WES ANDERSON’S MOONRISE KINGDOM SOUNDTRACK COMING MAY 21ST

Following the much acclaimed-animated feature FANTASTIC MR. FOX, Wes Anderson returns to live-action filmmaking with MOONRISE KINGDOM. The new movie world-premieres as the Opening Night film of next month’s Cannes International Film Festival; and opens in the UK on May 25th. Set amongst the widow's walks and Yankee traditions of 1965 New England, Anderson and co-screenwriter Roman Coppola create an incomparable tale of romance between rogue Khaki Scout Sam and the beautiful and troubled Suzy.

On May 21st, days before its theatrical release, UNIVERSAL MUSIC will release the soundtrack to MOONRISE KINGDOM Grounded in the elegiac compositions of classical composer Benjamin Britten, whose majestic choral NOYES FLUDDE ignites the film's young lovers, MOONRISE KINGDOM features masterworks performed by Leonard Bernstein and the New York Philharmonic as well as popular gems performed by French chanteuse Françoise Hardy and the legendary country troubadour Hank Williams.

As in all of Anderson's previous films, music is an essential element and once again it is used to masterful effect. MOONRISE KINGDOM includes an original suite by renowned film composer Alexandre Desplat as well as percussion compositions by longtime Anderson collaborator and Devo co-founder Mark Mothersbaugh. This soundtrack promises to be one of this year's most interesting and compelling releases.
