Bill Murray and Zooey Deschanel go on a crazy rock tour in Rock the Kasbah trailer

11 June 2015 1:32 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Go on the craziest rock tour of all time in the new trailer for the Bill Murray and Zooey Deschanel-starring comedy Rock the Kasbah.

The latest comedy from director Barry Levinson casts Murray as a strung-out rock manager who is abandoned by his act on a Uso tour of Afghanistan.

Left stranded with no money in Kabul, Richie (Murray) tries to strike it rich once again by managing a promising young singer on Afghanistan's equivalent of American Idol.

Levinson continues his long tradition of hiring all-star ensemble casts by featuring Bruce Willis, Scott Caan, Taylor Kinney and Kate Hudson in Rock the Kasbah.

The screenplay was penned by Mitch Glazer, best known for producing Murray's indie hit Lost in Translation and writing Magic City.

Rock the Kasbah is released on October 23 in the Us. »

The 9 Most Fawning Lines in Vanity Fair’s Profile of True Detective’s Nic Pizzolatto

11 June 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In Rich Cohen's (note the initials) fawning Vanity Fair profile of Nic Pizzolatto, he asks whether the "uncompromising auteur" can "do it all again?" The answer for Cohen is self-evident: Yes, yes, a thousand times yes! Pizzolatto is totally the guy in your Mfa program, only now he's made it. Cohen first met Pizzolatto at DePauw University, where they talked about God (what else?), and then in the writer's room of Magic City, where he was "clearly on the rise." Cohen calls himself a supplicant and compares Pizzolatto to everyone from a John Steinbeck character to Orson Welles. Get a room, guys.1. “He was a young professor at work on his first novel, seemingly just another member of the academic multitude, but there was something different about him, something edgy and strange you noticed right away. He registered as bigger than his moderate size, powerful, with a wicked grin. »

Rock The Kasbah Trailer: Bill Murray Wanders through Afghanistan

11 June 2015 10:14 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Open Road Films has released the first trailer for director Barry Levinson’s (Wag the Dog) upcoming comedy Rock the Kasbah. Written by Mitch Glazer (Magic City), the film stars Bill Murray as a rock manager who, after being jilted by his last remaining client while on a Uso tour in Afghanistan, befriends a band of misfits and stumbles upon a young woman with an extraordinary voice. Watching this trailer, I’m still not sure what kind of movie this is. At some points, it feels like the trailer is trying to cover up a weird film by making it look like a fish-out-of-water comedy. And at other points, it looks like it’s genuinely in that genre. I’m hoping it’s the former, because if it’s at least a weird movie, that might make it interesting. It could even be a misunderstood gem like Ishtar (although I »

Watch: Opportunity Rocks In The First Trailer For 'Rock The Kasbah' Starring Bill Murray

11 June 2015 10:09 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Loyalty’s gotta count for something. Mitch Glazer is a veteran screenwriter (“Scrooged”), producer, the creator/showrunner of Starz’s “Magic City” and a longtime friend of Bill Murray. While he’s worked in Hollywood for some thirty years, it wasn’t until 2010 and “Passion Play” with Mickey Rourke, Megan Fox and Murray that Glazer directed a film. Premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival that year, “Passion Plays” was universally regarded as a disaster. Read More: Review: 'Passion Play' Is An Excruciating, Unbearable Disaster  But try try again, right? Glazer’s back at it and his buddy Murray is in tow, this time as the lead. But there’s another director at the helm for the film: Barry Levinson. This dramedy is a rock and roll narrative set in the Middle East, focusing on a man who’s seen better days. Here’s the official synopsis: “Rock The Kasbah »

2015 The Summer of the Most Famous Dead Guy on TV | Geek Girl Navigating the World

28 February 2015 7:15 AM, PST | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

You wouldn’t think a show like “Supernatural” would have anything in common with “Grey’s Anatomy” or “Weeds”. After all, they’re wildly different genres on different networks. Each of these shows did do one thing the same. Every single one of them killed a character played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

He’s the dad they love to kill, or, at least that’s what happened to both John Winchester and Judah Botwin. Even as a single guy with a thing for Scrabble, he didn’t fare so well, just ask Denny Duquette. Oh, wait. You can’t. They killed him, too. He became, for all intents and purposes, the best and most memorable Red Shirt on TV.

Foolishly, I thought maybe movies would make a difference. “Watchmen” and “Jonah Hex” both proved me wrong. He did stay alive through “Peace, Love, and Misunderstanding”, “Taking Woodstock,” “The Losers,” “P.S. I Love You »

First Trailer for The Expanse Previews the “Darkness” of Syfy’s New Series

16 January 2015 11:03 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

After good but slightly formulaic procedurals became Syfy’s norm over the past couple of years, the network is doing its best to make a push back into serialized, science fiction storytelling with shows more similar in scope to the network’s most beloved (and critically acclaimed) series of all-time, Battlestar Galactica. One of the most highly anticipated of these new series is The Expanse, which does not yet have an official premiere date but is slated to hit Syfy this year, and the network has just released first trailer for the show. Set 200 years in the future, after mankind has colonized the solar system, the 10-episode thriller follows a hardened detective (Thomas Jane, Hung) and a rogue ship’s captain (Steven Strait, Magic City) as their investigation into a missing young woman evolves into a race across the solar system to expose the greatest conspiracy in human history.
