Fun Thing to Buy of the Day: ‘Moonrise Kingdom’


Wes Anderson’s latest piece of hand-stitched cinema, Moonrise Kingdom, comes out on DVD and Blu-ray tomorrow. Not only is it one of Andersons best films ever, but these releases come with all sorts of bonus goodies that’ll let you spend even more time on that invented New England island: three featurettes (including a set tour with cast member Bill Murray), a pseudo documentary about the island filmed with narrator Bob Balaban, and a “Making of” segment. Of course, it’ll almost definitely get the Criterion treatment at some point down the line, but who has that kind of patience?
