Trailer for 'Moonrise Kingdom', Wes Andersen's new film

Earlier today the trailer for the upcoming Wes Anderson film Moonrise Kingdom was released, and from the looks of it he’s back in fine form. Here’s the description from the Apple Trailers page:

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.

I’m excited for the movie for a few specific reasons. The first is that it’s co-written with Roman Coppola, who also helped out on the writing duties of Darjeeling Limited along with Jason Schwartzman. I think the two have a really good rapport, and the things the create are pretty great. The cast, as always, is totally top notch. I’m excited for Ed Norton and Tilda Swinton especially. But what I find most interesting is that he set the film in the 1960’s, rather than giving the film that timeless quality which he tends to do. It still looks and feels exactly like a Wes Andersen film, perhaps most like Rushmore, but that’s not a problem to me.

    I can’t wait to see this. Parts of this remind me of Goddard’s Pierrot Le Fou.
