Amy Poehler, George Clooney Jingle It Up in Very Murray Christmas Trailer

On the first day of Christmas, Sofia Coppola gave to me: the first glimpse of a tongue-in-cheek Netflix holiday special starring Bill Murray.

The streaming video service has released a new trailer for A Very Murray Christmas, the Coppola-directed, star-filled seasonal special with Bill Murray at its center.

Written by Murray, Coppola and Mitch Glazer, the project is described as “an homage to the classic variety show,” with Murray (as himself) fretting that no one will show up for his TV show due to a terrible snow storm in New York City.

The cast includes Amy Poehler, Miley Cyrus, Chris Rock, Jason Schwartzman, Michael Cera, Paul Shaffer, Maya Rudolph, Rashida Jones and the band Phoenix (fronted by Coppola’s husband Thomas Mars).

A Very Murray Christmas will be available on Dec. 4.

Press PLAY on the video above to get the holiday season started.

    Happy to see Julie White’s got a big part in it — she’s all kinds of awesome.

    oh my god yes. This and Gilmore Girls is making Netflix so worth it!

  3. DIED at the Monuments Men line. Great stuff. But Miley Cyrus should NEVER get higher billing than Amy Poehler.
