This morning, fans got a first look at Wes Anderson’s next film, Asteroid City, when a trailer and four photos were released.
The movie takes place in a fictional American desert town circa 1955. The itinerary of a Junior Stargazer/Space Cadet convention (organized to bring together students and parents from across the country for fellowship and scholarly competition) is spectacularly disrupted by world-changing events.
The much anticipated film stars Jason Schwartzman, Scarlett Johansson, and Tom Hanks. The stacked cast also includes stars such as Jeffrey Wright, Tilda Swinton, Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, Adrien Brody, Liev Schreiber, Hope Davis, Stephen Park, Rupert Friend, Maya Hawke, Steve Carell, Matt Dillon, Hong Chau, Willem Dafoe, Margot Robbie, Tony Revolori, Jake Ryan, and Jeff Goldblum.
The collaboration is a reunion among Anderson, Focus, and Indian Paintbrush following 2012’s Moonrise Kingdom.
Asteroid City premieres in theaters on June 16, 2023.
