James Franco Is Torn Apart In The Hilarious Trailer For The Disaster Artist

Sometimes life imitates art, and sometimes art imitates, well, The Room.

At long last, A24 released the first full trailer for The Disaster Artist, James Franco's movie about the making of the "Citizen Kane of bad movies," Tommy Wiseau's 2003 cult film The Room.

Franco directs and stars as Wiseau, a Polish immigrant who moved to Hollywood to become the next big thing. Although his overly dramatic posturing impresses fellow acting student Greg Sestero (Dave Franco), it doesn't go over with studio executives, forcing Wiseau to write, direct, and star in his own masterpiece. 

Franco, who directed The Disaster Artist in character as Wiseau, nails the accent and the trailer is worth watching if only to hear him say, "Hi, doggie." He explained his method-directing to Entertainment Weekly: "His accent is the most infectious kind of accent to do," he said. "You just want to do it! Everybody wants to do it! And it brought everybody closer to their own characters, having to interact with me in that way."

Seth Rogen, Alison Brie, Zac Efron, and Bryan Cranston co-star in the flick, based on the book by Sestero and Tom Bissell. The movie arrives Dec. 8, and you can check out the poster below.

Meanwhile, take a look at the untold truth of The Room.
