Trippy Poster for Barry Levinson's 'Rock the Kasbah' with Bill Murray

Rock the Kasbah

Opportunity rocks where you least expect it. Open Road Films has debuted a trippy new poster for Rock the Kasbah, the latest film from Barry Levinson, starring Bill Murray as a "down-on-his-luck music manager" who discovers a talented singer in Afghanistan and takes her compete in the Afghani version of American Idol. The film has a big cast, including Zooey Deschanel, Kate Hudson, Danny McBride, but this poster is all about Murray who gets his smiling mug front and center. I'm not sure if all the wild colors are from the film, or just designed to make this eye-catching, but I'm curious to see some footage. View below.

Here's the first official poster for Barry Levinson's new film Rock the Kasbah, originally posted by

Rock the Kasbah

A down-on-his-luck music manager discovers a teenage girl with an extraordinary voice while on a music tour in Afghanistan and takes her to Kabul to compete on the popular television show, Afghan Star. Besides Bill Murray, the cast includes Zooey Deschanel Bruce Willis, Danny McBride and Scott Caan. Rock the Kasbah is directed by veteran filmmaker Barry Levinson (of The Humbling, The Bay, Man of the Year, Bandits, Sphere, Wag the Dog, Sleepers, Toys, Rain Man, Good Morning Vietnam), from a screenplay by Mitch Glazer (a "longtime friend" of Bill Murray). Open Road Films is planning to release Barry Levinson's Rock the Kasbah in select theaters starting on October 23rd later this year. Stay tuned for more updates.

I hope the movie is as good! I like this poster. Sure it's photoshop filtered to hell and back, but it works and still looks rad.

please dont let Zooey Deschanel be the Afghani singer that Bill Murray finds. Dont make the mistake that John Cusacks movie Lord of War made by casting a white girl (AKA Hilary Duff) in a middle-eastern role
