the cast as Tommy Wiseau, the legendary modern filmmaker who made The Room, the cult movie often referred to as ‘The Worst Film Ever Made’. This film however, is one of the best of the year.

The Disaster Artist review by Paul Heath.

The Disaster Artist review

If you’ve not heard of the 2003 movie The Room, then you’re absolutely missing out. Made for a reported $6 million, Tommy Wiseau’s film was initially a box-office disaster, hence the title of the dramatisation of its making, James Franco’s The Disaster Artist, which comes to the Toronto International Film Festival following a world premiere at the South by Southwest festival earlier this year.

A24 Films has released the full trailer for writer-director James Franco’s new film The Disaster Artist, which sees Franco taking on the role of The Room helmer Tommy Wiseau alongside Dave Franco, Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, Bryan Cranston, Alison Brie, Zoey Deutch, Lizzy Caplan, Kristen Bell, Josh Hutcherson, Sharon Stone, Adam Scott, and Zach Braff.

With The Disaster Artist, James Franco transforms the tragicomic true-story of aspiring filmmaker and infamous Hollywood outsider Tommy Wiseau—an artist whose passion was as sincere as his methods were questionable—into a celebration of friendship, artistic expression, and dreams pursued against insurmountable odds. Based on Greg Sestero’s best-selling tell-all about the making of Tommy’s »

See James Franco as Tommy Wiseau in Full 'The Disaster Artist' Trailer

12 September 2017 7:18 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Nobody respect my vision!" This is going to be an instant classic. A24 has debuted the full-length official trailer for James Franco's The Disaster Artist, the film telling the story of infamous filmmaker Tommy Wiseau and his worst-movie-ever-made The Room (released in 2003). This just premiered at the Toronto Film Festival to a standing ovation. The film stars James Franco, who also directs, as Tommy Wiseau, the awkward mastermind behind the awful-but-beloved film. The impressive ensemble includes Seth Rogen, Alison Brie, Zoey Deutch, Zac Efron, Dave Franco, Bryan Cranston, Kristen Bell, Eliza Coupe, Josh Hutcherson, Sharon Stone, Adam Scott, Jason Mantzoukas, Kate Upton, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Ari Graynor, with an appearance by Judd Apatow. This looks amazing, actually. Franco looks pretty much pitch perfect and word is he even stayed in character on set for the entire time. Have fun.

‘The Disaster Artist’ Trailer: James Franco Makes His ‘Ed Wood’ in ‘The Room’ Retelling

12 September 2017 6:01 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

One of the most popular films of the century thus far, although perhaps not having anything to do with standard quality metrics, is  Tommy Wiseau’s The Room. Released nearly 15 years ago, the oddity has become a cult hit, garnering regular midnight screenings and a fanbase like few others. Now, the story of how it came to be has been made into a film by none other than James Franco.

The Disaster Artist recently came to Tiff and ahead of a December release from A24, the first full trailer has arrived. The making-of The Room tale is seen through the eyes of Greg Sestero (Dave Franco), who served as a line producer on the film and played Mark, of “oh, hi Mark” fame.

Based on the book of the same name by Sestero and Tom Bissell, The Disaster Artist features a loaded cast that includes Seth Rogen, Josh Hutcherson, Zac Efron, »

Beauty vs Beast: Woods, Men

11 September 2017 12:15 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Jason from Mnpp here with this week's "Beauty vs Beast" -- I usually try to choose older movies for this series because it's more likely y'all have seen them and have an opinion. That is unless we're talking about great big cultural juggernauts - those are usually safe. It Comes at Night isn't an old movie, and it wasn't so much a cultural juggernaut either, but here we are anyway. The film had a stellar ad campaign (thanks to A24, the king of stellar ad campaigns these days) so it did get some chatter at the time of its release, but it ultimately only made just under 20 million bucks. This is no Avatar.

And yet here on the eve of its release on blu-ray tomorrow I still want to highlight the movie, and I have faith that a good portion of the Tfe audience, who already knew Trey Edward Shults' amazing Krisha, »

Beauty vs Beast: Super Cat Scratch Fever

4 September 2017 9:46 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Jason from Mnpp here with today's new "Beauty vs Beast" -- I finally got my boyfriend to watch Wonder Woman this weekend (it's finally out on VOD) and he was as surprised as I was by how much he enjoyed it (I was skeptical given DC's lousy track-record and he was skeptical because he doesn't like superhero movies). But he had one complaint that I very much got - there are a couple of full-body CG shots where Diana's hopping around where the effects look pretty goony, or as my boyfriend put it, "That looked like Catwoman." 

Which got me thinking about Catwoman. The Halle Berry one, I mean. Which isn't as dire for me as it is for most - I actually enjoy the 2004 dud, albeit for camp value. But you kind of get the feeling that the film's director Pitof (whose career was, probably rightly, murdered by the film) intended the camp value, »

Steven Soderbergh: 'Film-making is like sex. If I accidentally give someone else pleasure, that's fine'

23 August 2017 8:42 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The indie kingpin said he was quitting directing for oil painting. But he’s making more films than ever. He talks about his new heist caper Logan Lucky, starring Daniel Craig as a redneck – and his plan to topple the studio system

Steven Soderbergh is showing me a collage he’s been making. Half-finished, it sits on a table in his New York office. Composed entirely of movie stars in character, the work gives pride of place to Robert De Niro as a mohawked Travis Bickle in Taxi Driver. He’s flanked by River Phoenix, John Belushi, Sacha Baron Cohen, Dennis Hopper and Catherine Deneuve. Further afield we have Jack Nicholson, Keanu Reeves and Sharon Stone.

Soderbergh started making collages a few years ago: bored with his library of film books, he simply started cutting them up. “It’s problem-solving,” he says. “You pull an image out. You start looking around. »

‘Mosaic’: Steven Soderbergh Reveals Plot Details About His Mysterious ‘Branching Narrative’ Project at HBO

20 August 2017 9:31 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Now that he’s returned to feature filmmaking, Steven Soderbergh already has his next project in mind. That should come as little surprise given how prolific the “Logan Lucky” director is, but “Mosaic” sounds ambitious even for him. In a new Film Comment interview, Soderbergh calls his mysterious HBO project starring Sharon Stone and Garrett Hedlund a “branching narrative” that will allow viewers to decide which character’s perspective they want to follow.

Sound confusing? Here it is from Soderbergh himself:

“It’s a branching narrative piece. Branching narratives have been around forever, but technology now allows, I hope, for a more elegant, intuitive form of engagement than used to be possible. We spent a lot of time on how you touch this thing. I wanted to make sure that it was beautiful and simple, so »

Steven Soderbergh Reveals Details for Mysterious HBO Project ‘Mosaic’

When Steven Soderbergh came out of retirement to direct Logan Lucky, fans were excited enough, but in true Soderbergh fashion he started lining up intriguing project after intriguing project. The notoriously fast-paced filmmaker moved from Logan Lucky right into directing a mysterious project called Mosaic for HBO with Sharon Stone and Garrett Hedlund. Rumors swirled that it was going to be some sort of “choose your own adventure”-style narrative, but Soderbergh quickly squashed that as untrue. But the fact remains we know pretty much nothing about what Mosaic is or how it will work. Until now. In a … »
