Moonrise Kingdom

January 12, 2012 § 1 Comment

Exciting news alert: there’s a new Wes Anderson movie waiting in the wings!

“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.”

Another reason you may or may not appreciate Moonrise Kingdom even more is that the titles were designed by one of my favourite artists, font creators, and fellow former co-inhabitor of the Pencil Factory in Greenpoint, Jessica Hische.

The math is easy:

Wes Anderson+ Bill Murray + Bruce Willis + Jessica Hische = what’s sure to be one of my favourite movies of 2012.

Watch the trailer.
