Here is a Trailer For a New Wes Anderson Movie

It is called Moonrise Kingdom and I have nothing to really say about it except that I'm somewhat intrigued by Anderson's discovery of the handheld camera and the unusual (for Anderson, anyway) 1.85:1 aspect ratio and that I wish it were Meryl Streep with that bullhorn instead of Frances McDormand; she was so infectious in Fantastic Mr. Fox and I want to see her and Anderson collaborate in live-action. And... and... Cool treehouse? I don't know. Your turn.


  • I can't wait to see this. I've watched the trailer numerous times, and May can't come soon enough.

    I'm gonna go find a tree to chop down.

    "What kind of bird are you?" is my new favorite pick-up line.

  • SD says:

    I want to be excited, I really do, but it has been the law of diminishing returns with Anderson's movies.

    Nevertheless I love the look and the tone and the cast has some great additions to the Anderson stable.

    Nice, all hipsters rejoice.
    And is it me or Jason Schwartzman channeling Lt. Aldo Reine?

  • Serena says:

    MOONRISE KINGDOM is hardly Anderson's first flirtation with hand-held camerawork; as early as THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS he used it for the suicide attempt scene, in fact he uses it quite frequently for serious moments, especially deaths. The fact that he doesn't lean on it like 86% of modern filmmakers is just one reason why he's so unique.

  • Jake says:

    I don't enjoy Anderson's movies as much as other filmgoers because the characters act too withdrawn for my liking. My favorite part in any of his films is in "The Royal Tenenbaums" when Gene Hackman gives Ben Stiller the dalmatian from the fire truck to replace his dead dog, and Stiller suddenly starts crying about the rough year he before Hackman affectionately comforts him. That was well-acted emotion.
