Check out the trailer for Wes Anderson's next Moonrise Kingdom

3 years agoby:

The trademarks are all there. MOONRISE KINGDOM looks very much like every other Wes Anderson movie and yet somehow looks all its own and very much like a movie to see in 2012. I can't imagine, if you're not a fan of Anderson's particular aesthetic, that you'd all the sudden warm to MOONRISE, but if you at any time enjoyed a Wes Anderson film, I think you'll enjoy this.

MOONRISE is Anderson's first period film, taking place in 1965 New England, where two camp kids runaway to be love. This turns their small town upside-down as the adults (played by Ed Norton, Bruce Willis, Frances McDormand and Tilda Swinton) attempt to track them down.

It's all very cute and clever and Wes Anderson and, for me, that's a good thing. I never tired of his schtick like some others did. Check the new trailer out below and see if it's your thing.

I've ben disappointed by some of Anderson's work (A Life Aquatic being most notable), but I always get drawn in by the bizarre faux epic nostalgia combo that he tends to muster. Edward Norton and Frances McDormand seem particularly fit for the Wes Anderson model.

I think this will be good. Was also a bit let down by Aquatic, but I actually liked Darjeeling a LOT more than I thought I would. A bit underrated if you ask me. Now we just need that whimsical, colorful, kiddy illustrationy poster . . .

Where can I get a poster of Bill Murray shirtless, carrying an ax and a bottle of hooch?

I keep on confusing Wes Anderson with Wes Craven. I'm watching this trailer thinking to myself "when is this gonna turn scary."

God 2012 looks awesome. Not only do you have great blockbusters (TDKR, Avengers, Hobbit, Spidey, Skyfall, Prometheus), but to also have movies from Wes Anderson, PT Anderson, Tarantino, etc.? SOLD

And for the record, I loved Life Aquatic. Was a BIT let down by Darjeeling, but Wes remains one of my top 5 living working directors.

FALSE.

No Futura font.
Anyways ... OHMUHGOSHOHMUHGOSH my body is ready.
Side note: I loved Darjeeling, 2nd favorite to Life Aquatic (I guess that makes me an inverse Wes Anderson fan)

Awesome trailer, Anderson's always has done good in my eyes. 'Darjerrling' was his weakest for me, not to say it's a bad movie by any means, just not as strong, but he totally rebounded with Fantastic Mr Fox. Looking forward to this!

I can imagine the pitch meeting:

"Okay, for my next movie we are gonna have a weird boy, people dressed funny, a couple guys with goofy moustaches, and very plain dialogue. Now, like my other movies, people will like it because they won't understand why any character acts the way they do, but when criticized viewers can simply reply 'It's sophisticated humor, you just don't get it.' Instead of knit hats or red jumpsuits we will use Boy Scout uniforms. We have a character who makes no sense and says odd things, so someone

Instead of knit hats or red jumpsuits we will use Boy Scout uniforms. We have a character who makes no sense and says odd things, so someone get Bill Murray on the phone. Oh, and when we make the trailer, include some French music for no reason. Production starts in 4 hours, so that should be plenty of time for me to finish the second half of the script."

So yeah, I'm a huge Wes Anderson fan.

If you don't understand why the characters act the way they do, maybe you just don't pay attention enough. Nothing is arbitrary.

Wow, that's a loaded cast...!

Just to see Bill Murray and Bruce Willis in a scene together is worth the price of admission alone. This looks great...I miss Ed Norton too. He should still be Bruce Banner.

This is now up there as one of my most anticipated of 2012. Love Wes Anderson's style, will not tire of it yet!

I struggled a bit with Darjeeling, but probably need to give it another go as I find his films benefit from multiple viewings

Interesting question, I can't say I can think of one instance where I have tired of a particular movie 'style' - as long as the film is good and the style fits, it shouldn't make a difference.

never got that, how should you get tired of a unique style?
do you get tired of 99,9% of the other movies out there which have no style whatsoever and look and feel the same?

...

I really dig Anderson, Darjeeling is a film I can't get into, and I try, then Fantastic Mr. Fox came out and was fucking great, one of the best and funniest PG films to come out in a while, and Life Aquatic is probably his best. However, I am getting a bit tired of his trademark stiff dialogue, it was funny before but it's wearing it's welcome for sure, it started with Darjeeling and found a welcome new home on Fox. So we'll see, least his soundtrack is gonna' be pro Hipster Doofus!

Movie looks great. Can't wait to see Ed Norton in a Wes Anderson flick.

The Royal Tenenbaums still remains his masterpiece.
