One of the best, and unsung, movies of 2012 is coming to Blu-ray this Fall. Universal Studios Home Entertainment has just announced that Moonrise Kingdom will hit Blu-ray and DVD on Oct 16.
Director Wes Anderson put his auteur stamp on this film, which focused on the first love through the storybook eyes of children. Utilizing dead-pan humor and a brilliant cast, Moonrise Kingdom was one of the most unique films of the year and definitely should be in consideration for awards from the Oscars, Writers Guild of America (WGA), and Screen Actors Guild (SAG-AFTRA).
The film stars Bill Murray, Jared Gilman, Kara Hayward, Bruce Willis and Edward Norton. Anderson and Roman Coppola wrote the script.
Special features include 3 Featurettes:
- A LOOK INSIDE MOONRISE KINGDOM
- WELCOME TO THE ISLAND OF NEW PENZANCE: Bob Balaban narrates a series of guided tours from the locations of Moonrise Kingdom featuring Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, and Wes Anderson
- SET TOUR WITH BILL MURRAY: Bill Murray personally takes viewers on a tour of the Moonrise Kingdom sets.
