Bill Murray Drinks And Is Merry In New ‘Moonrise Kingdom’ Featurette
Who doesn’t love Bill Murray? He’s one of the few veteran actors out there who can manage to tackle comedies and dramas while dishing out a great performance every single time. The plain fact that he’s been collaborating with Wes Anderson on ninety percent of his movies just makes it all the more sweeter, and we get to see that again in a couple of days with ‘Moonrise Kingdom.’
At this point we’ve already watched a couple of the typical but quirky behind-the-scenes featurettes from ‘Moonrise Kingdom,’ but none of them compare to this one we’re about to show you below. It involves Bill Murray walking us through a portion of a set while under the influence of spiced rum, which he admits to drinking halfway through the video.
Set on an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, ‘Moonrise Kingdom’ tells the story of two 12-year-olds who fall in love, make a secret pact, and run away together into the wilderness. As various authorities try to hunt them down, a violent storm is brewing off-shore – and the peaceful island community is turned upside down in every which way. The movie will be out in theaters this Friday, May 25th.
