World-Premiering as the Opening-Night Film of the 2012 Cannes International Film Festival. MOONRISE KINGDOM is the new movie directed by two-time Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Wes Anderson (The Royal Tenenbaums, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Rushmore). Set on an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, MOONRISE KINGDOM tells the story of two 12-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 every which way. Bruce Willis (Die Hard) plays the local sheriff, Captain Sharp. Edward Norton (American History X) is a Khaki Scout troop leader, Scout Master Ward. Bill Murray (Rushmore) and Frances McDormand (Fargo) portray the young girl’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Bishop. The cast also includes Tilda Swinton (We Need to Talk About Kevin), Jason Schwartzman (The Darjeeling Limited), and Bob Balaban (Best In Show); and introduces Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward as the boy and girl.
