The bizarre subculture of dime-store Christmas movies seems oddly pervasive this year, and has not gone unnoticed at SNL.

When The Disaster Artist arrives in theaters this December, Tommy Wiseau will finally receive something akin to the notoriety he’s always wanted. Thanks to James Franco, the aspiring filmmaker behind what came to be known as the worst movie ever made will be perceived in a more sympathetic light. As the new trailer for The Disaster Artist promises, the world (or all the people who see this movie, anyway) will finally know the name Tommy Wiseau.
