The Disaster Artist image reveals James Franco’s Tommy Wiseau

14 February 2017 1:40 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

New Line Cinema has revealed an image from this year’s upcoming The Disaster Artist, an adaptation of the novel of the same name detailing the troubled production of Tommy Wiseau’s The Room, which often gets labelled as the worst movie ever made. The image gives us a first look at James Franco as the titular disaster artist Wiseau, along with his brother Dave Franco, who is playing Greg Sestero, a real-life friend of Wiseau who played Mark in The Room.

The Disaster Artist is set to have its world premiere at the SXSW film festival next month. The star-studded cast of the film also includes Seth Rogen (The Night Before), Zac Efron (Neighbors), Kate Upton (The Other Woman), Ari Graynor (The Sopranos), Jacki Weaver (Silver Linings Playbook), Andrew Santino (Sin City Saints), Hannibal Buress (Neighbors), Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2), and a cameo from Tommy Wiseau himself. »

James Franco Is The Disaster Artist In New Photo For Upcoming Drama

13 February 2017 1:35 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Often referred to as the “Citizen Kane of bad movies,” Tommy Wiseau’s The Room wrote its name in cinema’s history books for all the wrong reasons back in 2003. A spluttering mess of plot holes and cringe-worthy dialogue, Wiseau’s self-confessed passion project – one which he wrote, directed and starred in – has since gone on to become something of a cult classic, and soon James Franco and Co. will introduce moviegoers to the story behind the so-called misguided masterpiece.

Its title? The Disaster Artist, a big-screen rendition of Greg Sestero’s novel of the same name. Those already familiar with Sestero’s source material will know all too well that the author pulls no punches in his autopsy of The Room, which is hardly surprising given he co-starred in the cult original as conflicted best friend Mark. Fast forward to 2017 and it is Dave Franco that will be playing the part of Mark, »

Lego Batman Is The Hero Hollywood Needs Right Now

11 February 2017 8:44 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Henry Bevan on why Lego Batman is the hero Hollywood needs right now…

The Joker is Batman’s greatest enemy, and he has been almost since the start. Batman may have the best roster of rogues (rivalled only by Spider-Man), but nothing gets Bat-fans excited more than a tussle with the Clown Prince of Crime. A mere whisper of his presence, like the ending of Batman Begins, is enough to whip up a frenzy. Chris McKay and the folks over at Warner Bros. Animation understand this. They also understand how ridiculous the Batman mythology is. This is, after all, a man dressed as a bat fighting a man dressed as a clown.

In The Lego Batman Movie, Batman and the Joker are jilted lovers (“I like to fight around”). The Joker, voiced by Zack Galifianakis, only wants Batman’s (Will Arnett) attention. It is a spot-on interpretation that encapsulates and laughs at their relationship. »

It looks like the Lego movie universe is going to be three for three with this one. Released: 22nd September (U.S.)/ 13th October (Irl/U.K.) Synopsis: In this big-screen Ninjago adventure, the battle for Ninjago City calls to action young Master Builder Lloyd, »
