A first trailer has been released for Sofia Coppola’s new film On the Rocks, starring Bill Murray and Rashida Jones.
In the movie, Murray and Jones star as a father-daughter duo. Jones’s character Laura, a writer and mother, experiences doubts about her marriage.
Her father, a ”larger-than-life playboy” called Felix, convinces her that they need to investigate her husband by tailing him.

Sharing the full story, not just the headlines
“Can you just act a little less excited about this?” Jones’s Laura asks her father. “Because this is my life, and it might be falling apart.”
Felix, meanwhile, shares a couple of what he believes to be general truths about relationships. “A woman is at her most beautiful between the ages of 35 and 39,” and” “It’s nature – males are forced to fight, to dominate, and to impregnate all females,” he quips.
On the Rocks will be released in October on Apple TV+ and in theatres. It has been described as a “bittersweet comedy” by the streaming service.
It’s Coppola’s latest film since 2017’s The Beguiled.
