Bill Murray rocks another trailer for Rock The Kasbah

Every once in awhile, all a movie really needs to do is cut Bill Murray loose and let him do his thing. Granted, we've gotten quite a bit of that lately, but come on... Is anyone really complaining? Barry Levinson seems to have done something similar for his latest film ROCK THE KASBAH, in which Murray tries to get back to being a legitimate music manager when he finds an...

Comic Con 2015: Rock the Kasbah panel with Bill Murray

Exclusive: Oscar "Best Picture" Retrospective - 1989

In this new series we take a look at the Oscar nominations of years past, examining the flicks that were nominated, as well as the pic we feel got snubbed among all the other candidates. Love 'em or hate 'em, the Oscars usually highlight the best films from each year (although there are plenty that get overlooked) and it's always fun to look back and see what was popular for...

Bill Murray is at his finest in the first trailer for Rock the Kasbah

Not that I don't love Bill Murray 's bit parts in, say, Wes Anderson films, but if you're like me and look forward to his leading-man roles, ROCK THE KASBAH looks like it's going to deliver some classic Murray. The story follows that of Richie Lanz (Murray), a rock manager who takes his last remaining client on a USO tour of Afghanistan. Through a serious of unfortunate events,...

Bill Murray Rocks the Kasbah in the first poster for the comedy drama

Pretty much every movie Bill Murray stars in is a must see for me. I mean, I am even willing to watch Cameron Crowe 's critically annihilated ALOHA simply because Murray puts in a supporting role. But, when it comes to lead performances, Murray always does something special. Last year, it was ST VINCENT. This year, it could be ROCK THE KASBAH. Written by Murray's friend...

Al Pacino returns to form in the trailer for The Humbling

Barry Levinson ’s upcoming comedy THE HUMBLING has a new trailer to remind us all of just how great Al Pacino can be. The movie is based on the novel of the same name by author Philip Roth and follows Pacino as a retired stage actor in decline who strikes up an affair with a “flirtatious lesbian” played by Greta Gerwig . I wouldn’t normally take much stock...
