There are about a million reasons to look foward to the arrival of warmer weather each year, but for cinephiles, one of the biggest is the summer movie season. This year’s crop looks like a nicely varied one, and two of the titles I’ve been most eager to see couldn’t be more different. Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus seems as serious and futuristic as Wes Anderson‘s Moonrise Kingdom does whimsical and retro, but they both look pretty fantastic if you ask me. Check out new images from both films after the jump.

The trailer debut for the new Wes Anderson film, Moonrise Kingdom, quickly created hopes that the movie will carve out a spot in the upper tier of Anderson’s output. Now the poster for the picture continues the Moonrise roll — this is an exquisitely-designed one-sheet that is like a grab bag of well-established Anderson elements. But it isn’t too familiar; rather the image has a lot of life, despite the severity of the two kids that command center stage. Check it out in full below. Read More »
One of my most anticipated films of the year now has a trailer and I’m over the moon about it. The film is Moonrise Kingdom, the latest from the great Wes Anderson. It stars Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton and Jason Schwartzman in the story of two twelve year olds (Jared Gilman, Kara Hayward) who fall in love and run away into the woods leaving an entire community on the lookout.

If 2012 is the end of the world, that’s all right with me. Hollywood has overstocked the Mayan calendar’s final year with so many potentially amazing movies that trying to cut it down to a top ten was virtually impossible. How could movies like The Amazing Spider-Man, Brave or Lincoln not be on this list? Ten then became twenty, which was more satisfying but there were still a few major films lingering.
So, while I could have easily done 30, here are my ten most anticipated films with a bloated honorable mention list. Is your most anticipated on the list? Read More »

Yup, that’s Michael Giacchino striking the goofy pose in the header image, but don’t let the silliness fool you — he’s one of the hottest film and TV composers working today, and one of the main reasons you should be excited about the rest of this post. After the jump:
- Listen to ten minutes of Michael Giacchino’s score for John Carter
- Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained could be getting an unusual take on Frank Sinatra’s “My Way”
- Wes Anderson reunites with Fantastic Mr. Fox composer Alexandre Desplat for Moonrise Kingdom
- The Artist ponders a concert tour with live orchestra

Even as I’m rushing to catch up on the 2011 films I’ve missed before the end of the year, I’m already looking forward to the crop of films that are due to open next year. Focus Features has just announced release dates for three of its upcoming releases I’m most curious about: Wes Anderson‘s Moonrise Kingdom, Paul Weitz‘s Being Flynn, and Lorene Scafaria‘s Seeking a Friend for the End of the World. Details after the jump.

Not too long ago, it seemed like every new movie in the works was some spin on the doomed paranormal romance a la Twilight. Now, Hollywood’s new obsession seems to be wedding-themed comedies. Thanks to the recent successes of Bridesmaids and The Hangover Part II, Hollywood is apparently intent on producing any wedding-based comedy it can get its hands on. The latest project in this vein is Who Invited Her?, based on a pitch by Sascha Rothchild about a woman who tags along on a bachelor party getaway.
Reese Witherspoon is attached to star, as well as produce through her company Type A Films. Gary Foster and Russ Krasnoff are also signed on to produce. Rothchild will be writing the script, which is said to be — of course — “in the spirit of Bridesmaids.” [The Hollywood Reporter and Variety]
After the jump, Bob Balaban joins Wes Anderson’s latest.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
In early May, Focus Features bought distribution rights to the new Wes Anderson film, Moonrise Kingdom, and issued an announcement of the full cast along with a plot description.
Or: almost the full cast. One actor who has been rumored for the film for some time is Harvey Keitel, but he was not among the announced cast list. Now he has been confirmed as being part of the movie. Along with that news, we’ve got the first images of some of the film’s sets, and of Edward Norton in costume (above) as a boy scout leader and Bill Murray being Bill Murray. That’s all after the break. Read More »
