This morning came the unveiling of the lineup at the Cannes Film Festival and among the surprises is the news that Wes Anderson's festival opener "Moonrise Kingdom" is also going to be playing In Competition as well -- the first time that's happened since Fernando Meirelles' "Blindness" in 2008. Will it have the juice to make it all the way to a Palme d'Or? The competition is fierce and we doubt it will happen, but at the very least, the film looks to have Anderson firing on all cylinders.

This morning came the unveiling of the lineup at the Cannes Film Festival and among the surprises is the news that Wes Anderson's festival opener "Moonrise Kingdom" is also going to be playing In Competition as well -- the first time that's happened since Fernando Meirelles' "Blindness" in 2008. Will it have the juice to make it all the way to a Palme d'Or? The competition is fierce and we doubt it will happen, but at the very least, the film looks to have Anderson firing on all cylinders.

The first clip from the movie has appeared over at AV Club and visually, it's pure Anderson. Already known for his compositions, which often find numerous characters sharing the same frame, here he takes it up a notch as the social services worker Tilda Swinton talks with a scout leader and a cop, Edward Norton and Bruce Willis, about the missing young man who has been struck by lightning. Look in the background and you'll see a staggering array of faces watching the conversation (including Bill Murray and Frances McDormand) but the fireworks are from the actors themselves, who are new to Anderson's world, and doing a pretty solid job.

Watch it below. "Moonrise Kingdom" opens on May 25th.
