A 'Moonrise Kingdom' Special Edition Has Just Been Released And It's Beaut


The guys over at The Criterion Collection have sensed our collective yearning for more Wes Anderson, and they have come up with the goods. A super deluxe special edition Moonrise Kingdom has been released today and its swish packaging really lives up to Wes' meticulous aesthetic.

For starters it features brand new cover art by photorealist painter Michael Gaskell depicting Sam and Suzy's beachside camp. Get a load of that detail!

The Wes Anderson-approved special edition includes a restored 2K digital transfer, audio commentary featuring Wes, Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Jason Schwartzman and Roman Coppola, an original documentary about the film called Exploring the Set of 'Moonrise Kingdom', original audition footage, a booklet of essays and commentary from young writers, a map of New Penzance Island and other cute stuff.

All these goodies make us want to get our DVD collection happening again, starting right here. Cop it on DVD or Blu-Ray here
