Here’s The Trailer For Wes Anderson’s “Asteroid City” Featuring Twee Pastels Galore And A Silver Fox Tom Hanks

March 29, 2023 / Posted by:

If you’ve got a SAG card in your wallet right now, then congratulations on the release of the trailer for your upcoming movie Asteroid City! I mean, it seems like every working actor in Hollywood has been crammed into Wes Anderson’s latest cinematic twee overload. Actually, let me correct myself. It seems like every working actor in Hollywood is in this except for Wes Anderson’s longtime muse Bill Murray. Along with Bottle Rocket, Asteroid City is the second Wes Anderson movie that Bill is not in. Bill was originally cast but dropped out before filming, and it had nothing to do with him being accused of sexual harassment on the set of Aziz Ansari’s movie (Aziz’s movie started filming nearly a year after Asteroid City finished filming.) Bill had to quit that twee bitch after he caught COVID-19, and it looks like he was replaced with one of the first famous types to catch COVID , Tom Hanks, who is giving you silver retro daddy in Asteroid City. I have a feeling that Tom Hanks has been an undercover silver fox for many years and was dyeing his hair. I’m sure his mop instantly turned totally grey the first time he Googled his son Chet Haze.

Asteroid City will premiere at Cannes next month before it’s released in theaters on June 16. It takes place during 1955 in a fictional American desert town where strange occurrences, including alien foolery, are going down. The Verge explains it like this:

Set in a fictional American town during the mid-1950s, Asteroid City tells the story of a beleaguered widower (Jason Schwartzman) who’s busy schlepping his four children across the country to see their grandfather (Tom Hanks) when their car suddenly breaks down. Inconvenienced as everyone is by having to stop in Asteroid City while their car is fixed, the fact that an annual junior stargazer competition is on delights the widower’s son Woodrow (Jake Ryan), and the trailer spotlights how the family’s going to be sucked into the goings-on of the town.

There’s the stargazing competition, sure. But there are also strange earthquakes that no one knows the true cause of, fears about whether aliens might be lurking among the humans living in Asteroid City, and multiple sightings of a celebrity (Scarlett Johansson) — all of which seem to be keeping Asteroid City’s characters in a constant state of excitement.

Besides Silver Fox Tom, Jason Schwartzman, Jake Ryan, and ScarJo, Asteroid City also stars (excuse me while I stretch my typin’ fingers and deep throat a protein bar) Jeffrey Wright, Tilda Swinton, Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, Liev Schreiber, Rupert Friend, Adrien Brody, Fisher Stevens, Margot Robbie, Maya Hawke, Hope Davis, Stephen Park, Steve Carrell, Willem Dafoe, Matt Dillon, Hong Chau, Tony Revolori, Sophia Lillis, and Jeff Goldblum. It makes sense why so many actors do Wes Anderson movies. You get to put on a twee costume and stand around on a twee set while saying lines with the enthusiasm of a DMV agent.

Here’s the trailer, which had me asking, “When did Jason Schwartzman get THAT hot?!”

This trailer further proves that with every new Wes Anderson movie Wes Anderson gets even more Wes Anderson-ey. Tumblr and Pinterest, this is your crack.
