Bill Murray Stars in Playful, Slo-Mo, Mock Trailer (and More Culture from Around the Web)

As Wes Anderson’s new film with Bill Murray hits theaters this weekend, a fun video starring the actor has surfaced on the web. Here’s the quick backstory. Last year, a crew working on a commercial shoot with Bill Murray got something better than an autograph. They got to appear in a slow-motion scene with him, all set to music by The Kinks. The Wes Anderson-style shoot was then turned into a short “trailer” for a faux film, Les cinéastes, and it’s now online for your enjoyment. via @protoncharging
