Focus Features has debuted the first trailer for Wes Anderson‘s Moonrise Kingdom, featuring a great cast that includes Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton and Jason Schwartzman. The film tells the story of two twelve-year-olds (Jared Gilman, Kara Hayward) who fall in love, and decide to run away together into the wilderness. As the authorities attempts to track them down, the peaceful island community is thrown upside down.
The quirky preview is peculiar Wes Anderson at his best (or worst if you aren’t a fan) and this has all the looks of a delightfully offbeat comedy. Check out the trailer below or click over to Apple to see it in HD. Moonrise Kingdom will open on May 25.

Set on an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, MOONRISE KINGDOM tells the story of two twelve-year-olds who fall in love, make a secret pact, and run away together into the wilderness. As various authorities try to hunt them down, a violent storm is brewing off-shore — and the peaceful island community is turned upside down in more ways than anyone can handle. Bruce Willis plays the local sheriff. Edward Norton is a Khaki Scout troop leader. Bill Murray and Frances McDormand portray the young girl’s parents. The cast also includes Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman, and Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward as the boy and girl.
