When The Disaster Artist arrives in theaters this December, Tommy Wiseau will finally receive something akin to the notoriety he’s always wanted. Thanks to James Franco, the aspiring filmmaker behind what came to be known as the worst movie ever made will be perceived in a more sympathetic light. As the new trailer for The Disaster Artist promises, the world (or all the people who see this movie, anyway) will finally know the name Tommy Wiseau.
If you missed out on the cult phenomenon that is The Room, fear not: A24 is here to ensure that you are fully schooled on Tommy Wiseau’s disasterpiece and thus better able to appreciate James Franco in The Disaster Artist. The studio is hosting screenings of The Room nationwide next week, and the best part? They’re free. Better still? Those who attend the screenings will receive invites to early screenings of The Disaster Artist, too.
