Women's Pictures - Sofia Coppola's Somewhere

8 hours ago | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Anne Marie's Sofia Coppola chapter of 'Women's Pictures' has reached its finale. Next month: Agnes Varda!

Sofia Coppola month has been enlightening. I don't know that we've tackled a director as polarizing as Ms. Coppola on Women's Pictures to date, and I've enjoyed reading the varied reactions readers have had to her films. For that reason, and because of the more prominent autobiographical inspirations, the final movie of Sofia Coppola month is Somewhere, the often-overlooked 2010 dramedy.

Somewhere distills the themes Coppola has employed throughout her career, putting them in service of a story that rings clearly from the writer/director's personal experience. After all, before she was Sofia Coppola, Academy Award winning screenwriter and respected director, she was Sofia Coppola, daughter of famed auteur Francis Ford Coppola. She had a firsthand account of how major celebrity can free a person and also trap him, and those contradictions resonate through her entire ouvre. »

24 May 2015 9:44 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Netflix is backing A Very Murray Christmas. Check out the very short teaser below. Co-written by the actor alongside his Lost In Translation director Sofia Coppola and Scrooged scribe Mitch Glazer, with Coppola set to call the shots, the special will be an homage to variety shows, with Murray playing himself and worrying that none of his guests will show up due to a terrible snow storm in New York. “Christmas is really about Christmas songs so I thought I’d sort of do something like that,” Murray previously said of the project. “That was sort of Sofia’s idea.

Bill Murray, Sofia Coppola prepare us for the holidays with Netflix’s ‘A Very Murray Christmas’

23 May 2015 8:23 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Is this the Lost in Translation sequel we have desired? Probably not, but it will still be great.

Netflix released the first trailer for A Very Murray Christmas on Thursday, which reunites Bill Murray with his Translation director Sofia Coppola. The cast will be led by Murray playing a version of himself with guest stars, including: George Clooney, Paul Shaffer, Amy Poehler, Julie White, Dimitri Dimitrov, Michael Cera, Chris Rock, David Johansen, Maya Rudolph, Jason Schwartzman, Jenny Lewis, Phoenix, Frederic Moulin, Rashida Jones, Miley Cyrus and more.

The teaser doesn’t show much outside of Murray, with reindeer ears, looking out a window that is very reminiscent to many scenes in Lost in Translation, but regardless, I’m sure a lot of people will tune in to see something starring both Bill Murray and the array of guest stars that he and Coppola have amassed.

The special will be coming »

Watch Bill Murray Bring the Yuletide Cheer in the 'A Very Murray Christmas' Trailer

22 May 2015 6:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

We love to spend the holidays with Bill Murray. There's Ghostbusters II on New Year's Eve, Hyde Park on Hudson on President's Day, Groundhog Day on Groundhog Day and, of course, Scrooged at Christmas*. Now we're going to have more of the actor to watch on that last holiday, because he's starring in a special called A Very Murray Christmas, which will debut on Netflix this December. Fans of Scrooged should be happy with the program, as one of that movie's screenwriters, Mitch Glazer, is now co-writing this with Murray and Sofia Coppola, who is also directing the special.

Like stores playing Christmas music in October and people forming lines outside Best Buy the Monday before Black Friday, it's apparently never too early to start preparing for the holiday season. Well, Netflix has officially upped the ante this morning, debuting the first teaser for its upcoming holiday special "A Very Murray Christmas" starring, who else, Bill Murray. If you're like me you love Lost in Translation, and if that's the case you'll be delighted to know Netflix's upcoming special is written and directed by Sofia Coppola. The teaser features Murray wistfully staring out the window of a high-rise, wearing thick black suspenders and a pair of reindeer antlers. All that's missing is the Suntory whisky.

The Teaser For A Very Murray Christmas Will Remind You Why You Love Bill Murray

22 May 2015 8:30 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

When news broke that Sofia Coppola and Bill Murray were teaming up for a holiday special, we were hoping, by some miracle, that it would be done by Christmas 2014. As it turns out, A Very Murray Christmas will be debuting on Netflix in December of this year, and the first teaser is here. It features Murray looking melancholy with a pair of reindeer antlers on. Why so sad? He's playing himself on the special, and he's worried that no one will show up to his TV show due to a snowstorm. Judging by the list of stars who are appearing in the special (George Clooney, Paul Shaffer, Amy Poehler, Julie White, Dimitri Dimitrov, Michael Cera, Chris Rock, David Johansen, Maya Rudolph, Jason Schwartzman, Jenny Lewis, Phoenix, Frédéric Moulin, Rashida Jones, and Miley Cyrus), we're thinking he's going to be Ok.
