There are some notable changes we’ve seen in the trailer and promotional materials for Wes Anderson’s upcoming film, ‘Moonrise Kingdom,’ which tells the story of two kids who flee from what looks like a summer camp in New England and send their small town on a wild goose chase to look for them. Anderson has swapped his usual standby Rolling Stones and ’60s rock for the smooth yé-yé sounds of Françoise Hardy and a fancy script typeface instead of his usual Futura, Bruce Willis.
There’s also a lot of the same: the returns of regular collaborators Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman, the precocious kids, the aesthetics.
This week, seven interactive online movie posters were introduced for the film, each one showcasing a different character with six panels each of clickable photos, character descriptions, quotes, screenshots and more. We also get the first look at Bruce Willis as Captain Sharp, leader of the search party for the runaway, amorous Sam Shakusky. Ed Norton, who plays Scout Master Ward, the shorts-wearing leader of the Camp Ivanhoe Khaki Scouts, can be seen at Yahoo! Movies.
Moonrise Kingdom will premiere May 16th as the opener of the Cannes Film Festival before beginning its release in the States on May 25th.
