JAMES FRANCO’S ‘THE DISASTER ARTIST’ EMERGES AS SAN SEBASTIAN FRONTRUNNER
Just one day out from San Sebastian Film Festival’s prize announcement, and with two competition titles yet to screen, James Franco’s “The Disaster Artist” leads Spanish critics’ polls as the best competition movie at the fest, the highest profile movie event in the Spanish-speaking world.
That could be the kiss of death. San Sebastian juries’ verdicts have sometimes been vastly out of synch with local reviewers. But the film’s San Sebastian reception goes some way to confirming the critical standing of the movie, which made multiple Top 10s at the Toronto Film Festival. Not that Franco has it all his own way at the Spanish film event. His film is only slightly ahead of Constantin Popescu’s family tragedy “Pororoca,” which “hits with direct dramatic force,” according to Variety, and Antonio Mendez Esparza’s coming-of-age tale “Life and Nothing More,” another Toronto Top 10 movie

James Franco lends his rugged good looks to be the face for Coach’s latest fragrance campaign
James Franco trades in his Gucci membership and joins the Coach family. The American actor fronts the brand’s new fragrance campaign. Traveling to New York for the advertisement, Franco connects with photographer Steven Meisel. He rocks a leather moto jacket as he leans against a vintage Plymouth Valiant. Franco mirrors the fragrance’s timeless cool, which pairs a heart of spicy cardamom and coriander with fresh notes of green nashi and kumquat.
