First Trailer for 'The Disaster Artist' Starring James Franco as Wiseau

18 July 2017 8:02 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Oh, hi Mark!" A24 has unveiled the first trailer for the film The Disaster Artist, a fictional account of the making of the "best worst movie ever made" - The Room, as directed by Tommy Wiseau. The film stars James Franco, who also directs, as Tommy Wiseau, the awkward mastermind behind this disaster of a movie. This first trailer focuses entirely on one scene and Wiseau's attempts to perform the line properly. 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. Whew, what a cast. I've got a good feeling this is going to be something special, perhaps as good as Burton's Ed Wood (also about the making of a "worst film"). This first premiered at the SXSW Film Festival. »

Teaser Trailer for “The Disaster Artist” suggests a laugh riot

18 July 2017 7:40 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

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, as it’s known, made waves at SXSW and now has a Teaser Trailer to showcase, well in advance of its December release date. You can see the Teaser below, but first, a dive into Wiseau’s world! For those of you who aren’t aware of the movie in any notable way, here’s a quick little primer. It’s a look »

Watch a McLovin Super Fan Get the Ultimate Superbad Surprise

3 July 2017 10:45 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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 »

That Time Seth Rogen’s Mom Came Up With a ‘Statutory Rape Joke’ in ‘Superbad’ (Audio)

19 June 2017 11:27 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

In a recent visit to “The Howard Stern Show,” Seth Rogen explained that one of the classic jokes in “Superbad” was actually his mom’s idea. One of the ongoing jokes in the teen movie is the fact that Fogell (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) carries around a fake I.D. the whole time with the moniker McLovin.’ No first or last name, just McLovin.’ Near the end of the movie, Fogell is finally getting laid, but ends up getting arrested for statutory rape because of that fake I.D.

A24 will lend their unique talents to “The Disaster Artist”

16 May 2017 8:34 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Go figure, we live in an age where a distributor can actually cause excitement just by hitching their wagon to a certain film. In a short span of time, A24 has become veritable tastemakers in the industry, putting forth challenging and entertaining work that few others could successfully sell. Last year, they pulled off a small miracle in getting Moonlight the Best Picture win at the Oscars (all the more impressive considering the competition) Yesterday, it was announced that they’ve acquired James Franco’s adaptation of The Disaster Artist, a loving look at the making of The Room. Hot off of a tremendous preview screening at SXSW, this is a strong acquisition, as well as a perfect match. If there’s any company that can do justice to this project, it’s A24. For those who aren’t aware of the movie, here’s a primer. It’s a »

The Big Sick and more true stories written by the subject for the big screen

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, »

‘Dragons: Race to the Edge’: 6 Reasons the ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ Netflix Show Isn’t Just For Kids

20 March 2017 12:20 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

DreamWorks Animation has established itself as a studio which consistently produces stunning animated films, and perhaps no more so than with its “How to Train Your Dragon” film series. The franchise boasts endlessly beautiful imagery, as well as incredibly lovable characters and intense action. All of these elements can be found in spades in the Netflix spinoff series “Race to the Edge,” as the show expands on these facets and digs deep into what makes the franchise so great.

As with most animated properties, the main demographic for the “Dragons” franchise is children. However, the creators of both the films and TV series have shown that this franchise isn’t exclusively for children; rather, it’s conveniently made accessible for children, while proving entertaining for older audiences as well. Whether you’re a fan of animation, the franchise, looking for a fun fantasy series to binge for a couple of weekends, »

28 Best Drunk Scenes in Film

17 March 2017 2:46 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, arguably the biggest drinking holiday of the year, we looked at some of the best drunk moments to grace the silver screen. From Humphrey Bogart’s classic, heartbreaking “of all the gin joints” speech in “Casablanca,” to the utterly ridiculous scene in “Team America” when the puppets spew their guts up, here are the 28 best drunk scenes on film.

Leaving Las Vegas” — Booze Run

Although not a traditional “drunk scene,” the opening scene of “Leaving Las Vegas” — which sees Nicolas Cage’s Ben Sanderson dancing through a liquor aisle piling his cart sky high with booze — is as good a prelude to this list as any.

Arthur” — Introducing Princess Gloria

Dudley Moore’s Arthur spends the majority of the film tipping back drinks, but his introduction of “Princess Gloria” to his aunt and uncle at a restaurant — and his insistence that Rhode Island could »
