This is more like it! After our last update was a traditional and very dull character featurette for Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, Bill Murray shows us all how it’s done – by getting drunk on rum, wandering sets, and making fun of the director, cast, and crew of his new film Moonrise Kingdom.

I realise I’ve focused on the big Hollywood blockbusters as of late. You come to The Shootening and it’s all The Avengers this, The Dark Knight Rises that, but I swear that I’m not all comic book/superhero movies. No, I enjoy the indies just as much.

Anyway, to get myself through the long nights, my methadone was watching some DVDs. Of the many films I watched, two were Wes Anderson’s The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou and The Royal Tenenbaums. The Life Aquatic is the film that made me fall in love with Anderson’s films, such a brilliant mix of melancholy, wonder, and adventure. And when I watched Tenenbaums it had me in floods of tears from the get-go. I’d seen it before, but this time it crushed me. So heartbreakingly sad. It was amazing. By now I guess you’re wondering why the hell I’m telling you this. I’ll tell you why – it was a lengthy and meandering intro inform you of the release of the trailer to Wes Anderson’s (yeah, that guy again) latest movie Moonrise Kingdom. Shall we take a look?
