Dear Steve Zissou: You can almost see Ping Island from here….

Technically, this is the trailer for Moonrise Kingdom, scheduled for limited release on May 25. But really, it’s a two-minute rundown of all of Anderson’s visual devices: Boy scout uniforms; kids dressed in elaborate bird costumes; camp; camp plays; a scavenger hunt; a lighthouse; handwritten letters; Tang; a coonskin cap; a wine-swilling Bill Murray; tents; a vintage record player; an eye patch; a moped in a tree; a box kite; Jason Schwartzman; Indian canoes; wood panelling–good god, the wood panelling… and more. All in two minutes. Wes Anderson, you have outdone yourself.TG
