The first trailer for Wes Anderson's new film Asteroid City was released today. Its storyline is set in a fictitious American desert town in 1955.
An official synopsis of the film reads: "The itinerary of a Junior Stargazer/Space Cadet convention (organized to bring together students and parents from across the country for fellowship and scholarly competition) is spectacularly disrupted by world-changing events."
The upcoming film stars Jake Ryan, Jason Schwartzman, Tom Hanks, and Scarlett Johansson and will be released in select theatres on June 16, followed by a nationwide release on June 23. Roman Coppola, who previously worked on films such as Isle of Dogs, On the Road, The Seven Faces of Jane, and On The Rocks, co-wrote the plot.
