The first official Moonrise Kingtom trailer video has been released for the upcoming 2012 film directed by Wes Anderson. Written by Anderson and Roman Coppola, Moonrise Kingdom stars a host of luminary actors in a story about a young girl and boy in love who run away from home.


Set in the 1960s, the Moonrise Kingdom trailer gives us a glimpse into the tale of two 12-year-old kids (Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward) who fall in love and make a secret pact to run away together into the wilderness. The disappearance of the kids results in the launch of a local search party to find them.

As the search party fans out to find the children, lead by a local sheriff played by Bruce Willis, a violant storm threatens the small island community. The film also stars Edward Nortan , Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman, Bill Murray and Frances McDormand.

From what we can see in the first official Moonrise Kingdom trailer video , this looks like a beautiful film in the making with delightfully entertaining dialogue and a wonderfully quirky vibe. The film is due to be released later this year.
