Film Preview: Moonrise Kingdom

Wes Anderson

Usually when something is ‘trending’ all over Twitter it means one of several things.

1 Lady Gaga has a new song out.

2 Justin Bieber has a new haircut.

3 Someone has died.

4 Someone hasn’t died, but everyone is saying they have.

However occasionally something really exciting is trending, and today it’s the turn of Moonrise Kingdom, a new movie on the way by Wes Anderson.

Starring Bruce Willis, Imelda Staunton, Edward Norton, Bill Murray (5th WA movie), Frances McDormand, Harvey Keitel and Jason Schwartzman it looks like it might be a goodie.

Personally I think after Bottle Rocket and Rushmore, Anderson has yet to properly fulfill his potential as a writer and director, having said that ALL of his movies are still better than 99% of films that come out of Hollywood.

You’ll have to wait though as it’s not out until May 2012 – here is quick look at the trailer.
