Comic-Con 2015: Open Road
The Open Road panel was really just the panel for Rock the Kasbah, a new comedy coming this Fall. More than that, though, it was the Bill Murray show. After a standard theatrical trailer for the Barry Levinson film, which stars Murray as well as Zooey Deschanel, Bruce Willis, Kate Hudson, Danny McBride and Scott Caan, the focus was pretty much solely on the man himself, making his first Comic-Con appearance. He told stories, some of them hilarious and some of them moving, some of them about making the movie and some of them not. We learned that he has a standing gig “cheering up” Van Morrison, that Deschanel is a master of karaoke and that Willis was an NBC page. I can’t say it made me more stoked to check out Rock the Kasbah but it was a great start to the convention.
