Asteroid City--Wes Anderson director, release June 16 & June 23rd

Recommended Posts

Did not see a thread for this summer movie, so thought I'd put it out there. Our family enjoy his movies quite a bit. I haven't heard anything beyond a rumored appeal, but I saw that the initial rating was 'R' and that Anderson was to appeal that designation. (brief nudity or some such was the mention).

This is the first of two upcoming Anderson movies. The second, The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar, has no official release date as of yet but is supposed to also debut this year.

Asteroid City has a very large ensemble cast and many of the usual talented stars that feature in Anderson directed films. It is another film that is rumored to be a Cannes selection. (I mentioned that Killers of the Flower Moon is under consideration in that thread).

I have no trailer at this time and there have only been one or two movie stills, but I listed the cast below. The info about the plot is scarce and consists of:


The itinerary of a Junior Stargazer convention is spectacularly disrupted by world-changing events.

  The movie is apparently set circa 1950s and is a romance.


Tilda Swinton, Adrien Brody, Tom Hanks, Margot Robbie, Rupert Friend, Jason Schwartzman, Scarlett Johansson, Bryan Cranston[, Hope Davis, Jeff Goldblum, Jeffrey Wright, Liev Schreiber, Tony Revolori, Matt Dillon, Sophia Lillis, Steve Park, Maya Hawke, Fisher Stevens, Jake Ryan, Ethan Josh Lee, Edward Norton, Steve Carell, Hong Chau, Willem Dafoe, Grace Edwards, Aristou Meehan, Rita Wilson, and Jarvis Cocker.

Here's Maya Hawke on set.
