Bruce Willis, Edward Norton and Bill Murray star in the Moonrise Kingdom trailer from Wes Anderson

Edward Norton in Moonrise Kingdom

Wes Anderson seems to be one of those directors that you either love or hate.  All of his films (THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS, RUSHMORE, etc.) have the same quirky tone and dry humor that doesn’t appeal to everyone.  Personally, I’m a huge fan of Anderson’s and I even got a kick out of his last live action directorial effort, (he most recently directed the animated FANTASTIC MR. FOX) THE DARJEELING LIMITED.  So with that in mind, before you even watch the trailer for MOONRISE KINGDOM, know that even the most casual Anderson fan could spot this as one of his films from a mile away.  Everything about this says Wes Anderson.

The film has a great cast, including Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman, Francis McDormand, Tilda Swinton and Harvey Keitel.  And I have to also point out that it’s great to see Bruce Willis actually do some acting again.  It seems like it has been a while since he’s given something other than a phoned-in performance.
