Wes Anderson fans have long been waiting for the follow-up movie after the release of The Fantastic Mr. Fox. This year, Academy Award nominated director Wes Anderson will premiere his latest movie ‘Moonrise Kingdom’ at the 65th Cannes Film Festival. ‘Moonrise Kingdom’ was chosen, along with 21 other movies from different countries, as an official selection for the competition.
‘Moonrise Kingdom’ is set in a small coastal town by New England in the summer of 1965. It tells the story of two 12-year-old kids who fall in love and run away together. Citizens on the island join forces to look for the 2 kids, while dealing with the looming storm and the twists and turns brought about by trying to find the runaways. Anderson has once again managed to combine big stars with newbies in his new film. The film stars Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Frances Mc Dormand, Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman, Tilda Swinton, and Bob Balaban. It will be the first starring roles for Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward who play the two kids in the story. The movie is scheduled for theatrical release in the US on May 25.
