Asteroid City: How Wes Anderson Built a Small Town for the Movie

Asteroid City: How Wes Anderson Built a Small Town for the Movie

June has a lot of huge blockbusters with films like Transformers and The Flash, but if none of that is to your preference, you can always check out the upcoming movie from modern auteur Wes Anderson called Asteroid City.

Anderson and his team actually built a huge set for the town, and thanks to Kodak, we have an in-depth look at just how everything was put together. Check this out:

Though Wes Anderson’s style has always been apparent with his movies, it looks like his most recent films have been the one to get more and more stylish, with Asteroid City taking place completely in a huge set.

Like any piece of Anderson’s work, the set does look interesting, and with all the symmetry and colors popping, you can bet that the movie is going to provide some much-needed respite from all the big comic book films that have been coming out during the month of June.

Despite the critical praise for The French Dispatch, a lot of fans considered it to be one of the harder Anderson movies to swallow. Hopefully Asteroid City will offer that mass appeal that will bring in a much wider audience.

Here’s the synopsis for the film:

The itinerary of a Junior Stargazer/Space Cadet convention (organized to bring together students and parents from across the country for fellowship and scholarly competition) is spectacularly disrupted by world-changing events.

Asteroid City is set to release in theaters on June 16.
