Wes Anderson's 'Moonrise Kingdom,' opening this week in limited release, is what we've come to expect from Anderson, the mind behind 'Rushmore,' 'The Royal Tenenbaums,' and 'The Fantastic Mr. Fox' -- somehow completely artificial and entirely heartfelt, loaded with dry punchlines that, somehow, bring tears to your eyes. The story of two 12-year-olds who embark on a runaway adventure of love, the entire film takes place on an Island called Penzance; that's not a name picked at random.
Does anybody have a list of the movies Bill Murray could have been in if the notoriously hard-to-reach actor had only checked his messages? Apparently we can add one more mega-movie franchise to that healthy roster of missed opportunities, because Murray confirms that he could have been in ‘Iron Man,’ only Robert Downey Jr. couldn’t get a hold of him.
Bruce Willis has five movies due in theaters between now and the end of the year. The parade of films starts with Wes Anderson’s ‘Moonrise Kingdom’ and ends with ‘Looper,’ Rian Johnson’s time-traveling thriller. In between, he’ll co-star in a few massive summer blockbusters and continue filming a fifth ‘Die Hard’ movie. But he has little interest in talking about those efforts in this fascinating new interview, though he does reveal which of his films is his favorite. (You won’t be able to guess which one it is.)
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.'
'Moonrise Kingdom' is the most Wes Anderson movie ever made. Only 'Fantastic Mr. Fox' is less connected to reality, and that's just because foxes don't really talk. It takes place in an alternate universe nostalgic for a dozen different storybook childhoods, none of which ever existed, but are presented with a precision that bespeaks a world that is fully developed...somewhere.
It is mannered and preposterous, but hilarious, sweet, melancholy, invigorating and gorgeous to look at and to listen to. It is Wes Anderson's best movie since 'Rushmore,' though more confident and complete of a film than anything he's done. It is (deep breath before I say this) my favorite film of the year so far.
There's plenty of activities and events that families will be doing on Memorial Day weekend, but what about going to the movies to see a master at work? We're referring to Wes Anderson's latest comedy/drama 'Moonrise Kingdom.' Do you want to find out more on the film? Of course you do. Then what you should do is check out the new series of featurettes.
Wes Anderson's 'Moonrise Kingdom' is set to not only open the Cannes film festival, but it will play In Competition for the coveted Palme d'Or as well. But that's not all the 'Moonrise Kingdom' news for today -- a new clip was released and it expands a little on what we know about the film so far.
We're getting the summer kicked off right with some action packed blockbusters and a new film from visionary director Wes Anderson in May. If you're looking for superheroes, aliens, or just a simple, pleasant comedy, we've got you covered.
'Moonrise Kingdom' is one of the most anticipated films of the year. Wes Anderson's first live action film since the woefully divisive 'The Darjeeling Limited,' and his first effort since 'The Fantastic Mr. Fox,' Anderson teams with Roman Coppola (son of Francis Ford, brother of Sofia) for his latest.
We had thought that perhaps Wes Anderson, no stranger to New York City, might premiere 'Moonrise Kingdom', his latest film, at the upcoming Tribeca Film Festival (Anderson has been no stranger to screenings and Q&A's in Tribeca). But Anderson and Focus Features clearly had their sights set a little higher.
