    Watch: Emma Roberts Brings James Franco's Prose to Life in New 'Palo Alto' Trailer

    Review: James Franco's 'Maladies' With Catherine Keener & David Strathairn Is Alienating And Dull

    Carrying the dubious distinction of being a film that managed to try our patience after just five minutes, “Maladies” is for us best summed up in one word: wasteful. It is wasteful of the considerable talents of a fabulous cast, wasteful of a pleasingly off-kilter visual approach, and wasteful of ou...

    James Franco Reportedly Starring In Adaptation Of Harmony Korine's 'A Crack Up At The Race Riots'

    While the Oscar nomination never came through for James Franco and his delightfully deranged turn in Harmony Korine's "Spring Breakers," it was some of the best work the actor has ever done. And it would seem that Franco isn't done being inspired by Korine's particular sensibilities.

    Trailer of the Week: James Franco Plays James Franco in Deranged Comedy 'Maladies'

    Before the Trailer, We Thought: A story about a successful actor who is forced to retire at a young age because of a mental illness seems like a sort of joke for someone like James Franco, who at his young age has done more than most do in a lifetime.
