Bill Murray Befriends Melissa McCarthy's Son in 'St. Vincent' Trailer
"What kind of man takes a child to a bar and to the racetrack?" With the summer comedy Tammy hitting theaters this weekend, it's the perfect time to hype up the next film featuring Bridesmaids scene-stealer Melissa McCarthy. Thankfully, the first trailer for St. Vincent looks much better than the same old roles she has been taking since her breakthrough performance in 2011. It's helped by the fact that Bill Murray plays a disheveled, rough-around-the-edges neighbor who helps babysit her son (Jaeden Lieberher), not to mention the presence of Chris O'Dowd as a Catholic school teacher and priest, and Naomi Watts as a delightful Russian lady of the night. This looks really damn funny and undeniably charming. Watch below!
Here's the first trailer for Ted Melfi's St. Vincent, originally from Yahoo:
St. Vincent is written and directed by Ted Melfi, making his feature directorial and writing debut. Maggie (Melissa McCarthy) is a single mother who moves into a new home in Brooklyn with her 12-year old son, Oliver (Jaeden Lieberher). Forced to work long hours, she has no choice but to leave Oliver in the care of their new neighbor, Vincent (Murray), a retired curmudgeon with a penchant for alcohol and gambling. Together with a pregnant stripper named Daka (Naomi Watts), Vincent brings Oliver along on all the stops that make up his daily routine - the race track, a strip club, and the local dive bar, creating an unlikely friendship. Chris O'Dowd also stars in the film The Weinstein Company releases this fall October 24th.
