Wes Anderson’s “Moonrise Kingdom” to open 2012 Cannes Film Festival

Anyone concerned that this year’s Cannes film festival might not have the appropriate levels of candy-colored, symmetrical camera shots, Bill Murray or all-around quirk can now rest easily. The event will open with Wes Anderson’s new film “Moonrise Kingdom,” frontloading Cannes with all of the above, and if we had to bet on it, probably a Kinks song or two as well.

The newest film from the “Royal Tenenbaums” director will open the 65th Cannes festival on May 16 at the Grand théâtre Lumière of the Palais des Festivals. The movie is filmed from a script by Anderson and Roman Coppola, the son of legendary director Francis Ford Coppola, and features Anderson film vets Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman, as well as Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Frances McDormand and Tilda Swinton.

The Cannes press release describes “Moonrise Kingdom” as recounting “a tormented and surprising story of children and adults during the stormy days of the summer of 1965,” and can be read in full over at Deadline. The first trailer for the movie, which can be seen below, hit last month and while it looks exactly like you might expect an Anderson film starring Norton, Murray, Willis et al., there’s actually not much wrong with that in our opinion.

Of perhaps more interest than even the trailer, however, is the film’s poster, which was just released yesterday. Though it has as its focal point the two child stars of the movie, Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward, the margins go a long way toward establishing an aesthetic and tone that will be familiar but nonetheless exciting to fans of Anderson’s work. The poster can be seen below, but for additional images from the film, make sure to check out Slash Film.

Final Countdown

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Rev Up

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
