First of all I saw Sofia Coppola was back as Writer/Director, then noticed Rashida Jones and then the one and only Bill Murray – what’s not to love already? Thankfully, dear reader, this trailer for On The Rocks does give all that hope a lot of justice and then some.
Seemingly opening with a closing scene of Lost in Translation – and Murray winding down his car window – things definitely take a different turn and angle but, dare I say it, this looks just as good and with a completely fresh narrative.
Also starring Marlon Wayans, who might be heading for a bit of resurgence with Respect coming up as well, On The Rocks sees young mother Laura (Jones) reconnecting with her larger-than-life playboy father Felix (Murray) on an adventure and love letter to New York.
After watching this teaser, I’m already on board for this A24 and Apple TV+ venture, in fact… I can’t wait!
