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 elder Franco directs an adaptation of Sestero’s book by scribes Scott Neustadter and Michael H Weber. Supporting players include Alison Brie, Zoey Deutch, Zac Efron, Ari Graynor, Melanie Griffith, Josh Hutcherson, Jason Mantzoukas, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Seth Rogen, Sharon Stone, Jacki Weaver, and many more, including cameos from J.J. Abrams, Judd Apatow, Kristen Bell, Zach Braff, Lizzy Caplan, and Bryan Cranston, among others. Not only does this look hilarious, it appears to be really touching as well. The Full Trailer again shows us the ineptitude of Wiseau and the struggle that making every moment of The Room was, but it also includes the humanity of Sestero and Wiseau’s relationship. The Ed Wood vibe is even [...]
