Moonrise Kingdom Looks a Lot Like Every Other Wes Anderson MovieBy: Chris Gabbard - April 13, 2012
This the new poster for the Wes Anderson flick Moonrise Kingdom. And surprise! It looks like every other Wes Anderson movie since The Royal Tenenbaums.
Don’t get me wrong, I think Wes Anderson is great. He just needs to stop making movies that all look alike. Maybe it’s just the posters. They could try releasing one that doesn’t include the entire cast staring meaningfully into the camera:
These two movies are exactly the same.
He even gets inanimate objects to stare meaningfully at the camera. How does he do it?
Moonrise Kingdom is set to premiere at Cannes in a few weeks. The new poster (in French) is part of the promotion.
Moonrise Kingdom is set on an Island off the coast of New England in the 60’s. A young boy and girl fall in love, and probably act quirky around each other. They run away together and the whole town goes searching for them.
My guess is it will be offbeat and bittersweet. I will alternate between loving it for the humor and hating it for trying so hard to be weird.
