Director Wes Anderson’s new heartwarming and charming comedy “Moonrise Kingdom” opens in a limited release in AMC Theatres beginning this Friday, May 25th.
In honor of the opening, Focus Features has released a new special feature in which Bill Murray (one of the film’s stars) provides viewers with a tour of the set. Murray has collaborated with Anderson on all of the director’s previous films (with the exception his 1996 feature debut “Bottle Rocket”) and is as such the perfect man to introduce audiences to Anderson’s latest eccentrically hilarious creation.
Take a look at the tour and synopsis for the film below.
"Moonrise Kingdom" is the new movie directed by two-time Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Wes Anderson (“The Royal Tenenbaums,” “Fantastic Mr. Fox,” “Rushmore”).
Set on an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, "Moonrise Kingdom" tells the story of two 12-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 every which way. Bruce Willis plays the local sheriff, Captain Sharp. Edward Norton is a Khaki Scout troop leader, Scout Master Ward. Bill Murray and Frances McDormand portray the young girl’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Bishop. The cast also includes Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman, and Bob Balaban; and introduces Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward as Sam and Suzy, the boy and girl.
