Comic-Con is going on right now, and in case you were wondering, pretty much all of Hollywood is there. And many of them are wearing weird costumes!

Filmmaker Bjorn Floki first became acquainted with James William Ross IV when he won “RuPaul’s Drag Race” — as drag fabulous Tyra Sanchez. He later came to know Ross as not just a crowd-pleasing performer, but also as a father. Ross is the father of a six-year-old boy named Jeremiah, and navigates his double life as a parent and drag queen with deft skill and humor. Floki is working on a documentary about the pair — and about Ross’s journey — in order to shed light on how non-traditional families are just as magical as conventional mom/dad/kid units.

James Franco stars as in this prequel to “The Wizard Of Oz,” playing a magician who gets transported to a strange world via tornado (you know how it goes).

James Franco playing a guy with a God complex? You don’t say! Check out the trailer above.
