I’m always up for a Sophia Coppola movie and yesterday brought the first trailer for her new dramedy “On the Rocks”. Like all of her previous works Coppola both writes and directs what is the first film in distributor A24’s multi-year partnership with Apple. It has yet been announced if “On the Rocks” will premiere on Apple’s new streaming platform.
The film stars Rashida Jones as a woman in her late thirties who begins to suspect her husband (Marlon Wayans) is having an affair. She turns to her playboy father played by Bill Murray for wisdom and advice. The two end up as daddy/daughter detectives, tracking her husband across the Big Apple and learning about their relationship in the process.
“On the Rocks” opens this October in theaters and (maybe) in AppleTV+. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.￼
I saw the trailer yesterday though I wasn’t really feeling anything mainly because I was just tired. Now seeing it again, this looks like it’s a different film of sorts from Sofia yet it does have a lot of the visual traits that she’s known for. I’m eager to see what she does as she is my all-time favorite filmmaker.
All-time favorite? That’s really cool. I didn’t realize that. Nice choice!
Well, I have yet to be let down by what she’s done as I still she’s made the BEST FILM EVER MADE!!! Lost in Translation.
Not my usual kind of thing, however I have Apple now ( had to see Greyhound!) and the picture and sound quality is way above and beyond, so will have a bash at this.
There ya go! 👍🏼
I love Bill Murray. Some of the dialogue in the clip sounds exhaustingly clever, which a a turnoff for me. Will probably check it out.
I’m really anxious to see this one Bill Murray (when he’s in his groove) is so much fun to watch.
100% up for this! This is bringing on major nostalgia for Lost in Translation.
It really does put off those vibes, right? If she can tap into some of that magic…
