The Disaster Artist Trailer 1

The first movie trailer for The Disaster Artist (2017) from New Line Cinema.

Yes, the first look at the movie those of not fortunate enough to go to SXSW have all been waiting for is finally here. While the trailer will obviously resonate most with people who have actually seen The Room, the train wreck of a film that it’s based on, it’s strong enough, to say nothing of funny enough, on its own to appeal to the uninitiated.

Being a teaser, the promo only shows one scene: Tommy Wiseau’s (James Franco) repeated, pathetic attempts to deliver the infamous “oh hai Mark” monologue and his crew’s frustration with his inability to do so. Yet this is all we need to see as the scene not only uncannily recreates the original scene but captures the unintentionally comedic nature of it and the thought (or lack thereof) that went into it. Franco is hysterically oblivious as Wiseau, forgetting his lines, butchering his lines (the part where he enters the set and declares “I hit her!” is almost certainly the funniest part of the promo), and not entering because he can’t hear the AD call action. It must be said that the Pineapple Express veteran doesn’t exactly sound like the Room director, but he has captured more than enough of his character and eccentricities to make me laugh and get me eager to see The Disaster Artist when it comes out later this year.

James Franco‘s The Disaster Artist (2017) also stars Dave FrancoAlison Brie, Zoey Deutch, Lizzy Caplan, Zac Efron, Bryan CranstonDylan Minnette, Kristen Bell, Eliza Coupe, Seth Rogen, Josh Hutchinson, Sharon Stone, Adam Scott, and Judd Apatow.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
