There’s one reason and one reason only why we’re getting a Ghostbusters remake in 2016 instead of an actual Ghostbusters 3 five years ago. That reason is named Bill Murray and he’s been the not-so-secret sequel roadblock for as long as we can remember. But then he accepted a small role in the new reboot, because he’s Bill Murray and Bill Murray does whatever he wants. Sometimes that means randomly showing up at your birthday party. Sometimes that means popping up in a film franchise that he seemingly had zero desire to revisit. Now, Murray explains his reasons for joining a new Ghostbusters movie he was so vocally against.

For years Bill Murray was the one holdout against Ghostbusters 3, and without his participation and approval, making a new Ghostbusters sequel was never going to happen. We’ve wondered if the legendary (and legendarily picky) actor would make an appearance in Paul Feig’s new Ghostbusters after all that commotion, and now it seems he just might.

If you’ve gotta go to Afghanistan, traveling with Bill Murray doesn’t seem like a bad way to go…maybe. The first trailer for Rock the Kasbah is here, in which Murray plays an aging rock manager taking his last remaining client (Zooey Deschanel) on a USO tour of Afghanistan. Naturally, things go awry and wacky shenanigans occur and Bill Murray sings “Smoke on the Water,” further cementing his status as a dad icon.

‘Aloha’ Trailer: Say Hello to Cameron Crowe’s New Film

EDIT

When we compiled our most anticipated movies of 2015 here at ScreenCrush, I fought hard to include Cameron Crowe’s new movie ‘Aloha.’ True, ‘Elizabethtown’ was sort of a disaster (about a disaster, so it was thematically appropriate, if hugely disappointing), and ‘We Bought a Zoo’ wasn’t a whole lot better, but after ‘Jerry Maguire’ and ‘Almost Famous,’ I just refuse to give up hope that this guy will find his way back to that genius he’s shown repeatedly throughout his career.
