Alert! Alert! I don’t know how this happened, but we’re behind on our hipster news—quick, someone bring me the patchouli oil—I need a sniff! Ah, that’s better. Listen man, we can’t just let this kind of stuff pass us by. I mean, here we are at what might be the hipster capital of the world and no one has even mentioned Wes Anderson in weeks…dare I say, months? It ain’t right. We’ll lose our street cred. How did I not even know Anderson had this INSANE cast lined up? Check it: Bill Murray, Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Frances McDormand, Jason Schwartzman, Tilda (muthafuckin’!) Swinton and Owen Wilson. I don’t care if they all just gather in a room, smoke, drink and stand around looking as cool as they are; I am in. But in reality (film reality), they’ll be running around neighborhoods, looking for a couple of hipster tweens and considering how kick-ass they all (most of them) are, this should make for an interesting couple of hours.
Moonrise Kingdom is the story of a couple of 12 year old lovebirds (first time actors, Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward) who decide to run away together, throwing the town into a panic and spurring various groups to assemble search parties. McDormand and Murray play the young girl’s parents; Willis is the town sheriff and Norton, a camp counselor. The film is set in 1960s New England, so I’m hoping for some great threads and groovy tunes.
Focus Features will distribute Moonrise Kingdom, which is filming in Rhode Island and set for a 2012 release. This has been a Pajiba Hipster Update, you may now resume your regularly scheduled activities.
