See Maya Hawke, signs of alien life, & chaos ensue in the trailer for Wes Anderson’s Asteroid City
Get ready for another Wes Anderson film to make you feel starry-eyed. This time, quite literally.
Today, the trailer dropped for Wes Anderson's latest film, Asteroid City, which sees a series of inexplicable events and adorable conundrums unfold at a "Junior Stargazer convention" in an American desert town in 1955. The film, which he co-wrote with frequent collaborator Roman Coppola, arrives in theaters June 16. As usual, the filmmaker is bringing back a handful of his favorite stars to appear in the ensemble cast (including Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Scarlett Johansson, Edward Norton, Stephen Park, Tony Revolori, Jason Schwartzman, Tilda Swinton, and Jeffrey Wright), as well as some newcomers to the Anderson-verse (such as Steve Carell, Hong Chau, Bryan Cranston, Hope Davis, Rupert Friend, Tom Hanks, Maya Hawke, Margot Robbie, Jake Ryan, and Liev Schreiber).

In the trailer, a handful of personalities converge at a children's astronomy convention on Asteroid Day in Asteroid City, commemorating when a meteorite fell to the town. Jason Schwartzman and the boy he's looking after (Eighth Grade breakout Jake Ryan) seem to come across interactions from extraterrestrial life, and of course, very charming chaos looks like it's set to ensue. There's glimpses of Maya Hawke as an instructor to the young space cadets, Tom Hanks in his Anderson film debut, some incredible retrofuturism production design, and a whole lot more to look forward to.
