'Moonrise Kingdom': Go Behind The Scenes Of Wes Anderson's New Film

Moonrise Kingdom Bruce Willis

Behold, a Wes Anderson-styled behind-the-scenes featurette from a new Wes Anderson film!

In this exclusive clip from "Moonrise Kingdom," fans get a closer look at tough-guy Bruce Willis in a very non-tough-guy role (a nice local cop named Captain Sharp). Narrated by Bob Balaban, the video shows Willis taking on big actor stuff: Driving! Running! Fake rain! However, that part where he hangs upside-down? That wasn't Bruce. It was -- as Balaban explains -- a stunt double. You can check it all out in the video above.

Set in 1960s New England, "Moonrise Kingdom" tells the story of Sam (Jared Gilman), a young boy who runs away from home with childhood crush Suzy (Kara Hayward). Heading up the rescue effort is Sharp (Willis), Scout Master Ward (Ed Norton), Laura Bishop (Frances McDormand) and her husband, Walt (Bill Murray). The film hits theaters on May 25.

Keep an eye out tomorrow for the second "Moonrise" featurette, debuting over on

Who's In It? Joel Murray, Tara Lynn Barr
What's It About: Bill's younger brother stars as Frank, a terminally ill man who takes his nothing-to-lose scenario and decides to clean up society. Aided by the crazy 16-year-old Roxy, he goes "Taxi Driver" on annoying reality TV debutantes, media loudmouths and people who text in the theater.
Why We're Excited: The movie's director, Bobcat Goldthwait, is the king of the dark comedy. If your only perception of Bobcat is "that '80s comedian with the funny voice," then you're missing out on one of the edgiest comedic directors working today.
