Following his quirky departure into stop-motion animation with 2009's Fantastic Mr. Fox, indie director Wes Anderson is back to live action with his signature style in Moonrise Kingdom, and he's rounded up a top-notch cast that includes Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Frances McDormand, Bob Balaban and Tilda Swinton alongside Anderson regulars Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman.

In theaters May 25, Moonrise Kingdom is set on an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965. A pair of 12-year-olds (Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward) fall in love and run away together into the wilderness, and the peaceful island community must track them down as a violent storm brews off-shore.

Willis plays the local sheriff, Norton is a Khaki Scout troop leader, while Murray and McDormand play the young girl's parents.
