Watch Phoenix, Michael Cera + More in the Teaser for Bill Murray’s ‘A Very Murray Christmas’
Bill Murray and Sofia Coppola previously worked together on 2003's tender, Oscar-winning Lost in Translation. Soon, they will team up once again on a decidedly goofier venture.
Coppola directs A Very Murray Christmas, a Christmas special starring Murray that’s set to air on Netflix this holiday season. The plot revolves around a fairly traditional variety show/holiday special trope, including an ensemble cast packed with celebrity appearances.
Murray will be joined by Phoenix (frontman Thomas Mars is Coppola’s husband), actor and Coconut Records man Jason Schwartzman (who is Coppola’s cousin) and actor Michael Cera (who dropped his debut album, True That, last year). The cast also includes Miley Cyrus, Chris Rock, George Clooney, Amy Poehler and more.
Netflix describes A Very Murray Christmas as a “musically-driven holiday special,” and in the trailer, you’ll hear Murray and Cyrus performing a duet of “Let It Snow.” Check it out at the top of the page and read Netflix's entire synopsis below:
This winter, Bill Murray brings an extra-special dose of holiday cheer to Netflix with the premiere of an all-star musically-driven holiday special, 'A Very Murray Christmas.' Set inside New York City’s iconic Carlyle hotel, 'A Very Murray Christmas' opens with Murray preparing to host a live, international holiday broadcast. After a blizzard shuts down the production, he makes the best of the situation by singing and celebrating with friends, hotel employees and anyone else who drops by.
