“The Room,” which came out in 2003, is known as one of the worst movies ever made. But over the years, it has developed a cult following because people love how bad it is.

And one of those people is James Franco, who directed “The Disaster Artist,” based on the best-selling non-fiction book about the disastrous making of the movie. The book (also called “The Disaster Artist”) was written by one of its stars, Greg Sostaro. 

In the movie, which comes out in theatres December 1, Franco plays director, writer, and star Tommy Wiseau. His brother, Dave Franco, plays Sostaro. The film’s cast also includes Seth Rogen, Lizzy Caplan, Bryan Cranston, Zac Efron, Alison Brie, Kristen Bell, and many more. 

The film’s first teaser finally came out on Tuesday, and it looks hilarious. The teaser highlights Wiseau’s inability to remember lines (even the simplest ones), and features the Franco brothers and Seth Rogen.
