Watch the trailer for 'The Disaster Artist', the film about the making of 'The Room'


Hopefully, fingers-crossed, you’ve seen The Room, because it is absolutely glorious, it is a wondrous piece of life-affirming art. I love it.

If you haven’t seen it, just look at this:

Now tell me you don’t want to watch the rest of it, even though you don’t know what it’s about. I’ve seen it more than once, I don’t even really know what it’s about and I want to watch it again. Essentially, it’s horrendously made nonsense; amateur, incomprehensible, hilarious shite. It’s great.

It’s probably the most famous bad-good movie, and so it was only a matter of time before a film was made about it – in this case, courtesy of James Franco and Seth Rogen. Their “making-of” film is being called The Disaster Artist, named after lead actor Greg Sestero’s book about his experience working on the doomed film. Dave Franco plays Sestero and his brother James plays the writer and director of The Room, the peculiar Tommy Wiseau.

Anyway, the trailer was released today, so why the hell not check it out you hoodlums? Here it is:

Looks funny, but I don’t rate Franco's impression too well. It’s mega easy to do. Listen, I’m doing it right now, funny isn’t it?

Anyway, the film’s out in December. You should go and see it. And if you haven’t seen The Room yet, the Prince Charles Cinema in Leicester Square (aka the best cinema in London) always show it, sometimes even with Tommy Wiseau in attendance. Check out upcoming screenings here.
