A Poll. About Wes Anderson’s new project.
The last poll here at BFR was about the horrible line up of films April has to offer. I’m a bit surprised that the most looked forward to film of this month, according to all of you, is Your Highness. Folks, seriously? I hope that would change now that we have a clearer picture of the films’ receptions. Your Highness received exactly one third of the votes. But Hanna and Scream 4 came in a close second with 27% of the vote each. I have never seen a Scream movie, but if enough of you are looking forward to this sequel that much, I may have to do a marathon. African Cats got one vote. Good for you, whoever you are.
Some people choose the ‘other’ option mentioning Soul Surfer, Trust and none of the above. Yes, April is not such a great month for movies this year. No one voted for Madea’s Big Happy Family, but I have a feeling it’s going to make a billion dollars any way.
I’d like to poll you about Wes Anderson’s upcoming project Moonrise Kingdom. Now I like Anderson as much as the next white person. Besides Life Aquatic, he’s never let me down. But have seen the cast of Moonrise? It’s got Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman and Owen Wilson, of course (Wilson is only rumored, but let’s be honest, he’ll be in the movie). But also costarring is Frances McDormand, Bruce Willis, Tilda Swinton, and Edward Norton. I don’t know about you, but that sounds just too crazy to work. What are your expectations for the film?
