Bill Murray’s bizarre plug for Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom (2 videos)
So I came across this video tonight, a perfectly odd plug for what will undoubtedly be a perfectly odd Wes Anderson film titled Moonrise Kingdom. For those who don’t know, Bill Murray – in real life – is a weird guy. Don’t get me wrong, I love him, but that doesn’t change the fact he’s a weird guy.
So this video is sort of what I imagine hanging out with Bill Murray would be like. It’s funny, although you can never tell if it’s meant to be.
I’m sort of undecided about Wes Anderson overall. I usually enjoy his work well enough, but to borrow a line from Family Guy, “it insists upon itself.” Let’s put it this way: if he didn’t always have Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, Hugh Jackman, and the likes in his movies, I’m not so sure I’d watch them as often as I do. I’ll give Moonrise Kingdom a shot, though.
The trailer for the film is posted below the first video.
