Watch: Jason Schwartzman's Cousin Ben Hosts A Screening Of 'Moonrise Kingdom' In Wes Anderson-Directed Video

After being nominated for screenplay back in 2001 for "The Royal Tenenbaums" and then for Best Animated Feature in 2010 for "Fantastic Mr. Fox," could Wes Anderson be headed back to the Kodak Dolby Theater (it will always be Kodak to us, *single tear*) with "Moonrise Kindom"? Given the strong box office and nearly universal critical acclaim, we'd wager it could come out of nowhere and surprise many (think Woody Allen's "Midnight In Paris" last year). But we'll leave that speculation for another day.

After being nominated for screenplay back in 2001 for "The Royal Tenenbaums" and then for Best Animated Feature in 2010 for "Fantastic Mr. Fox," could Wes Anderson be headed back to the Kodak Dolby Theater (it will always be Kodak to us, *single tear*) with "Moonrise Kindom"? Given the strong box office and nearly universal critical acclaim, we'd wager it could come out of nowhere and surprise many (think Woody Allen's "Midnight In Paris" last year). But we'll leave that speculation for another day.

Instead, here's a pretty sweet treat: in order to help get the word out about the film that is still rolling along in limited release, expanding week by week, Funny Or Die has a nice little exclusive video with Jason Schwartzman's troop leader Cousin Ben hosting a screening of the movie for his scouts. And it's directed by Wes Anderson. Meta! Don't worry, if you haven't seen the film, nothing will be spoiled here except for maybe how charming "Moonrise Kingdom" is, a film that in this writer's opinion is Anderson's finest effort since 'Tenenbaums.'

Don't take our word for it, go see it for yourself. Until then, watch the clip below.
