EXCLUSIVE CLIP: Wes Anderson's 'Moonrise Kingdom' Will Open This Year's Cannes Film Festival (VIDEO, PHOTOS)

It's always a big deal to have your film appear at Cannes, let alone the opening night, and this year that honour goes to director Wes Anderson.

Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom will premiere tonight on the first evening of the glamorous festival, which means stars Bruce Willis, Ed Norton appearing on the red carpet at La Croisette.

To celebrate, we have this EXCLUSIVE CLIP (above) of the film, which tells the story of two young lovers fleeing their New England town and their parents setting out to find them.

Kara Hayward and Jared Gilman play the star-crossed pair, while Bill Murray and Frances McDormand play the girl's anxious parents. And they enlist the help of the local Sheriff - that'll be Mr Bruce Willis.

Tilda Swinton and Harvey Keitel also appear, making for a typically pedigree offering from Anderson, previously celebrated for his Royal Tenenbaums, The Fantastic Mr Fox, Rushmore and The Darjeeling Limited.

Check back here later for the latest video and pictures from the Cannes Film Festival's opening day. In the meantime, some pictures below from the dreamy-looking Moonrise Kingdom (in UK cinemas on 25 May - full review of Moonrise Kingdom will appear on Friday)...
