“Asteroid City,” the latest sci-fi comedy flick from Wes Anderson, is about to hit the big screen and blow the minds of fans with its pastel-colored, artsy vibes. But first, let’s dive into what’s going down in this movie.
Starring a massive lineup of celebs like Maya Hawke, Margot Robbie, Scarlett Johansson, and Tilda Swinton, this film’s got a bigger cast than most of Anderson’s other works. And guess what? Tom Hanks is making his debut in the Wes Anderson world, along with regulars like Jason Schwartzman and Ed Norton.
They filmed in Chinchón in 2021, and it’s all about a convention for young astronauts/space cadets that gets turned upside down by some wild events in 1955, like an unexpected alien invasion. The movie’s art director and set designer, Sonia Nolla, shared some dope pics of the sets on her website, showing off the desert city filled with carnival attractions, neon-lit motels, vending machines, and roadside diners, all wrapped up in that signature Anderson symmetry.
Get ready, ’cause “Asteroid City” is landing in theaters across the US on June 16th. Don’t miss out!
