Late Night Trailers: Moonrise Kingdom

Wes Anderson just made my Memorial Day weekend plans for me. I have to go see Moonrise Kingdom.  Technically, I knew this already, but the first trailer for what was already one of my most anticipated movies of 2012 means I must now repeat it.  Co-written by Anderson and Roman Coppola (who's set to return to directing this year himself), Moonrise is the tale of two twelve-year olds (newcomers Kara Hayward and Jared Gilman) who fall in love and run away together into the wilds of New England in 1965 only to be pursued by the adults in their lives, all determined to find them before a brutal storm hits.  In typical Wes Anderson fashion, the trailer is scored beautifully, drips with dry humor, and looks absolutely perfect.  The Futura font may be gone, but Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman remain.  What we lack in typography, we make up for with the presence of Edward Norton, Tilda Swinton, Bruce Willis, and Frances McDormand.  From the raw materials, I'd say we're looking at a possible new addition to the ever expanding list of favorite movies...

  1. As if I didn't need more reasons to be excited for Moonrise Kingdom, I fangirled so much when I realized Tilda was in this. Literally waved my arms around like a nut. Can't wait.
