Love yourself some retrofuturism in a sleeker package than what the Jetsons have to offer?
Then take a look at Wes Anderson’s new movie, Asteroid City, for a delightful vision of what people of the past thought the future would be like.
As with all Wes Anderson movies, Asteroid City has a stellar cast, to say the least. To name just a few actors in Asteroid City, you have Tom Hanks, Bryan Cranston, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Steve Carell, Jeff Goldblum, Scarlett Johanson and Margot Robbie. There’s also Jason Schwartzmann, a regular in Wes Anderson movies, as well as Edward Norton, who, after also appearing in Knives Out: Glass Onion, seems to be finally making a comeback.
“The itinerary of a Junior Stargazer convention is spectacularly disrupted by world-changing events,” is the official tagline. What that means is that you should expect a retro futuristic movie about Americans dealing with an alien encounter – in the colorful Wes Anderson style.
