Bill Murray has hit bottom in the first trailer for St. Vincent. A hedonistic war vet, Murray’s Vincent is a cranky drunk who cavorts around with strippers and gets enraged at the slightest things.

But Oliver (newcomer Jaeden Lieberher), the young boy who’s just moved in next door with his newly divorced mom (Melissa McCarthy), hardly notices all the vices and edges and starts to take to Vincent, and his mom agrees to let him look after Oliver for $11/hour. Predictably, Vincent’s idea of babysitting is unconventional at best.

Take a look after the jump. READ FULL STORY
