New Poster for Moonrise Kingdom Makes the Film Even That Much More Enticing and Awesome

The Cannes Feature Film lineup is being announced in a couple of days, however we already know that Wes Anderson‘s Moonrise Kingdom is the opening film. In advance of the announcement, it seems that the good folks at the studio have just dropped a new poster. I really dig it as it fully captures the oddness that Wes Anderson films have.

I am not the hugest fan of Anderson, however when he is on he is really on. It seems with the trailer and this poster art, he is really on for this film. I am cautiously optimistic and am eager to see it.

The film stars Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman, Jared Gilman, and Kara Hayward. Moonrise Kingdom will open the Cannes Film Festival, and open in limited release on May 25th.

And as a refresher, here is the trailer for the film:

About the Film
Set on an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, MOONRISE KINGDOM tells the story of two twelve-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 more ways than anyone can handle. Bruce Willis plays the local sheriff. Edward Norton is a Khaki Scout troop leader. Bill Murray and Frances McDormand portray the young girl’s parents. The cast also includes Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman, and Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward as the boy and girl.
