Bill Murray threatens Mickey Rourke in the trailer for Passion Play

Not that anyone probably cares, but the newest trailer for PASSION PLAY is out via Vulture.

Well, I sort of care. The cast involved intrigues me (Bill Murray, Mickey Rourke, Rhys Ifans, and guilty pleasure Megan Fox), however, the reviews for it are brutal. Our critic, Chris Bumbray offered up one of the worst in my opinion, "'Passion Play' is a BAD movie. Astoundingly bad. Unfathomably bad. As bad as any film Uwe Boll's ever made, and then some." Ouch. Mitch Glazer (SCROOGED, THE RECRUIT) wrote the screenplay and directed on this project.

The film is doing a small limited release on May 6th, then 25 days later on May 31st arrive on DVD. I might see it if they put it on Netflix, but I can't see myself going out of my way to check it out. Witness the trailer for yourself below.


"Nate (Rourke), a small-time jazz musician, is clearly a hard-luck case. Caught trying to break into a car, he is taken off into the desert where his assailant puts a gun to his head. Game over? Not quite. Stumbling into a circus pitched amidst the vast expanses of the southwest desert, Nate finds himself drawn to the exotic beauty of Lily (Fox), the Bird Woman. Lily is cold and dismissive; socializing with customers is not her scene. But it dawns on her that this gentle giant may well be her way out of a life of eccentric exposition. Nate is protective and understanding, and to him her aquiline beauty is a magic part of her uniqueness. As their bond deepens, Nate finds that his dreams of bliss are about to be thwarted by Happy Shannon (Murray), a cucumber-cool businessman with deep pockets and an eye for the bizarre."

Extra Tidbit: Note: The trailer says "Academy Award Winner Mickey Rourke". Did I miss something? Did I blackout one Oscar year?
