Bill Murray is an American comedy icon. But Canada has beat the U.S. to the chase in giving the star of such beloved movies as Groundhog Day, Ghostbusters and Stripes his very own day of honor. Well played, Canada. Well played.
You never really know when or where Bill Murray might turn up. Unless it's a Wes Anderson movie, in which case, there's a pretty good chance. But The Jungle Book isn't a Wes Anderson movie, it's a Disney movie directed by Jon Favreau, and Bill Murray is voicing the role of Balou.
As you can see in this first promo, Vincent is a man with a bad attitude in the middle of a bad day, when he meets young Oliver (newcomer Jaeden Lieberher). But Oliver lowers the guards of this grump, and soon they form a deranged but oddly tender bond.
Harold Ramis' death has likely left many of us feeling a mixture of sadness and fond amusement as we grieve but also remember some of his best work in comedy. For those of us who grew up believing that regular scientists could achieve superhero status with the right equipment on their backs, Ramis' face may be best associated with his role as Egon Spengler
In the film, the trio star as Walter Garfield, Richard Campbell and Preston Savitz, respectively, three members of the seven-man outfit known as The Monuments Men.
At some point over the past few months, Shia LaBeoufís aggressively weird behavior got so consistently weird that it stopped surprising us. Whether threatening to retire from public life or releasing bizarre manifestos on willful plagiarism, his oddities somehow became par for the course. Eccentric, unexplainable shit became his M.O., which is why Iím now so shocked to report the following story thatís pretty much as conventional as it gets.
How Bill Murray Tried To Save Garfield And Terrorized A Sushi Chef In 16 Things Learned From His AMA
When celebrities want to promote something, they take to the internet. Check out the sixteen most amazing, gotta read things we learned about Bill Murray during his detailed question and answer session.
Minchin will write the music and lyrics of the Groundhog Day musical, while Danny Rubin, who co-wrote the movie with Harold Ramis, will pen the stage show's book. Attached to direct is Matthew Warchus, who helmed Matilda: The Musical.
Described as a supernatural action comedy written and directed by Tony Leondis (Igor), the movie centers on a pair of ghosts named Moss (Seth Rogen) and Watts (Melissa McCarthy) who work for a top secret government agency that works to protect human beings from evil ghosts and their attempts to haunt the living.
It turns out Bill Murray is even better than we have collectively imagined. The comedian who has forged his own path in film and in fun has a reputation for committing only to projects that interest him, and it appears his passion to see those films made right far exceeds his interest in money.
Can we all just take a second to appreciate how wonderful it is to never have to worry about seeing Bill Murray in a movie like Larger Than Life again? I guess itís technically possible but doubtful anytime soon. Since heís already worked with directors such as George Clooney and Wes Anderson this year, I guess thereís no harm in him throwing a Cameron Crowe movie on the pile.
Based on a script by Mitch Glazer, who previously worked with Murray on the absolutely awful film Passion Play, the new movie tells the story of a "burned-out music manager" who flies off to the Middle East when his last remaining client signs up for the USO tour. After a series of events, the protagonist finds himself alone, broke and stranded in Afghanistan without a passport...
John McNaughton has said that another Wild Things film is in the works, and that heís working on it with screenwriter Stephen Peters, who wrote the original film as well as Wild Things 2 and Wild Things: Diamonds in the Rough. But forget about everything youíve seen after the first one, because they want the new sequel to tell the story of the original movie's characters' children.
Were you expecting a three-part Bill Murray video essay when you woke up today? Probably not. But as it turns out, it's totally the perfect way to spend your afternoon, revisiting some of the highlights from nearly all of Murray's films, but not necessarily focusing on all the most famous stuff. There are instantly recognizable clips from Ghostbusters and Groundhog Day, of course, but not necessarily the most famous lines, plus scenes from movies like Tootsie and Little Shop of Horrors
Who could possibly picture Murray as a corrupt, thieving, lying gambler? McCarthy will play his new neighbor, a single mother whose multi-shift hospital schedule forces her hand in asking De Van Nuys to look after her good-hearted 12-year-old son. Though the elder gentleman subjects the boy to much of his bad behavior, only the positive aspects are filtered through. Itís hard to see where this project could go wrong, especially if Melfiís script is as affecting as its buzz has implied
