For those like me who are big fans of Tommy Wiseau's disastrous melodrama The Room, we've been eagerly anticipating The Disaster Artist since it was first announced. James Franco stars in and directs this adaptation of Greg Sestero's first-hand account of what it was like to work on such an insane film.
While the first trailer focused on the humor and behind-the-scenes absurdity, this new one clearly shows the film's ambitions for major end-of-year awards. It also never mentions the name of the movie they're making, so A24 is definitely trying to pick up some people who are fans of James Franco and co-star Seth Rogen, but may have no clue what The Room is.
So whether you just like comedy or have a long-term relationship with loving Tommy Wiseau's masterpiece, this film is going to be right up your (fake) alley.
The Disaster Artist opens in limited release on December 1 before going wide on December 8.
