Moonrise Kingdom

Though our own Jeremy Kirk and Alex Billington have already seen Moonrise Kingdom (read both of their reviews here and here), I'm still with a majority of you in waiting until the film expands to a wider release and hits a theater nearby. However, that doesn't stop us from enjoying a hilarious and very meta piece of marketing for the film featuring Jason Schwartzman in character as scout leader Cousin Ben, showing Wes Anderson's film to his troop from the film itself. This could result in a major paradox sending Doctor Emmett L. Brown into a frenzy, but it's a hilarious video to keep audience awareness high.

Here's the promo for Moonrise Kingdom, which Wes Anderson directed himself, for Funny or Die:

Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom, his seventh feature film, was filmed on an island in New England. It recounts a tormented and surprising story of children and adults during the stormy days of the summer of 1965 (watch the trailer here). The cast includes: Edward Norton, Bruce Willis, Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton, Frances McDormand and Jason Schwartzman as well as Kara Hayward and Jared Gilman playing the two young lovers. Focus Features already opened the film in limited US theaters on May 25th, after first premiering at the Cannes Film Festival. Stay tuned for more updates! Visit the film's official website here.

Schwartzman's screen time in Moonrise is way too short! 🙂 Funny guy, love him more as a person than an actor haha!
