The first trailer has landed online for Wes Anderson’s coming-of-age comedy Moonrise Kingdom, and if you weren’t previously a fan of the director’s kookily offbeat style, chance are this won’t be the film to change your mind!
The film is set amid a New England island community in the mid- ’60s, and tells the story of a pair of twelve-year-olds who fall in love, make a secret pact and then run off together into the wilderness. However, a massive off-shore storm is brewing, and the authorities are anxious to recover the runaways before it eventually hits.
Take a look at the new trailer below…
The trailer couldn’t be more quirky if it tried, what with its patented Anderson cast of characters, from preternaturally composed kids to spectacularly ill-equipped parents, and whimsical soundtrack.
However, even if Anderson isn’t your bad, there’s no denying the fantastic cast on show, including Bruce Willis, Ed Norton, Frances McDormand, Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton and Jason Schwartzman. We particularly like the look of Willis’ local lawman, and Murray’s long-suffering husband and father.
Moonrise Kingdom arrives in the US on 25 May 2012, with a UK release expected later in the summer.
