First Trailer For ‘St. Vincent’ – Starring Bill Murray, Melissa McCarthy, Naomi Watts, Chris O’Dowd…
From The Weinstein Company comes this first trailer for writer/director Theodore Melfi’s much buzzed about ‘St. Vincent.’ Bill Murray, Melissa McCarthy, Naomi Watts, Chris O’Dowd, Kimberly Quinn and Scott Adsit star in the comedic drama, which is about a young boy (Jaeden Lieberher) who finds an unlikely friend and mentor in Murray’s character, St. Vincent de Van Nuys, a misanthropic, bawdy, hedonistic, war veteran who lives next door. An October 24th release date has been penciled in for the film.
Maggie (McCarthy), a single mother, moves into a new home in Brooklyn with her 12-year old son, Oliver (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. An odd friendship soon blossoms between the improbable pair. Together with a pregnant stripper named Daka (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. Vincent helps Oliver grow to become a man, while Oliver begins to see in Vincent something that no one else is able to: a misunderstood man with a good heart.
