‘The Disaster Artist’ Trailer: James Franco Recreates a Disaster
‘The Disaster Artist’ Trailer: James Franco Recreates a Disaster
The Disaster Artist premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last night (we’ll have a full review later), and while you won’t be able to see James Franco’s ode to mercurial filmmaker Tommy Wiseau until December, you can watch this great new trailer courtesy of A24. The star-studded film (featuring pretty much every actor you expect to see in a movie with Franco and Seth Rogen) already has a lot of positive buzz, and although it probably won’t earn any Oscars (well, maybe?), its awards season release date doesn’t feel all that strange.

Nicole Kidman Is Searching for Adventure in This ‘Queen of the Desert’ Trailer
If you read up on the life of explorer Gertrude Bell, it’s abundantly clear that this is a woman whose story should be told. In 2003, The Guardian devoted an entire article to the influence her cartography had on the modern Middle East, with Bell practically drawing the country border of Iraq by her lonesome. And now audiences will be able to explore her legacy with Queen of the Desert (via Deadline), a new film starring Nicole Kidman and both written and directed by the legendary Werner Herzog.

James Franco Starts an Apple Revolution in the ‘In Dubious Battle’ Trailer
Here’s a question for you: does James Franco continue to make juvenile comedies as a way of subsidizing his serious work, or does he make serious movies to provide himself the latitude to make juvenile comedies? I honestly have no idea. For every The Night Before, there seems to be an As I Lay Dying; for every Why Him?, a Child of God. While many actors and aspiring filmmakers try to find their niche and consolidate their power, Franco seems to be split pretty evenly among his penchant for comedy and his desire for drama. He could win an Oscar or a Razzie at any given moment.

Netflix Will Stream ‘The Interview’ Starting on Saturday
If you haven’t watched Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s ‘The Interview’ yet, either because you’re too cheap to spend $6 to rent it online, or you were worried North Korean hackers would catch you buying it and share your private emails slagging your boss with the world (I’m sorry Mike! When I called you “a giant goober,” I meant that in an affectionate way, like Goobers candy! Which everyone loves!) you are in luck. As part of their quarterly letter to shareholders, Netflix announced that they will “exclusively” offer the comedy to its U.S. and Canadian customers starting this Saturday, January 24. Sorry Netflix Netherlands! You’re out of luck for now.

‘The Interview’ to Begin Streaming Online Starting Today; $6 to Rent, $15 to Buy

‘True Story’ Trailer: Jonah Hill and James Franco Team Up and Get Dramatic
‘True Story’ Trailer: Jonah Hill and James Franco Team Up and Get Dramatic
You’ve got to hand it to Jonah Hill and James Franco, both of whom manage to effortlessly glide between comedic and dramatic roles. It’s not easy to be a popular goofball and an Oscar nominated “serious” actor, but somehow these two have managed to pull it off. Their latest film, ‘True Story’ is unique in that it is the first project to cast them together in dramatic roles. When you watch the first trailer for film, you can be forgiven for expecting them to drop the dramatic stare-downs and start riffing with each other at any moment.

Sony Hackers Threaten Terrorist Attacks Against Theaters Showing ‘The Interview’
The Sony hacking scandal has proven to be a massive headache for a company that’s already been having a rough few years. And now, this increasingly weird story has taken an even darker turn: the hackers are threatening to launch terrorist attacks against theaters showing ‘The Interview’ this Christmas. Seriously.
SNL Sketch Gets Cut
SNL Sketch Gets Cut
Set in St. Louis, the sketch starts with Beck Bennett as a news anchor for “News 4” (which is the CBS affiliate in St. Louis) relaying a serious presentation of current events, right before he hands it off to two morning show hosts (played by Kenan Thompson and Cecily Strong) who have an obnoxious show with an obnoxious theme song called ‘Rise and Smile.’ First, there’s no way this sketch should have been cut, but that’s a pretty obvious position to take.
‘The Interview’ Red-Band Trailer: Seth Rogen and James Franco Are Gettin’ Rowdy in North Korea
‘The Interview’ Red-Band Trailer: Seth Rogen and James Franco Are Gettin’ Rowdy in North Korea
Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are back! The new red-band 'The Interview' trailer shows the duo, who brought us such classic debauchery as 'Superbad,' 'This Is the End' and 'Pineapple Express,' are already starting up some drama with their Kim Jong-un assassination story. If that premise alone isn't enough to make you gasp, how about some NSFW talk of "Matthew McConaughey goat f***," and getting "f***** by RoboCop"?
