4 featurettes for Wes Anderson‘s (The Royal Tenenbaums, The Fantastic Mr Fox) new movie Moonrise Kingdom have hit the web. The movie, set on a fictional New Panzance island in 1965, finds two 12-year-olds, Sam (Jared Gilman) and Suzy (Kara Hayward), fall in love and run away together into the wilderness. With various authorities on their trail and a violent storm brewing the once peaceful island is turned upside down.
The cast include Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman and Bob Balaban. Each featurette focuses on either Willis, Norton, Murray or Anderson himself and has Balaban commenting on the behind-the-scene footage in the familiar off-beat humour Anderson is known for. While the featurettes don’t explain much, if at all anything, about the movie it does give you a general sense of what the feel of the movie will be and, lets face it, if you’ve seen anything by Wes Anderson in the past (with the exception of The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou) you’re likely to be wanting to see more.
Moonrise Kingdom opens in theaters on May 25.
