After debuting at the Cannes Film Festival, Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom received glowing review after glowing review, saying Anderson was "at his very best" in this "very beautiful and funny movie about grief and sorrow." Moonrise Kingdom opens this weekend in the U.S. Those familiar with Anderson's previous work (Rushmore, The Royal Tennenbaums, The Life Aquatic to name a few) have a good sense of the kind of movie it is. Still, it's been hard to penetrate a marketplace dominated by sequels and big-budget tentpoles — more namely, The Avengers.
No wonder Focus Features had Bill Murray give a funny video tour of the production — guided, if you will, by spiced rum. Murray breezes through the cast — Frances McDormand, the "psycho" Edward Norton, the "tall and Scottish" Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman, and a "typecast" Bruce Willis — before taking a few digs at the movie's sets and Anderson's costume design and individual pant-length preferences. watch the video and check out the new posters >> Posted 05.22.12 by Ryan
