The first reveal of the upcoming Netflix Christmas miniseries, 'A Very Murray Christmas', has been released to get you in the festive mood... in May.
Christmas has come early. Well, Christmas advertising has come early. Netflix has announced their upcoming mini-series 'A Very Murray Christmas', set to appear in December. The show will star Bill Murray - as the name suggests - and will serve as a homage to variety shows.

Annie Parker is a fun-loving young woman struggling with the difficulties of motherhood, a husband who's slowly losing interest and, more importantly, breast cancer. She is unsurprised that she has become afflicted with the disease following her mother and older sister's suffering, but she suddenly finds herself overcome with the determination to find out why. Meanwhile, a young research geneticist named Mary-Claire King is looking into a breakthrough theory that suggests that some women are genetically pre-disposed to have breast cancer due to a particular gene. Unfortunately for her, there are few scientists who believe her theory. In order to prove her theory, she must conduct a research project looking into cancer sufferers' and their relatives' medical history - and that's where Annie Parker is eager to help.

This is the kind of British rom-com that sneaks up on you when you least expect it and leaves you with a huge smile on your face at the end. It's not particularly clever or sharp, but it's packed with terrific moments that grow on us. And the characters are particularly engaging, making far more of the film than its one-joke gimmick: fat man dances salsa.
Nick Frost plays Bruce, a chubby office worker who was a salsa champion as a child but turned his back on dance after some nasty bullying. Now he learns that his sexy new American boss Julia (Jones) is studying salsa herself, and her flirty manner suggests she might be interested, against the odds. Especially since swaggering office rival Drew (O'Dowd) is after her. So with the encouragement of his sister Sam (Colman), Bruce looks up his old mentor (McShane) and gets to work. His fellow lonely-hearts pals (Kinnear and Plester) think he's nuts, but encourage him. And he finds an unlikely ally in over-eager fellow dance student Bejan (Novak).
Both predictable and rather implausible, the plot certainly isn't what holds our attention here. It's the colourful people on-screen, each played to perfection by a gifted cast. Frost holds the film together with a lively performance that's surprisingly never played as a comedy of embarrassment (he can actually dance). Jones is clearly having a ball, even if generating any real chemistry with Frost eludes her, while Colman lights up the screen in a small role. And the shameless scene-stealers are O'Dowd, as a sleazy low-life straight from The Office, and especially Novak in one of those side-roles that becomes a comedy icon. We want to see a spin-off about him.
Continue reading: Cuban Fury Review
Bruce Garrett is a self-doubting, overweight office worker who has very little luck with women - as his co-worker never fails to remind him. When his new boss shows up and he finds that she is a beautiful woman named Julia, he desperately wants to impress her but can't see himself having any assets that she could want in a man - that is until he sees her displaying her moves at a salsa dancing event. It sparks an old passion within Bruce, who used to be a budding dancer aiming for the UK Junior Salsa Championships when he was 13-years-old before some severe bullying ruined his performance confidence forever. He decides to take up the sport again by attending salsa dancing lessons ahead of an upcoming show, however his co-worker also has his heart set on Julia and his moves could seriously threaten Bruce's wooing plans.
This charming British comedy is about love, passion and following your dreams and has been produced by the producers of Hot Fuzz' and 'Shaun Of The Dead'. 'Cuban Fury' has been directed by James Griffiths ('Free Agents', 'Episodes') and written by Jon Brown ('Mongrels', 'After You've Gone'), and is set for release this Valentine's Day, February 14th 2014.
Bruce Garrett may not have much going for him being overweight, low in confidence and only attractive to the right sort of girl, but there was a time when he had passion and drive - as a 13-year-old dancer with dreams of winning the UK Junior Salsa Championships. However, that all changed after suffering at the hands of bullies who ground him so far down that he abandoned his performing future. Things take a desperate turn when his beautiful new boss Julia catches his eye and it so happens that she has a passion for salsa dancing too; seizing what could possibly be his only chance at true love, he brushes off his dancing shoes and sets out to fulfil his dream once again and win her heart.
'Cuban Fury' is a heartwarming British comedy from the producers of 'Hot Fuzz' and 'Shaun Of The Dead'. Directed by James Griffiths ('Free Agents', 'Episodes') and written by Jon Brown ('Mongrels', 'After You've Gone'), it's the story of how love can ignite long-buried passions in an instant - no matter what is there to hold you back. Very appropriately, it is set to hit UK cinemas on Valentine's Day next year (February 14th 2014).
