The Bill Murray Movie You've Never Heard Of
In today's print edition of the LA Weekly, I wrote a story on Tom Schiller's Nothing Lasts Forever, an amazing, never-released and rarely screened 1984 sci-fi comedy starring Zach Galligan from Gremlins, and Bill Murray as the operator of an intergalactic bus line that transports elderly tourists to the moon. The film is screening tonight--and only tonight--at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood, and it's a must see.
Schiller got the gig to make Forever through his day job, making short films for Saturday Night Live--think of him as the godfather of Lonely Island. A program of his SNL shorts will screen tonight before the feature, including Don't Look Back in Anger, an eerie clip in which an old age-makeuped John Belushi roams the Not Ready For Primetime cemetery. That is embedded after the jump, along with the Nothing Lasts Forever trailer.
