I’m not usually given to posting movie trailers, but for Wes Anderson, I’ll make an exception. The trailer for Moonrise Kingdom came out yesterday and it’s amazing. It definitely has the look and feel (and retro soundtrack) of a Wes Anderson film, with perhaps a bit more sepia-tone to match the 60′s time period (although no sign of the usual Futura typeface). Of course, the best part of an Anderson film is the distinctive dialogue, and the trailer is already rife with some great lines (Bill Murray, with no shirt, a bottle of wine, and an axe saying “I’m going to find a tree to chop down” is my favorite).
2012 is shaping up to be the best year in cinema in some time, and Moonrise Kingdom is sitting at the top of my list. If you wondering about the music in the trailer, the song is 1962′s “Le Temps De L’amour” by French pop singer, Françoise Hardy. Download the track and watch the trailer below:
