Puppy love. It can make kids do stupid things. In Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom, for which the first trailer was just released today, it causes Suzy and Sam to run away from their “normalish” lives to live on a small island together relying on Sam’s boy scout abilities to survive. This, predictably, doesn’t go well with their families or the community. And in usual Wes Anderson fashion, an interesting cast of characters come out of the woodwork to aid in the search — uncovering more than expected about themselves and those around them.
Moonrise Kingdom stars Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Tilda Swinton, Bill Murray, Frances McDormand and Jason Schwartzman, Harvey Keitel, Kara Hayward and Jared Gilman.
Moonrise Kingdom runs away to US theaters on May 25, 2012.
