The trailer for Wes Anderson‘s latest film, Moonrise Kingdom, is finally here. The film stars Jared Gilman, Kara Hayward, Bruce Willis, Jason Schwartzman, Tilda Swinton, Frances McDormand, Edward Norton and Bill Murray and it’s about a pair of lovers who flee their town, causing a wide search to find them.
Anderson is known for making quirky little indie comedies (The Darjeeling Limited & Bottle Rocket) that are rarely bad and Moonrise Kingdom looks like another exceptional piece of work. I’m really digging the cast he’s managed to gather together, especially the addition of Norton and Willis.
Apple has the trailer in HD or you can check it out below.
Set on an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, MOONRISE KINGDOM tells the story of two twelve-year-olds who fall in love, make a secret pact, and run away together into the wilderness. As various authorities try to hunt them down, a violent storm is brewing off-shore — and the peaceful island community is turned upside down in more ways than anyone can handle. Bruce Willis plays the local sheriff. Edward Norton is a Khaki Scout troop leader. Bill Murray and Frances McDormand portray the young girl’s parents. The cast also includes Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman, and Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward as the boy and girl.
