St. Vincent — Trailer


added: Tue, Jul 1st '14

Who wouldn't want Bill Murray as their next-door-neighbor? Well, it seems Melissa McCarthy has found that scenario to be quite a hand full in the first trailer for writer-director Theodore Melfi's upcoming comedy "St. Vincent."

McCarthy plays the hard-working, newly-divorced mother of a latchkey kid (newcomer Jaeden Lieberher) who strikes up an unlikely friendship with Vincent (Murray), the eccentric grouch who lives next door. When McCarthy discovers her small boy has been exposed to Vincent's favorite pastimes (local bars, horse racing, strippers -- thanks in part to Vincent's "lady of the night" companion, played by a Russian-accented Naomi Watts), she has no other alternative but to accept her son's bizarre choice for a father figure.

Co-starring Chris O'Dowd as a Catholic priest/schoolteacher, "St. Vincent" opens this fall, October 24th.

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.
