Tommy Wiseau disaster artist review

Tommy Wiseau and his cult favorite The Room are about to become even more popular thanks to James Franco‘s The Disaster Artist, which chronicles the making of the 2003 film. Early buzz on The Disaster Artist has been very positive, with /Film’s own Jacob Hall calling it a “hilarious and sincere tribute to one of the worst movies ever made.” But there’s one review that probably takes precedence over the rest: Tommy Wiseau’s. So what did Wiseau think of the film? You can find out by seeing the Tommy Wiseau Disaster Artist review below.

gerald's game stephen king

Stephen King has been terrifying audiences since the 1970s, penning one best-selling horror novel after another, his name becoming synonymous with horror fiction in the process. Film and TV adaptations of King’s work have been prevalent just as long as he’s been publishing it, but recently there seems to be a Stephen King boom. More and more King-related projects are finding their way to the big and small screen. And that was before the adaptation of King’s It raked in boffo box office. With It making all that dough, expect even more Stephen King adaptations to be announced soon.

To help you keep track of all the upcoming King projects, either completed or in development, I’ve compiled this handy list. It’s worth noting that not all of these films will ever see the light o day. Indeed, some of them have already entered the infernal halls of development hell, and who knows when they shall ever escape. Then again, now that King is big business at the box office, there’s a good chance titles that have been stuck in development hell for ages will suddenly find themselves fast tracked.

Without further adieu, here is every upcoming Stephen King adaptation.

‘The Deuce’ Season 2 is Coming

the deuce season 2

HBO’s latest series The Deuce is relatively new, having only aired two episodes so far. It seems the reaction to those two episodes was apparently good enough for HBO, because today they announced that the show has been renewed: The Deuce season 2 is officially happening.

How did a self-funded, terribly made movie like The Room get such a cult following? By becoming a staple of the Los Angeles skyline.

The Room aggressively advertised itself by erecting a massive billboard overlooking Highland Avenue in Hollywood showing simply Tommy Wiseau‘s face and a cryptic phone number. The billboard stayed up for whopping five years and was so notorious that passerby were surprised when it was finally taken down. But in the spirit of a former Los Angeles landmark, The Disaster Artist brought the billboard back.

the disaster artist trailer

Could director and star James Franco win an Oscar for a movie about the worst movie ever made? It’s totally possible if the official The Disaster Artist trailer is anything to go by.

The teaser for The Disaster Artist just gave us a small taste of the comedy gold entrenched in the film based around the making of the 2003 low-budget movie The Room, the nonsensical brainchild of the probably-human, maybe-a-vampire Tommy Wiseau. But the full trailer gives us more than just bloopers — now we can dive into the mind of Wiseau and his co-dependent relationship with best friend and writer of The Disaster Artist memoir, Greg Sestero. If you dare.

the deuce trailer

Update: The pilot episode of The Deuce is now streaming on HBO Go several weeks ahead of its official debut. If you want to get a taste of the show now, this is your chance. You can also watch a new trailer below.

Police corruption, prostitution, twins, and lots and lots of nudity. Yep, sounds like HBO.

It’s a wonder that the cable network, known for its salacious prestige dramas, had not tackled the porn industry before. But it seems like it took The Wire creator David Simon, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and James Franco playing twins for HBO to turn its lens toward the rise of the porn industry in the 1970s with The Deuce.

If there’s one opinion we really want to hear about The Disaster Artist, it’s from the director of The Room. Considering Tommy Wiseau lived it, he probably has more than a few thoughts on how actor-director James Franco has depicted him and his beloved bad movie. After seeing the adaptation of actor Greg Sestero‘s book at the SXSW Film Festival, he only took issue with .1% of the movie.

Below, find out Wiseau’s thoughts on The Disaster Artist.

the vault trailer

“Crime does not pay,” the trailer for The Vault ham-fistedly declares. But it’s probably a very accurate description for the heist thriller-turned-horror-movie that is The Vault.

In James Franco‘s one-millionth project this year (does the guy never sleep?), he stars as a mild-mannered bank manager with a mustache who finds his bank being robbed by two sisters (Taryn Manning and Francesca Eastwood). But this this isn’t just a nuts-and-bolts thriller as the tables are turned when Franco’s manager unlocks the true horrific nature of The Vault.

I remain curious to see if regular audiences will flock to see a movie about the making of a film so bad it has earned a strong cult following over the years. But I can tell you this much: The Disaster Artist is hysterical and weirdly moving and not the movie you think it is. James Franco‘s heartfelt and deranged comedy about bromance, jealousy, and seriously ill-considered filmmaking decisions is one of the most entertaining movies I’ve seen in 2017.

And now, the first The Disaster Artist trailer is here to sell this movie to everyone else.

James Franco seems to be continuing the trend of Hollywood actors making a splash on the small screen by playing double with his role as two brothers in The Deuce, HBO’s upcoming TV series from The Wire and Treme creator David Simon.

Franco is joined by Academy Award nominee Maggie Gyllenhaal in the prestige drama series about possibly one of the least prestigious (but oh so tantalizing) topics: the porn industry. Deuce chronicles the rise of the porn industry in 1970s New York and how the famous porn film Deep Throat came to be.
