Watch Six Clips of Wes Anderson’s ‘Moonrise Kingdom’ A Month Early

The first trailer for Wes Anderson’s upcoming Moonrise Kingdom came out in January, and since then stunts like interactive posters have helped build interest for the film. Now, with a month until the release of the latest picture from the mind behind The Royal Tenenbaums, a series of six charming clips from the film has been unveiled—and they don’t disappoint. The movie, set in 1965, focuses on two love-struck 12-year-olds who run off together into the wild as a deadly storm brews off the coast of the New England island where the action all takes place. As always in Anderson’s movies, though, it’s the wacky characters that steal the show. The new clips range from an introduction to the seemingly doomed locale of New Penzance to quickie character portraits of these Andersonian creations played by the likes of Jason Schwartzman, Frances McDormand, Bill Murray, Kevin Costner, and Tilda Swinton, and from what we can tell, they promise to be as out there, and destined to seep into our collective cultural memory, as ever.
