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.

The AV Club premiered the clip below, featuring a stuffy de-accented Tilda Swinton demanding that Bruce Willis and Ed Norton's characters remand Sam (Jared Gilman) to juvenile authorities. In the background you can spot Anderson mainstay Bill Murray and Frances McDormand.

The film also stars Jason Schwartzman, newcomer Kara Hayward, and Harvey Keitel in a story about two kids who fall in love at a New England summer camp in the 60s and run away together, sending the adults in their lives into a calamitous whirlwind.

Anderson co-wrote the script with Roman Coppola, and the clip below highlights Anderson's distinct visual style and tone, as well as some rather spiffy costume design.

'Moonrise Kingdom' opens the Cannes film festival on May 16, followed by a limited theatrical release stateside on May 25. The film will finally go wide on June 8, just in time to escape the scorching summer heat in the cool confines of your local theater.
