Holy crap, you guys. The new upcoming Wes Anderson flick? OMG, so good.
First impressions: looks like a childhood adventure-fantasy turned up to eleven. Oversaturated color, snappy camerawork, super-dry humor like you always wanted to deliver when you were a preteen.
I mean, let’s be honest. Lord of the Flies works because, on some level (and perhaps even your normal level), you want to run away from home and live lawless and free in the woods. You want to hand-over-hand across a rope-strung river. You want to hit other kids with a club with nails in it.
Looks as though Wes Anderson has made that tragicomedy in full HD.
And did I mention the star-studded cast? I did not! I will do so now.
Either a) Anderson called in a bunch of personal favors, or b) he makes awesome movies and anybody in their right mind would want in on that. Perhaps a little of both. But either way, he has six–SIX–A-list actors in this thing. And from what we can tell, they’re all gonna be amazing.
May 25th can’t come soon enough.
