You know there’s so much good stuff on Netflix that, frankly and sadly, I haven’t got enough free time to see everything I want but this one, definitely this one, I’ll be taking a moment to watch once it hits the streaming service later this year. Granted, we’ve got a while for A Very Murray Christmas because it’s not out until December, and we haven’t even hit summer 2015 yet!

What is all this rambling about, you ask? Well, back in October we reported that »

Netflix Plans A Very (Bill) Murray Christmas

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

As if Bill Murray wasn’t already a festive tradition for many of Team Empire thanks to Scrooged, he’s now ready to crash that Yuletide staple, the Christmas special. 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. And I started thinking about Christmas songs and I thought you can do some different things with it and sort »

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 »

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 video is just a small taste of something bigger, as "A Very Murray Christmas" is described as an homage to the classic variety show, with Murray playing himself, worried no one will show »

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.

Watch: First Teaser For Sofia Coppola's 'A Very Murray Christmas' With Bill Murray

22 May 2015 6:20 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Bill Murray has already starred in a modern Christmas staple with "Scrooged!" but it looks like the actor is ready to take a shot at making another holiday classic. For a while now, we've heard bits and pieces about a Christmas special he's been working on with director Sofia Coppola, and a very brief first taste has arrived. Netflix has dropped a promo for the appropriately titled "A Very Murray Christmas." George Clooney, Amy Poehler, Miley Cyrus and Maya Rudolph are also involved and the story will involve Murray playing himself and trying to avoid a Hollywood figure who wants to represent the actor who famously forgoes having a manager or agent. And somewhere in there will be rooms for Christmas carols to be sung by the actors (everyone is playing themselves) and probably more bits and pieces of holiday cheer. "A Very Murray Christmas" hits Netflix in December. Watch below. »
