Wes Anderson Moonrise Kingdom Trailer Released (VIDEO)

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.
