"Jiminy Cricket, he flew the coop!"
RUSHMORE, THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS, THE LIFE AQUATIC....Wes Anderson is one of cinema's most interesting directors. Fresh off of the stop-motion FANTASTIC MR. FOX, he's back to live-action with MOONRISE KINGDOM.
But there's just something about the trailer that feels very similar to MR. FOX. Maybe the yellow hue? Or the way the characters deliver each of their lines?
You can watch the trailer for MOONRISE KINGDOM below, but I found it extremely amusing to click through to YouTube and read some of the comments. One points out that Anderson is not using the Futura Bold font that has been standard in all of his previous trailers.
When the fan base is studying the fontage in advance of your movie, you know you're doing something right. I'm excited for this one.....
