Moonrise Kingdom in October

Universal Pictures have announced the UK DVD and Blu-ray release of Moonrise Kingdom on 1 October 2012. Wes Anderson directs this coming-of-age comedy which explores young love and adventure. On an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, two twelve-year-olds (Kara Hayward, Jared Gilman) fall in love and make a secret pact to run away together into the wilderness. As a local search party led by the Sheriff (Bruce Willis) and the girl's parents (Bill Murray, Frances McDormand) try to hunt them down, a violent storm is brewing off-shore – and the peaceful island community is turned upside down in more ways than anyone can handle. The cast also includes Ed Norton, Jason Schwartzman and Harvey Keitel.

Extras include:

  • Set Tour with Bill Murray
  • A Look Inside Moonrise Kingdom (Blu-ray only)
  • Welcome to the Island of Penzance (Blu-ray only) - Bob Balaban narrates a series of guided tours from the locations of Moonrise Kingdom featuring Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, and Wes Anderson

Universal are also handling the US release which offers the same extras and arrives a couple of weeks later on 16 October.
