After filmmakers Peter & Bobby Farrelly delivered the hit comedy Dumb & Dumber, they followed it up with Kingpin, one of the best bowling comedies ever made. Sure, maybe that’s becauue Kingpin is one of the few movies that’s actually about bowling (sorry, The Big Lebowski), but it still stands strong as a solid underdog sports movie starring Woody Harrelson, Randy Quaid, and Bill Murray, each giving top notch comedic performances.
Now, 25 years later, Peter & Bobby Farrelly are said to somehow be working on a Kingpin sequel. Read More »
Happy Ghostbusters Day, everyone! I sure hope you remembered to tell all the ghosts in your life you love them. While Ghostbusters Day isn’t a new thing – it was actually launched back in 2016 – this year’s ghost-centric event is extra special because there’s a new Ghostbusters movie on the way. That would be Ghostbusters: Afterlife, a legacy sequel directed by Jason Reitman, son of original Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman. And while Afterlife will primarily focus on new characters, the original surviving Ghostbusters team members are all going to make an appearance, too.
That includes Bill Murray, who also appears in a Ghostbusters Day video with Ivan Reitman, and asks: what the hell is Ghostbusters Day?

A few weeks ago, Ghostbusters: Afterlife was forced to reveal one of its secrets because of some impending merchandise being released by Hasbro. A clip from the movie showed Paul Rudd‘s character encountering some maniacal and mischievous mini-Stay Puft marshmallow men inside a Walmart after picking up a pint of Baskin-Robbins ice cream (how about that product placement, folks?). Now we get to see what one of the original Ghostbusters thinks of the scene with Bill Murray himself watching and reacting to the scene for the first time. Read More »
Audiences were originally supposed to see Ghostbusters: Afterlife in theaters last summer, but the coronavirus pandemic had different plans. The film is now finally slated for release this fall, and in a new interview, cast member (and original Ghostbusters star) Bill Murray had some nice things to say about the upcoming sequel. Namely, that it “really brings [the franchise] back to life,” and that it “has the feel of the first one” – two sentiments fans of the original movie will likely be very glad to hear. Read More »
In what sounds like a Hollywood Mad Libs production, Apple Studios is financing a new comedy for director Peter Farrelly called The Greatest Beer Run Ever, and it will star Zac Efron, Russell Crowe, and maybe even Bill Murray. Read More »
Okay campers, rise and shine! And don’t forget your booties ’cause it’s cold out there. Well, at least it’s starting to get cold out there as we head into the holiday season, and if you’ve got someone in your family whose a big Groundhog Day fan, then Funko POP has a couple new items that you might want to pick up.
An official Groundhog Day Funko POP is being released just in time for the annual holiday that is celebrated in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. Not only does it feature Bill Murray as weatherman Phil Connors, but it also comes with a little Punxsutawney Phil to go along with it. But that’s not all, because there’s also a Groundhog Day board game that Funko is releasing too, and there’s a special bonus that Funko POP collectors will definitely want to get their hands on.

Bill Murray has become a kind of celebrity urban legend. He’s been known to crash weddings, join strangers’ karaoke sessions, or spontaneously begin bartending — building up a reputation as a sort of impish fairy man who will suddenly appear to give life-changing advice before flitting off to inject a little magic into the life of the next lost soul. It’s one of those fun Hollywood myths that might ring a little true, and it’s a persona that director Sofia Coppola taps into in her reunion with her Lost in Translation star with On the Rocks, a frothy father-daughter caper in which Murray plays an only slightly exaggerated version of himself.

It’s been 17 years since Bill Murray whispered in Scarlett Johansson’s ear, but the power of a Sofia Coppola-Bill Murray collaboration has not diminished.

And with A24 backing the film and Rashida Jones and Marlon Wayans making up the supporting cast, it looks like it could be smooth sailing for On the Rocks, which premieres this fall.
Apple TV+ has released the first official On the Rocks trailer, which you can watch below.

The reopening of movie theaters next month is still somewhat of an uncertainty, especially with Christopher Nolan’s Tenet recently being pushed back another two weeks and Disney considering yet another delay for their live-action adaptation of Mulan. But that’s not stopping Sony Pictures from bringing Ghostbusters back to the big screen in July, not only for theaters open in areas that have mostly overcome the spread of COVID-19, but for the safer, thriving drive-ins around the United States.
