A24 released an official trailer for On the Rocks last week. The film reunites writer-director Sofia Coppola and actor Bill Murray, who have not collaborated on a feature film since Lost in Translation back in 2003.
I have to be honest, Comedy Murray is who I’m most familiar with seeing (besides his roles in Wes Anderson) on screen, but I’m aware of his dramatic chops. On the Rocks looks like a pleasant blend of comedy and drama (hence the dramedy genre). Maybe the most surprising aspect of the trailer was that Rashida Jones looks great, and she’s doing most of the dramatic heavy lifting here. I’m only familiar with her from The Office which wasn’t necessarily high on cheating drama-drama (Jim and Pam’s flirtationship aside).
This trailer definitely sold me on this film, and I will be checking it out.
On the Rocks premieres this October on Apple TV+ and hits theaters at a yet-announced date.
What do you screenagers think? Interested in seeing this at all?
