James Franco's Movie About the Worst Movie Ever Made Actually Looks Pretty Hilarious

  • BuzzSugar
Typically, a tagline for a movie sings its praises, but Seth Rogen and James Franco's The Disaster Artist is anything but typical. The buddy comedy duo has teamed up yet again to tell "the true story of one movie so bad it became infamous," aka Tommy Wiseau's 2003 cult drama, The Room. Screenings of The Disaster Artist at SXSW racked up positive critiques, and if the rest of the movie is anything like the hilarious teaser and first two full-length trailers, we're even more excited. Franco stars as Wiseau alongside brother Dave Franco, Alison Brie, Bryan Cranston, Dylan Minnette, Zoey Deutch, Kristen Bell, and Zac Efron. The release date is set for Dec. 1, so why don't you check out The Room for yourself in the meantime? (Just kidding.) First Official Trailer: Teaser Trailer:

James Franco is Tommy Wiseau in new trailer for The Disaster Artist

Ahead of its release next month, a new trailer has arrived online for writer-director James Franco’s upcoming biographical comedy drama The Disaster Artist focusing on Franco’s role as Tommy Wiseau, director of The Room. Check it out here…

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 cult-classic disasterpiece The Room (“The Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made”), The Disaster Artist is a hilarious and welcome reminder that there is more than one way to become a legend—and no limit to what you can achieve when you have absolutely no idea what you’re doing.

Five Reasons to See Rebel in the Rye

Five Reasons to See Rebel in the RyeFive Reasons to See Rebel in the RyeAmanda Wood10/11/2017 2:31:00 Pm

Biopics are a dime a dozen these days, with everyone even remotely famous throughout history getting their life immortalized onscreen. Rebel in the Rye is slightly different than your run-of-the-mill historical biopic, because it deals with a very reclusive and mysterious subject: author J.D. Salinger.

Nicholas Hoult dons some brown contacts and shows off his seemingly endless versatility as Jerry Salinger, a bold and ambitious young man whose life is forever changed by his time as a soldier and his brush with fame. Chances are you had to read Catcher in the Rye as part of your high school English curriculum, so you’ll be familiar with Salinger’s most famous work and only novel. However, there’s much more to the author’s story, and it’s beautifully brought to life by Kevin Spacey,

Movie Review – Rebel in the Rye (2017)

Rebel in the Rye, 2017.

Written and Directed by Danny Strong.

Starring Nicholas Hoult, Zoey Deutch, Kevin Spacey, Sarah Paulson, Lucy Boynton, Victor Garber, Hope Davis, Amy Rutberg, and Brian d’Arcy James.

Synopsis:

The life of celebrated but reclusive author, J.D. Salinger, who gained worldwide fame with the publication of his novel, The Catcher in the Rye.

Throughout the early going of Rebel in the Rye (written and directed by Danny Strong, two-time Emmy winner for the hit television show Empire and co-writer for a few of the Hunger Games films, also based on the biography J.D. Salinger: A Life) it seems that the movie is looking to avoid plunging into the abyss that often comes from taking a historical figure and stretching the coverage of that particular person so far across a feature-length picture, that in the end there’s an unshakable feeling that all that’s being

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.

‘Rebel in the Rye’ Tops Weak Indie Box Office
With the Venice Film Festival now complete and the deals at Toronto just getting started, this weekend was a slow one for the indie box office. The lone standout this weekend was IFC’s J.D. Salinger biopic “Rebel in the Rye,” which made $44,280 from four screens for a PSA of $11,070. Written and directed by Danny Strong, the film stars Nicholas Hoult as J.D. Salinger, as he navigates his relationship with socialite Oona O’Neill (Zoey Deutch) while writing his most famous work, “Catcher In The Rye.” Sarah Paulson and Kevin Spacey also star. The film received a 33 percent rating on Rotten.

Win Passes To The Advance Screening Of Rebel In The Rye In St. Louis

Opening in theaters September 15th is Rebel In The Rye.

The world of legendary writer J. D. Salinger is brought vividly to life in this revealing look at the experiences that shaped one of the most renowned, controversial, and enigmatic authors of our time.

Set amidst the colorful backdrop of mid-20th century New York City, Rebel in the Rye follows a young Salinger (Nicholas Hoult) as he struggles to find his voice, pursues a love affair with famed socialite Oona O’Neill (Zoey Deutch), and fights on the frontlines of World War II. It’s these experiences that will inform the creation of his masterpiece, The Catcher in the Rye, bringing him overnight fame (and notoriety) and leading him to withdraw from the public eye for the rest of his life.

Costarring Kevin Spacey and Sarah Paulson, Rebel in the Rye offers a tantalizing window into the life and

J.D. Salinger gets the biopic treatment with “Rebel in the Rye”

Perhaps no author fascinates the world like J.D. Salinger does. Whether it’s if there will ever be a movie version of The Catcher in the Rye or actual details of the man’s life, he captivates. A recent documentary called Salinger shed some light on him, but now a biopic is hitting theaters in Rebel in the Rye. It comes out this week and will probably struggle to stand out in the crowd. It had a fairly muted debut back in January at the Sundance Film Festival and it stands to reason that it’ll be pretty much the same thing here in general release. It’s a shame too, as Salinger deserves more. The film is a biopic about the aforementioned J.D. Salinger (Nicholas Hoult), a young man and aspiring writer who would go on to write one of the all time great novels in The Catcher in the Rye.

The Best of the First Two Thirds of 2017

2017 is just flying by! As we have now wrapped up August and are charging headfirst into the month of September, I wanted to once again put a bow on everything that’s come before the impending fall festival season. That way, it could focus us more clearly on the awards contenders to come, all the while remembering the hopefuls from the parts of 2017 we’ve completed. As such, today I’m putting out my list of the best of the first third of the year so far. Below you’ll see what the first eight months have brought us, including some films seen at festivals as well as early year releases that the precursors will surely forget, sadly. I don’t have any titles that I’m embargoed on right now, so this is as close to an exhaustive look at everything that’s hit screens between January 1st and today as possible.

Chloe Grace Moretz on Growing Up, Hillary Clinton and Hollywood Sexism

Chloe Grace Moretz on Growing Up, Hillary Clinton and Hollywood Sexism
One year ago, the Democratic National Convention was buzzing with celebrities like Meryl Streep, Lena Dunham, and Elizabeth Banks. But none of them had closer proximity to the candidate than Chloë Grace Moretz, who took the stage 45 minutes before Hillary Clinton.

“It was one of the happiest moments of my life, that’s for sure,” recalls Moretz, 20, on a recent afternoon, sitting with her two-month-old pug, Ruby. The actress had such a plum spot at the DNC because organizers were hoping she’d reach first-time millennial voters.

Moretz has something in common with her multitasking generation: She knows what it’s like to burn out as a teenager. After appearing in dozens of movies since she was a pint-size kid, Moretz realized at 18 that she needed a yearlong break. She left her home in Los Angeles for a solitary vacation in Tulum, Mexico, embarked on a few road trips, dated and spent time with her friends — a
