18. "Moonrise Kingdom"
In theaters: May 25, 2012
Director: Wes Anderson
Cast: Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman
Lowdown: Set in the 1960s, a young boy and girl fall in love and run away, setting off a furor on the small island where they live.
Drew McWeeny says: Willis is the town sheriff, Norton is a camp leader, and Murray and McDormand play the parents of the girl. I'm sure Anderson's got a lot of other great names and faces in store, too, and this is one of those scripts where I started to read it and realized I don't want to know what's coming. I think Anderson still has way more hits than misses, and I'm always rooting for him. I love that he co-wrote this one with Roman Coppola, too, whose "CQ" is wildly undersign.
