‘I’ve Got A Little Bit Of Rum In Me Now!!’
Bill Murray Gives Us A Tour Of Wes Anderson's MOONRISE KINGDOM Set!!

I am – Hercules!!

MOONRISE KINGDOM is the latest from Wes Anderson, who has never made a bad film.

This opens in New York and Los Angeles this week. Which makes me very sad I moved away from Los Angeles 18 months ago.

I can't wait to see this.  Bill Murray and Bruce Willis in the same comedy?  Holy socks!

Here's the trailer, which is slightly less new:

    Love Bill Murray... not so hot on Anderson anymore...

    by some dude

    Loved the Royal Tennebaums, really enjoyed the Life Aquatic but after that his movies have seemed like Burton's latest, parodies of his own style except he doesnt get that himself.

    I think many of us like him because his movies are all based on the writing, the characters and how the two interact. Even if you find him a bit "twee". It's still refreshing to see a guy making movies in the Mike Nicholas mold yet with an identifiable visual and music style. Tho, I admit, his films aren't for everyone. That being said, The Fantastic Mr Fox was Fantastic!!

    by Logan_1973

    And to hell with Ghostbusters 3.

    'Never made a bad film'?

    by Negator76

    I'm gonna give Herc the benefit of the doubt here, and assume The Darjeeling Limited must still be sitting unseen in his NetFlix queue.

    It's not really quirky by any chance?

    by Mugato5150

    Just a wild guess.

    Bill Murray can sell anything by not selling it.

    by Brank Hud

    I would want to see this now if I had no idea about any of it. But I do and I already do. And anyone that is anti-Anderson, I think you lack all sense of the aesthetic. It seems like he just uses clever blocking, but he's doing it over and over again and he's the only one who can do it so well and so consistently. It's like music. When you hear Mark Knopfler play guitar, you can tell in the first three milliseconds that you're hearing Mark Knopfler play guitar. Having a recognisable style is a sign of talent, not of self-parody. Personally I find the entire Anderson-verse a comfortable fantasy land to return to. He understands that movies are not real life. I think some filmmakers are confused about that. Example: Batman does not need to exist in the "real world", and pretending that he does introduces problems when we need to suspend too much disbelief. But I digress! Bill Murray and Wes Anderson are awesome and that's all!

    What a magical day for the internet!

    by Bass Ackwards

    Prometheus feature, Master teaser, Bond teaser, Anchorman 2 teaser, and Bill Murray living la vida loca on a Wes Anderson set.

    my thoughts exaclty mugato.

    by borbafett

    rushmore was absolutely incredible. life aquatic was right there with it. royal tenenbaums wasn't as great, but it had it's moments. fantastic mr. fox was fantastic. but dajeering was incredibly unfunny and totally unmemorable.

    Oh Billy

    by Glenn

    Why did you make me nose-spit my half-pump vanilla latte all over my old, shitty laptop? Do you HAVE to go and be so effortlessly funny, day in and day out? Have you ever told a bad joke in your life (and I don't mean the ones that weren't your own -- I'm staring you down hatefully, "Ghostbusters 2.") I hope you and Wes have a long life together. Peace out.

  • They're just not the kind of people I'd want to have a cup of tea with. No offence.

    I'll take

    by John Baker

    a primary color palette and walking in slow motion to an obscure 60's B-Side any day of the fucking week. Never understood people who dislike Wes Anderson. His critics always overcomplicate his movies. He is a minimalist in the best possible way, and it shows in every area of his films. Simple early punk and rock songs. Limited color palette. Still and extended shots. Low key performances and dialog. It's refreshing to see a director who can keep his films free of pop star cameos, music video direction, or having his characters scream their lines like Will Ferrell every 5 minutes. With all the banal shit that is passed off as film these days people single out Wes Anderson for mockery? Seriously?

    by Brank Hud

    yep, well said.

  • I'd rather watch something that's not as tedious as looking at a curious george book.

    I'd love to know the attraction of The Royal Tenenbaums

    by matthooper8

    It's certainly not bad, it's ok, but it's nowhere near Rushmore or Zissou. I would also like to know Anderson's attraction to killing and hurting dogs.

    Wes Anderson...

    by Jon Forbing

    Like any director, has a style that permeates each of his movies. His is more extreme, like Burton or the 80's work of Verhoeven, you can tell it's his in a few frames. Within that style, he has made a series of films, of varying success. You're either a fan or you're not. Discussing it is interesting, arguing about it is stupid. The end.

  • May 22, 2012, 2:58 p.m. CST

    Wes Anderson, not for "everyone"

    by animatronicmojo

    But is definitely for me. I love them all- and yes can remember many hilarious, brilliant and touching moments and performances in, as well as the entire move that is, "The Darjeeling Limited." Can't wait to see this. I hope he never changes his style up- the films all works so well together that way, like a beautifully bound box set on the bookshelf.

    My dream Wes Anderson project is...

    by tehBIGIvan

    ... to have him do a Blues Brothers remake.

    BTW, just for the record...

    by animatronicmojo

    Hands-down, the best movie I've seen this year.
