If you want to see even MORE of Tommy Wiseau, "The Room" might be released in 3D
Talk about a move on up! Tommy Wiseau’s The Room, which is widely referred to as “the Citizen Kane of bad movies” and the best-worst film ever made, could soon be released in additional formats, including 3D.
Wiseau — who is the writer, director, lead actor, and producer of The Room — recently created a Twitter account and has been active ever since. Aside from helping to promote The Disaster Artist and predicting boyband reunions, he regularly answers fan queries. And when someone asked him if The Room would ever be released in high definition, he revealed that indeed, it would. And in 3D too!
But with Tommy, you never know if he’s actually being serious or just trying to crack a joke — like, it’s so hard to tell — so take his statement with a grain of salt. If it happens to be true though, then The Room might just garner another absurd record…
And this time, it’s for having the *weirdest* trajectory in movie history.
When it was first released in 2003, the film reportedly only grossed $1,900 after being shown in two theaters. But over the years, it slowly reached cult status for being, well, spectacularly awful. Now, because of The Disaster Artist, the award-winning biopic which chronicles the making of The Room, Wiseau’s masterpiece has finally reached Hollywood success.
Because of this renewed interest, Tommy might be serious about the 3D edition after all! (We can’t be the only ones wondering what it would look like in 3D, right???) Although we aren’t particularly excited about seeing those, um, graphic sex scenes in the format, the TV-flinging scene might just make up for it.
For initially being regarded as a monumentally terrible film to being permanently embedded in pop culture, The Room is doing well for itself, don’t you think? That’s rhetorical, because OF COURSE IT IS.
