Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom to open Cannes Festival


We haven’t heard too much information yet about what will be shown at this year’s Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France, but now we know what’s going to be opening it: Wes Anderson’s upcoming movie Moonrise Kingdom! This isn’t too much of a surprise, considering the movie’s star-studded cast (Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Bruce Willis, Tilda Swinton) and the fact that Wes Anderson has never showed a movie at the festival before.

We also just saw the new poster for Moonrise Kingdom yesterday, and I’ll just say that everything about this movie looks thoroughly Anderson. Which is a great thing in my book. The Cannes Film Festival and Moonrise Kingdom open May 16th in France, and Moonrise opens May 25th in the United States.
