Moonrise Kingdom

The first trailer for the highly anticipated return of a live-action Wes Anderson film on the big screen already wowed fans of the quirky filmmaker, and now the materials hyping the movie are keeping with that trend. Though heavily Photoshopped posters dominate the marketing circuit nowadays, the first poster for Moonrise Kingdom is truly classy and definitely a piece of art. In a vast forest, our two young runaway lovers Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward stand, almost defiantly. Are they waiting for love? Waiting to grow up? Or just waiting for their inept friends and family to find them? We'll find out soon. Poster below!

Here's the first poster for Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom from Moviefone (click for larger version):
