With all the fuss of the last few days, it's almost escaped our attention that Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom" is now only a few days away from hitting theaters: in the week since it premiered at Cannes, so many new films, news and trailers have arrived that it's a pleasant surprise to realize that the 'Moonrise' is going on limited release this Friday. And doubly so because, if our review and many others are to be believed, the film is a particular treat, and probably Anderson's finest live-action work in a decade.

With all the fuss of the last few days, it's almost escaped our attention that Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom" is now only a few days away from hitting theaters: in the week since it premiered at Cannes, so many new films, news and trailers have arrived that it's a pleasant surprise to realize that the 'Moonrise' is going on limited release this Friday. And doubly so because, if our review and many others are to be believed, the film is a particular treat, and probably Anderson's finest live-action work in a decade.

To keep the movie front-and-center in your minds, Focus Features have released a new featurette that sees Bill Murray (who admits he's drunk quite a bit of Sailor Jerry) introducing the film, his co-stars (including Frances McDormand, the "tall and Scottish" Tilda Swinton, the "psycho" Edward Norton and the "typecast" Bruce Willis) and the Rhode Island locations. It's as funny as you might expect from Murray, and a rather charming antidote to the the usual kind of thing we see when it comes to featurettes. Watch it below.

Elsewhere in Wes-world, the film's soundtrack is in stores today, and Pitchfork have glimpses of a couple of tracks from the record; one a touch of Alexandre Desplat's score, the other a marching-band track by Mark Mothersbaugh. Listen to the Desplat over at Pitchfork, and you can hear the Mothersbaugh track below. Finally, Shortlist Magazine commissioned a number of artists and graphic designers to come up with posters for the release of the film: you can see all of those below as well.
