Wes Anderson films have a very definite tone and based on this trailer Moonrise Kingdom fits into his oeuvre. The last film that Anderson made was 2009’s Fantastic Mr. Fox an animated film that starred George Clooney as the titular character.
Moonrise Kingdom is set in the summer of 1965 on an island off the coast of New England. Two twelve-year-olds fall in love, make a pact and run away to the wilderness. Various authorities try to hunt for the children but a violent storm is brewing off-shore. The film features a cast of Anderson regulars including Jason Schwartzman and Tilda Swinton show up and Bill Murray and Frances McDormand are the young girl’s parents. Bruce Willis plays the local sheriff and Ed Norton plays the boy’s Khaki Scout troop leader. The two kids are played by Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward.
Moonrise Kingdom will be out on a limited release on May 25.
