There few other directors whose soundtrack is so heavily ingrained with their films as Wes Anderson and his works. With his upcoming Moonrise Kingdom on the cusp of release we finally have the full soundtrack details, including a piece of score from Alexandre Desplat. It was previously revealed that Devo front man Mark Mothersbaugh, who scored Anderson‘s first three films, had a hand in composing.
