Watch James Franco Celebrate 'The Room' in Wild 'Disaster Artist' Trailer

"The Disaster Artist. Warner Bros

It's hard to think of anything that can be more of a effort by an actor than intentionally acting poorly. You loved movies. You didn't live tweet films, or watch bad movies ironically, or EVER forget to keep your Letterboxd account up to date.

"The Disaster Artist" is an extremely entertaining look at two friends (Franco playing Wiseau and Dave Franco as Sestero) who decide to make their own movie after the constant rejection at acting auditions.

More than a decade after The Room first hit cinemas, the story behind the cult-favorite's creation is about to be shown to general audiences around the world through a film that was directed by its star, James Franco.

He is particularly complimentary of James Franco's performance as Wiseau: "Franco achieves what could become his most iconic role - surpassing even "Spring Breakers" rapper Alien - as Tommy Wiseau, worldwide man of mystery". But in Hollywood, a group of stars championed the movie, showing their appreciation for the effort that went into making the indie and applauding Wiseau's unique filmmaking choices.

There are several scenes of Franco yelling "Stella!"; he also attempts to impress the real-life Judd Apatow with a recitation of Hamlet's "To be, or not to be" soliloquy in a restaurant, prompting Apatow to say, "It's not going to happen for you, not in a million years".

Reviews for The Disaster Artist have been generally positive. The energy of the room just heightens the experience.

With a movie called The Disaster Artist, you need a leading man unafraid to embrace his inner eccentric.

A United Kingdom release date for The Disaster Artist is yet to be announced.
