The first trailer for Wes Anderson's Asteroid City is now online, and it might be the most Wes Anderson thing that ever Wes Andersoned.
This latest film from the celebrated director, who has previously helmed the likes of Fantastic Mr. Fox, Moonrise Kingdom and Isle of Dogs, is set in the 1950s in a fictional American desert town. At a Junior Stargazer/Space Cadet convention, which is designed to unite students and parents in scholarly competition, chaos ensues as world-changing events take place.
And yes, it looks like aliens are going to show up at some point.
