“The Disaster Artist”, directed by, produced and starring James Franco, premiered on December 1 to critical acclaim, with a 95% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
The movie tells the story of what is widely considered the worst movie ever made – “The Room” – and the filmmaker behind the movie, Tommy Wiseau. Throughout the years, the film has become a cult classic, with frequent midnight screenings throughout the country.
“The Disaster Artist” stars a surprising number of notable Hollywood actors in addition to the Franco brothers, including Seth Rogen, Sharon Stone, Zac Efron, and Jason Mantzoukas.
Though it pokes fun at the insanity that went into the making of the film, it also takes an affectionate look at the creation of “The Room”. Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero, the stars of the original film, are also included in bit parts in “The Disaster Artist”. The film has so far opened in limited release, but it will go into wide release on December 8, so check it out in a theater near you!
