Hello Dave fans! These past days have been very good for us Dave fans, as Dave and The Disaster Artist co-stars were at Toronto International Film Festival to promote the movie (which premiered last night, September 11). I have decided on writing this post on Dave and The Disaster Artist at the film festival, which you can read bellow and under the cut! A masterpost has also been made on the interviews – and you can watch it here.
For those of you who might not know much about the movie, The Disaster Artist is an American biographical comedy film starring, directed and co-produced by James Franco. The film depicts the meeting and early friendship of the actor Greg Sestero (played by Dave Franco) and Tommy Wiseau (played by James Franco), the actor, writer and director behind the 2003 cult film The Room, a film often hailed as the Citizen Kane of bad movies, the troubled making of it and their respective careers after the surprising success of the film. A24 has distribution rights to the film, which is set to be released in theaters on December 8, 2017.
Dave’s first appearance at the festival was on September 9, when he attended HFPA & InStyle’s TIFF Celebration with Alison Brie. The adorable couple posed for pictures before walking inside and chatting with other celebrities.
The moment we have been waiting for since the first clip got released, and especially more now that the movie is getting excelent feedback at Toronto International Film Festival– The Disaster Artist trailer has been released! In the trailer we get a glimpse of Dave’s character, Greg Sestero, and the main plot. The movie is set to be released in December 8, 2017 and we can’t wait to watch it!
Toronto International Film Festival has just announced its Midnight Madness line up and we are very happy to learn that The Disaster Artist is one of the movies to have its screening at the festival! The festival is set to take place in Toronto, Canada and goes from September 7-17. The movie, directed by James Franco, is a tribute to eccentric filmmaker Tommy Wiseau (played by James Franco) and his best friend, actor Greg Sestero (played by Dave Franco), whose notoriously awful film The Room has become one of the most beloved cult classics of all time.

Based on Greg Sestero’s best-selling tell-all about the making of Tommy Wiseau’s cult-classic disasterpiece The Room (“The Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made”). The Disaster Artist, starring James Franco, Dave Franco, and Seth Rogen. In Theaters December 1.
James Franco’s acclaimed comedy The Disaster Artist finally has a release date, but it won’t be distributed by the studio that made it.
A24, the company behind Ex Machina and Spring Breakers, has made a deal to take over domestic distribution of the movie, setting a Dec. 8 opening date. In the pact, New Line/Warner Bros. retains international distribution, with those dates still to be determined.
Disaster Artist is a making-of movie about one of the worst films of all time, the 2003 drama The Room. Franco directed the comedy as well as stars in it with brother Dave Franco, Seth Rogen, Alison Brie, Josh Hutcherson and others. The movie screened as a work-in-progress at the 2017 South by Southwest Film Festival, where it received an extended standing ovation and glowing reviews.
But despite the raves, New Line had not dated the movie for release, leading many to speculate that it would shop the movie to another company.
A24 appears to be a perfect blend of distributor and material, and the company is slotting it in the middle of awards season. It will start with a limited engagement Dec. 1 before going wide a week later.
In Disaster Artist, James Franco portrays the eccentric Tommy Wiseau, helmer and star of The Room, which developed a strong cult following, including among celebrities. Wiseau had no filmmaking experience when he set out to write, direct and produce the pic, which centers on a man named Johnny whose fiancee, Lisa, cheats on him with his best friend, Mark.
