The Man and the Music with Murray #Rocktober

Happy 1st of October!

This is one of my most favorite times of year. It really is, I love the Fall and I love Halloween. Two of my kids were born in October (making May my other favorite time of year for my Finn) and of course my brother’s birthday is also in October. It’s a good month!

billmurrayAdding to the fun this October is the start of ROCK THE KASBAH’s #ROCKTOBER by getting to know legendary rock manager Richie Lanz (Bill Murray) in this brand new behind-the-scenes look – “The Man and the Music.” Hear what some of your favorite rock musicians had to say about Richie, his legacy, and his famous antics throughout the years.

SYNOPSIS 

A has-been rock manager from Van Nuys, California stumbles upon a once-in-a-lifetime voice in a remote Afghan cave in Rock the Kasbah, a dramatic comedy inspired by stranger-than-fiction, real-life events and directed by Oscar winner Barry Levinson. Richie Lanz (Bill Murray), dumped and stranded in war-torn Kabul by his last remaining client (Zooey Deschanel), discovers Salima Khan (Leem Lubany), a Pashtun teenager with a beautiful voice and the courageous dream of becoming the first woman to compete on national television in Afghanistan’s  version of “American Idol.”  Richie partners with a savvy hooker (Kate Hudson), a pair of hard-partying war profiteers (Danny McBride and Scott Caan) and a hair-trigger mercenary (Bruce Willis) and, braving dangerous cultural prejudices, manages his new protégée into becoming the “Afghan Star.”

Moonrise Kingdom not your average blue lagoon

On behalf of Focus Features, we’re excited to announce AOL Moviefone has just launched the first of four exclusive behind-the-scenes featurettes premiering throughout the web this week from MOONRISE KINGDOM!

Make sure to swing by AOL Moviefone today and all of our partners throughout the week for exclusive behind-the-scenes looks featuring Bruce Willis, Wes Anderson, Edward Norton & Bill Murray.

Set on an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, MOONRISE KINGDOM tells the story of two twelve-year-olds who fall in love, make a secret pact, and run away together into the wilderness. As various authorities try to hunt them down, a violent storm is brewing off-shore — and the peaceful island community is turned upside down in more ways than anyone can handle. Bruce Willis plays the local sheriff. Edward Norton is a Khaki Scout troop leader. Bill Murray and Frances McDormand portray the young girl’s parents. The cast also includes Tilda Swinton (she happens to terrify me), Jason Schwartzman, and Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward as the boy and girl.
