WEEK: STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI! Having taken her first steps into a
larger world in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Rey continues her epic
journey with Finn, Poe, and Luke Skywalker in the next chapter of the
saga. Directed by Rian Johnson, starring Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, and
Mark Hamill. Rated PG13. Only screening in 2D at Merrill's Roxy.
PLAYING: THE DISASTER ARTIST. With 'The Disaster Artist,' James
Franco transforms the tragicomic true-story of aspiring
filmmaker and infamous Hollywood outsider Tommy Wiseau - an
artist whose passion was as sincere as his methods were
questionable - into a celebration of friendship, artistic
expression, and dreams pursued against insurmountable odds.
Based on Greg Sestero's best selling tell-all about the making
of Tommy's cult-classic disasterpiece 'The Room' ("The Greatest
Bad Movie Ever Made"), 'The Disaster Artist' is a hilarious and
welcome reminder that there is more than one way to become a
legend - and no limit to what you can achieve when you have
absolutely no idea what you're doing. Directed by James Franco,
starring James Franco, Dave Franco, and Ari Graynor. Rated R.
