Bill Murray walks in slow motion for fan video

It never hurts to ask. At least that’s what filmmaker David Walton must have thought when he opted to ask Bill Murray to appear in his fake movie trailer rather than requesting a simple autograph.

Murray’s one of the most elusive and eccentric characters in Hollywood, a mystery wrapped in an enigma wrapped in golf pants, and this kind of spontaneous decision making seems pretty in character for a guy who doesn’t have a manager and has been known to crash strangers' parties (Exhibit A) . And the results are as good as you’d hope: Murray walks down a hallway in a dramatic, slow-motion scene a la Wes Anderson, dubbed over with a Kinks song. It’s not clear when the trailer was filmed, but the clip was discovered via Reddit last week.

(Here's a direct link in case the embed doesn't work: http://vimeo.com/20089652 )

Though the trailer is fake — there’s unfortunately no forthcoming film called A Film about Walking in Slow Motion – it pays homage to Murray’s proclivity for Wes Anderson movies. Check out his latest one, “Moonrise Kingdom,” which is out in limited release.

Wut! That chunky guy doing the hair flip looked like it was slo-mo tho!
voyevoda 30th-May-2012 04:02 am (UTC)
I dunno, this site says he did it on set. :D

ETA: Oop, never mind. Read the comments and apparently they did it in post editing anyway.

My boyfriend and I met Bill Murray in Cuba. We were standing next to him on the hotel terrace and he looks at my boyfriend and says, "Hey, don't I know you?" My boyfriend told him he didn't think he did, but it was nice to meet him ... Then we later saw him swimming with a bunch of European children.

I know. We always say that when we discuss it. He was there with Benicio del Toro, James Cann, and Robert Duvall. We stayed in the same hotel. I did get a picture with Benicio del Toro and Robert Duvall (who was the nicest person I have ever met). The whole situation was really surreal, but made the trip that much more perfect.

he's one of the nicest guys in Hollywood. My little brother is interested in film and really loves him. He met him at a bagel shop last winter and said that Bill was the nicest, most sincere celeb he's ever met. He was so excited.

I will forever love him because of Groundhog Day. Many other movies too, but especially that one. One of my top ten comedies for sure.

yes you need new friends!

Groundhog day is amazing, I can never get sick of it, and i love Scrooged too, and quick change... and and and so many more haha.

My fave part in zombieland is his scene, its the icing on the cake.
alkalinecupcake 30th-May-2012 05:30 am (UTC)
well, to be fair, many of my friends are cool with bill murray, so i think to be specific, bill murray in wes anderson movies fans. not many. so people will definitely not get this clip.

Zombieland was amazing because of him (i think), it was getting a little dry-ish then BOOM, BILL MURRAY IN THE HOUSE Y'ALL.

So what is the latest on Ghostbusters III ? I thought it had the greenlight but now ??
grammaire 30th-May-2012 04:17 am (UTC)
I think Bill ended up turning it down.
karis_azura 30th-May-2012 04:42 am (UTC)
I'm sort of relieved...I'd heard Rick Moranis wasn't on board and it wouldn't be the same without him.
