In a new teaser for the Bill Murray-led St. Vincent, the comedian mumbles his way through Bob Dylan's 1975 song "Shelter from the Storm," and the result is a heart-felt performance.
Murray, who plays war veteran Vincent in the movie, which opens Oct. 24, shuffles outside to what seems to be his favorite spot to just take the world in while listening to Dylan croon on a portable cassette player. It does not take long for the actor to join Dylan as he fumbles with his cigarettes and attempts to water a plant for too long.
The teaser is a perfect taste of the movie, billed as a comedy-drama because it is a hilariously intimate moment that shows off Vincent's quieter side. Check out the trailer after the teaser scene to see more of Murray's character, described as "interesting in a grouchy sort of way."
The movie follows Vincent as he learns to adapt to his new neighbors Maggie (Melissa McCarthy) and young Oliver (Jaeden Lieberher). Oliver ends up befriending Vincent, and the unlikely friendship ends up benefiting the two. Naomi Watts, Chris O'Dowd and Terrence Howard also appear in the film.
"As an Archie Bunker gone completely to seed, Murray puts on quite a show, while debuting writer-director Theodore Melfi has surrounded the star with a solid supporting cast and clearly shows that he knows how to manipulate an audience by putting a Charles Bukowski character into a fairy tale, which might well prove to be a winning commercial combination for The Weinstein Company this autumn," The Hollywood Reporter wrote about the film.
