Fans of the adult film industry and/or sensationalized crime are no doubt anticipating James Franco‘s latest foray into the depths of gay subculture, King Cobra, the retelling of the 2007 murder of gay porn studio Cobra Video owner Bryan Kocis by two escorts, Harlow Cuadra and Joseph Kerekes.

But they may be slightly underwhelmed by this just-released clip, in which Christian Slater stares into a mirror as costar Garrett Clayton, playing a very believable Brent Corrigan, lies to his mom about his “film internship.”

OK, but the action must be coming any second now.

Slater applies a face mask, and Corrigan takes a shower, then tells Mom he got to “sit in the editing room for, like, 10 minutes today.” Is that what they’re calling it these days?

Any second now, we’re sure there’s going to be some tension, some suspense…anything?

Nope. Nada.

We’re just going to go out on a limb here and suggest there might be a better way of stirring up interest in this film.
