Wes Anderson films usually come with fantastic ensemble cast and his upcoming feature, Moonrise Kingdom, may very well rival his best. Including Bill Murray, Harvey Keitel, Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman and newcomers Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward, one may have some trouble figuring out all the roles. Thankfully, Focus Features have come to the rescue with a great new featurette (via First Showing), packed with interviews and behind-the-scenes looks. If this three-minute piece isn’t enough, Trailer Addict also has around 20 minutes of b-roll from the film which we’ve embedded below.. But with the film arriving later this month, I’m going to avoid these for a better experience on first viewing.
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.
