You Can Finally Watch Bill Murray's Strangest Performance In 'Nothing Lasts Forever'

Not as strange as his public persona though. For thirty years, there have been whispers about Nothing Lasts Forever, the long lost 1980's comedy starring Dan Aykroyd and Bill Murray that has sat in a vault. Up until now. Directed by SNL's short film director Tom Schiller, the movie features Gremlins star Zach Galligan as a young man struggling to survive in a totalitarian retro/future New York City. MGM originally shelved the film after a test audience response of "Whaddafuh?" But that's the charm of this unique film that has amassed a cult following and has to be seen to be believed. You can watch it now on YouTube. But I wouldn't wait too long because nothing lasts forever. Especially YouTube uploads that breach copyright claims.

See 'Moonrise Kingdom' Through The Rummed-Up Eyes Of Bill Murray

We learn so much. Bill Murray made good use of his downtime on the set of Moonrise Kingdom by agreeing to give the viewer a personal tour of the film as only Bill Murray can. Possibly with the assistance of Sailor Jerry Spice Rum. Here are a few of the things we learn from the video. Bill Murray plays a man in the film. Wes Anderson wears short pants. Tilda Swinton can do whatever she wants. Bill Murray doesn't watch films that he's not in. Edward Norton gets a lot of psycho work. People in short pants get mugged more often than average-panted people. You can make your own pants at home using loud materials. I hope this is a short pilot pitch for a series called Bill Murray on Film. Get after it, IFC.


Bill Murray, Zooey Deschanel, And Bruce Willis Get Together To 'Rock The Kasbah'

Whatever the hell that means. It's hard to tell what kind of film Rock the Kasbah is going to be from its trailer. But that probably won't stop you from seeing the likes of Bill Murray sing Deep Purple to a group of Afghan residents. Wouldn't you agree? The premise of the film revolves around a manager (Murray) taking his singer (Deschanel) to do a USO show in Afghanistan, when she leaves him without a wallet or passport. He wanders around Afghanistan, as US music managers so often due, until he finds a girl that needs to get to Kabul to sing. It's wacky, it's probably heartfelt, and it even has Danny McBride.


At Long Last, 'Ghostbusters' Is Used To Teach Us Economic Principals

I ain't afraid of no manufactured demand creating an inflationary bubble! EconPop, which sound like EgonPop, but is jut a coincidence, has taken to using pop films and shows to teach the world elements of economics. I guess, on the scope of things to use to teach us economics, those would be the most tolerable, but...still. Here they are using Ghostbusters, and the pesky governmental regulatory agencies to discuss how they just screw everything up, eventually leading to a giant anthropomorphic marshmallow (the weakening dollar) screwing everything up for everyone. It's actually pretty funny, so take a look, but try not to learn anything.


Watch Bill Murray Squawk It Up As Carl Spackler

Bill Murray is at it again! There's a 99% chance that you have never seen the CNBC program "The Squawk Box." So I thought it would be useful to let you know that American Hero Bill Murray recently appeared on the program to promote-- well, he was on there. It pains me to say this, but his appearance doesn't rank up there with his best work. He doesn't even go into his famous Caddyshack character until about 7 minutes in. Still, it might be worth watching for Bill Murray and Carl Spackler completists. (via MovieLine)


This 'Dumb And Dumber To' Clip Features A Bill Murray Cameo In Full Meth-Making Gear

Enjoy some Cajun-style meth. Dumb and Dumber To hit theaters late last night, and enjoys its widespread release today. We thought you should know of one fun cameo in the film that would likely go by unnoticed. And if you think this is a spoiler, I have some choice words for you. This is not a spoiler. This doesn't affect the plot, and no one was going to recognize Bill Murray's voice through a muffled plastic suit. That is all. Beyond that, Murray is just one of many, many people making cameos in the film. While we don't have an exhaustive list, we do know that Jennifer Lawrence's name has been thrown around a lot. But her name is always thrown around. She's Jennifer Lawrence. Take a look and enjoy a cat's butt for a second.


Bill Murray Knocked Out A 45-Minute Karaoke Set, And We've Got The Video

It's about Bill Murray, so it's automatically newsworthy. Bill Murray, remembering that he's Bill Murray, and hasn't done anything awesome in a couple days, got up at his Caddyshack restaurant and belted out songs for about 45 minutes, including the Animals "House of the Rising Sun." That sounds like a lot of fun and something I would like to see, even if it meant having to go to a place called the Caddyshack Restaurant. Fortunately, TMZ's reach knows no bounds, so they got some crappy video, which works out better for everyone.


Enough Killer Children To Swear You Off Of Parenthood Forever

Cold blooded murder has never been so adorable. To coincide with the release of Joe Wright's little-blonde-girl-assassin movie Hanna (in theaters now), Vulture put together a montage of disturbing child murderers! It's actually kind of hypnotic to watch, strangely enough. You'd think it'd make ovaries shrivel up and sperm start swimming the other way, but I don't know, it's kind of making me want to raise a little rugrat of my own. A little ball of joy to coddle and teach to ride a bike, and how to hold an icepick. It's all in the angle, you see. You raise that thing high enough above your head, and you've got a deadl weapon! Any lower and you're just going to maim. This heartwarming montage contains clips from Children Of The Corn all the way to Orphan. And if you're going to complain that Orphan isn't a good example, you're even more of a nerd than me, AND you just helped spoil the ending of a terrible movie. (Vulture)


'Birdman' Featurette Reveals How They Captured The Entire Film In One Long Take

The entire film was wrapped by lunch. Birdman (Or The Unexpected Virtue Of Ignorance) is a hot topic of conversation these days due in some part to the film's presentation as one long, ninety-minute continuous shot. The material is, of course, too ambitious to film in one shot so a certain amount of movie magic was involved to create the effect. To walk us through the process, Variety caught up with the film's colorist, Steve. He's apparently not very familiar with Zach Galifianakis.
