‘On The Rocks’ Trailer: Sofia Coppola Sends Bill Murray & Rashida Jones On A Wild New York Adventure

If I were launching a new streaming service and on the hunt for content, the first thing I’d do is talk to Sofia Coppola and beg her to make more movies with Bill Murray. That’s basically what Apple and A24 did as part of their new deal, making Coppola’s latest film On the Rocks their first huge announcement. A reunion between the filmmaker and her Lost in Translation star, the film returns her to a familiar motif; a relationship that grows stronger during a wild adventure in the big city.

On the Rocks pairs Murray with Rashida Jones as a larger-than-life playboy father and his daughter as they tail her soon-to-be husband around New York City. Like ‘Translation’, this looks to be both a stirring love letter to a big city and a look at how different generations have competing views on relationships.

Again, this feels very similar to Lost in Translation, maybe leaning a bit more on the comedic side, and I’m totally okay with that.

The cast also includes Marlon Wayans, Jessica Henwick, and Jenny Slate. Murray most recently worked with Coppola on the Netflix holiday special A Very Murray Christmas. Coppola’s 2013 film The Bling Ring was one of A24’s first big acquisitions.

On the Rocks hits theaters and Apple TV+ this October.
