“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.”
Nothing resonates quite as much with us as a good old summer island mystery. Check out these short inside scoops with actor-extraordinaire Bob Balaban on the film’s stars Bill Murray, Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, and director Wes Anderson over at Inside Movies with Entertainment Weekly.
Bob gives his insight on the actors, offering such insight as “He’s laughing. I don’t think that is part of the scene.”
So enjoy these snippets from Focus Features in the links below!
This looks like it’s gonna be one very khaki-extraordinary-Francoise Hardy-sort-of -extravaganza of the summer. Definitely check out the Moonrise Kingdom site for an interactive look at a map of New Penzance Island, the fictitious island portrayed in the film.
Moonrise Kingdom will kick off the Cannes Film Festival on May 16, and premiere to audiences May 25.
This is the only time I’ve been consciously trying to capture a sensation, which is that emotion of when you’re a 12-year-old and you fall in love….I remember that being such a powerful feeling, it was almost like going into a fantasy world. It’s stuck with me enough that I think about it still.
