‘Moonrise Kingdom': Meet Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Bill Murray and More — POSTERS

This might be a risky prediction, but Moonrise Kingdom looks like it could be Wes Anderson’s best movie to date. Some will say that The Royal Tenenbaums cannot and will not be topped — an admirable opinion. But there’s something especially charming, inventive and interesting about the upcoming Moonrise Kingdom that suggests that even Anderson’s 2001 masterpiece could be outdone.

The story follows a pair of pre-adolescent campers who run away on a romantic tryst, much to the chagrin of parents, scoutmasters, fellow campers, and a very didactic social services team. Check out the new interactive character posters below, and catch the movie in theaters on May 16.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
