In the upcoming psychological thriller The Institute, James Franco portrays a 19th-century doctor with some unconventional ideas about wellness. And unfortunately for his newest patient, the cure might be worse than the ailment.

EW has an exclusive look at the film’s trailer, which opens with a grief-stricken young woman named Isabel Porter (Allie Gallerani) checking herself into the Rosewood Institute after her parents’ untimely death. She soon encounters the charismatic but slightly creepy Dr. Cairnes (Franco), who makes her a tempting promise.

“I can give you the freedom you desire,” he says, “but you will need to trust my methods — unorthodox though they may seem.”

Beginning with an exploration of pain, which the good doctor calls “the most primitive of feelings,” his experiments spiral into brainwashing, obsession, and violence.

Franco co-directed The Institute, which opens March 3, with Pamela Romanowsky. The cast also includes Eric Roberts, Tim Blake Nelson, and Lori Singer.

Multi-hyphenate James Franco, no stranger to classic American literature, has taken his first directorial shot at moving John Steinbeck to the screen with an adaptation of In Dubious Battle. Originally published in 1936, the novel is the lesser-known title in Steinbeck’s unofficial Dustbowl Trilogy — which also includes Of Mice And Men and The Grapes Of Wrath — but has been hailed as among his strongest works. It’s a study of man’s struggle against himself set during a Great Depression labor dispute whose themes are still relevant today.

James Franco and Seth Rogen, the creative duo behind such cult comedy hits as The Interview and This is the End, are Hollywood bound in the first trailer for Zeroville, a biting satirical period romp hailing from Franco himself.
It’s pitched as his most ambitious directorial effort to date, and after clocking eyes on the extensive first trailer, we’re inclined to believe those claims. Featuring a host of regular faces in Jacki Weaver, Megan Fox, Craig Robinson, Will Ferrell and Danny McBride, Zeroville is set against the Tinsel Town of ’69 where Ike “Vikar” Jerome stars out on a journey that offers up tragedy and discovery in equal measure.
Placing a laser focus on celebrity culture and all things Hollywood, Seth Rogen is on board as a character known as Viking Man – “gatekeeper to all the right parties, a cigar-chomping surf hippie; Vikar’s eccentric Hollywood guide” – while the casting sheet reveals the larger-than-life personalities of Rondell, (Will Ferrell, Dotty (Jacki Weaver), Financier (Danny McBride) and femme fatale Soledad (Megan Fox). There’s also a Wim Wenders cameo buried in today’s first-look.

Hazing is gross. Hazing is stupid. Hazing is something stunted man-children do when they’re not busy cultivating their woefully misguided world views. Thankfully, a mainstream movie is finally going to tackle the frat problem with some help from stars Nick Jonas and James Franco.

GOAT, written by Pineapple Express director David Gordon Green and helmed by Andrew Neel, centers upon two brothers (Nick Jonas and Ben Schnetzer) who both pledge the same fraternity. Based on the memoir of the same name by Brad Land, the film explores the impact of hazing through the eyes of an assault victim and its impact on family, friends, and beyond.

Franco, who co-produced the film under his own Rabbit Bandini Productions banner, also stars. The film has garnered widespread acclaim since screening at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. In a 2005 talk with Random House surrounding the memoir’s release, Land (portrayed by Schnetzer in the film) said his intent was to shine a light on the very real issue of violence in general, not solely in fraternity circles.

“GOAT is a story, first and foremost, one I tried to tell in a true and different way,” Land said. “I never set out to write a polemic, but I do hope people might read it and think a little more about the ways we hurt each other. Violence, in any form, is something each of us deals with—sanctioned, random, public, personal—they’re all expressions of the same base thing.”

GOAT hits theaters and digital platforms Sept. 23.

Bryan Cranston is the protective dad in Why Him? while James Franco plays the loaded Internet tycoon who’s dead set on marrying the wrong guy’s daughter, and Cranston’s not having any of it.

The new trailer shows James Franco out-James Franco-ing himself with a nightmare of a character. This dude has all the modesty of Franco’s role in The Interview plus zero filter when it comes to sharing intimate hot tub stories with his girlfriend’s family. Not even a back tattoo of the fam or a custom bowling alley for the father can win over a dad who really wants to bring the boyfriend down.

If nothing else, watch for the fake vintage L.L. Bean-style dad photos of Bryan Cranston.

Why Him? hits theaters Dec. 25, 2016. Watch the trailer above.

As a writer stymied by past success, writers block, substance abuse, relationship problems and a serious set of father issues, Elliott’s cracked-out chronicle of a bizarre murder trial amounts to less than the sum of its parts. Not long into the 2007 trial of programmer Hans Reiser, accused of murdering his wife, the defendant’s friend Sean Sturgeon obliquely confessed to several murders (though not the murder of Reiser’s wife). Elliott, caught up in the film-ready twist and his tenuous connection to Sturgeon (they share a BDSM social circle), makes a gonzo record of the proceedings. The result is a scattered, self-indulgent romp through the mind of a depressive narcissist obsessed with his insecurities and childhood traumas.


About three months ago, Dealey Plaza near the West End was pretty much shut down thanks to J.J. Abrams and James Franco. They were filming for a Hulu thriller series, 11.22.63, based on Stephen King’s book by the same name. You were either really mad at all the traffic it was causing or you were really excited to catch a glimpse of the movie star.

This week, the official trailer for the eight-episode series hit the web. By the looks of it, Franco, who plays Jake Epping, walks in a closet because some man told him to, and time travels back to 1960. Man Who Owns The Closet wants Epping to go back in time and stop the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Like any good human being, Epping does this and the closet land is a bit like Narnia. Except not at all. More like Dallas in the 1960s.

The trailer offers this little tidbit: “The past doesn’t want to be changed.” It also shows a car wreck into a telephone booth, a little bit of conspiracy (“I don’t know whether Oswald is the man who did it”), and Franco falling for a beautiful blonde, who we hope doesn’t end up being his mother. She says, “Everything you say is a lie,” because he’s not even from her decade, but she doesn’t know that yet! Oh, and Josh Duhamel shows up at some point to punish Epping for breaking some rules.

The mini-series premieres Presidents Day, Feb. 15 — on Hulu, of course. You can get a head start and just read the book.

Ahead of its US release next month, the first trailer has arrived online for writer-director Gabrielle Demeestere’s upcoming drama Yosemite starring James Franco.

It’s the fall of 1985. The intertwining tales of three 5th grade friends, Chris, Joe and Ted, unfold in the suburban paradise of Palo Alto, as the threat of a mountain lion looms over the community.
