Ready for another kooky James Franco film? Then prepare for Why Him? 

WHY HIM? stars JAMES as Laird Mayhew, an eccentric Silicon Valley billionaire who gained fame and fortune by creating the mega-hit game APE ASSASSINS

Over the holidays, Ned (Bryan Cranston), an overprotective but loving dad and his family visit his daughter at Stanford, where he meets his biggest nightmare: her well-meaning but socially awkward Silicon Valley billionaire boyfriend, Laird. The straight-laced Ned thinks Laird, who has absolutely no filter, is a wildly inappropriate match for his daughter. The one-sided rivalry and Ned’s panic level escalate when he finds himself increasingly out of step in the glamorous high-tech hub and learns that Laird is about to pop the question.

 And what makes the movie even cooler is the fact that Laird’s game actually exists! 

Check out what the gaming industry’s biggest names, like Blizzard Entertainment’s Michael Morhaime and Ubisoft’s Aymar Azaizia, have to say about living-legend Laird Mayhew and his 800-pound gorilla of a game, APE ASSASSINS!
