Official Trailer Released for THE DISASTER ARTIST, Starring James Franco

The Full Disaster Artist Trailer Will Tear You Apart Lisa

We recommend seeing it just so you can see how bad it really is.

The Room, released in 2003, is often cited as one of the worst films of all time.

The film is based on Sestero's memoir, also titled The Disaster Artist, co-written by Tom Bissell. James Franco is nowhere to be found in the film - he's completely embodied the role, disappearing into Wiseau's eccentricities without resorting to broad impressions. Bringing the same amount of heart they brought to The Spectacular Now and The Fault in Our Stars, the script has an incredibly amount of empathy for Wiseau. We're hoping the movie is as great as the cast. The world rejects Wiseau, and that rejection further deepens how much he needs Greg. Dave Franco plays Sestero in the film.

Expect this to be a serious awards season contender. In it, Sestero gets very real about how insane it was to make the movie with Wiseau, who is perhaps the best character to ever exist, real or fictional.

However, Ben Travers from Indie Wire also points out that, "Viewers need to be well-versed in "The Room" to fully appreciate "The Disaster Artist", which derives its entertainment value from a self-awareness that lurks beneath every scene".

Sometimes life imitates art, and sometimes art imitates, well, The Room. The adaptation is expected to be loyal to its source material, showing the troubled filming of The Room, the difficulties Sestero and Wiseau experienced when they struggled to break into Hollywood, and the unusual friendship that the two share up until today. Rather than exist as the butt of the joke, he chose to make the joke his own. But The Disaster Artist prints the legend, and that's more fun than the truth.
