Bill Murray Wants to Wish You A Very Murray Christmas
Netflix has released a trailer for A Very Murray Christmas, its upcoming Christmas special starring Bill Murray set to debut in December.
The 24-second trailer, which is clearly a nod to his role in Lost in Translation, features a signature shrug from the actor while he dons a pair of headband antlers and gazes glumly out a Carlyle Hotel window at the New York City skyline -- all set to a score of jazz piano.
It's no coincidence that the trailer looks like the hit 2003 film. The special reunites the actor with Sofia Coppola, who last directed Murray in Lost in Translation, for which he earned the first Oscar nomination of his career.
A Very Murray Christmas pays tribute to the classic variety show and features Murray as the host, according to Netflix.
In the special, a snowstorm hits New York City and Murray worries that none of his guests will be able to make the trek, according to Netflix. But with a combination of divine luck and perseverance, he ends up partying the night away with A-list guests at The Carlyle Hotel.
The cast of partiers includes notable names such as George Clooney, Dimitri Dimitrov, Michael Cera, Chris Rock, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Miley Cyrus, Jason Schwartzman, Rashida Jones and more.
