It’d been a while since we’ve seen a good Rock movie but I think we might see an end to that run with Rock the Kasbah. The new film stars Bill Murray as the washed-up tour manager Richie Lanz who drags his last client (played by Zooey Deschanel) to Afghanistan for a USO tour, during which she steals all his stuff and leaves him stranded in the Middle Eastern country. Lanz by pure chance discovers a singer out there (Leem Lubany) and manages her as she competes in Afghan Star.
The shining moment of this trailer is seeing Murray sing “Smoke On The Water.”
Rock the Kasbah, also featuring actors Bruce Willis, Kate Hudson, and Danny McBride, hits theaters October 23rd.
