Here's the first clip from Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom, which has been announced to open the 2012 Cannes Film Festival.
Wes Anderson (The Royal Tenenbaums, Fantastic Mr. Fox) directs this comedy drama set in the summer of ’65 where two 12-year-old lovebirds run away together into the wilderness. The all-star cast includes Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Frances McDormand and Bill Murray.
A peaceful community resides on an island off the coast of New England. When news breaks that two kids have gone missing, the district starts to flip. With the local sheriff (Willis), the girl’s parents (Murray and Frances McDormand) and a Khaki Scout troop leader (Norton) all trying to stabilise the situation, the search threatens to capsize when a violent storm begins to brew off-shore.
The film opens in New Zealand on Thursday 30 August.
