Asteroid City

Wes Anderson’s newest film, Asteroid City (2024), has landed! It whisks us away to a 1950s desert town buzzing with rumors of a UFO sighting. The film features his signature style: meticulously framed shots, pastel palettes, and an eccentric cast. But does it recapture the magic of his earlier works?
The answer depends on your tolerance for Anderson’s aesthetic. Fans will delight in the visually stunning sets and sharp, witty dialogue. Newcomers might find the deliberate pacing and quirky characters a bit much.
The plot is a reportedly interwoven tapestry of stories, following journalists, scientists, and locals tangled in the UFO mystery. Early reviews suggest it lacks a central focus, which could leave some viewers wanting more.
The cast is a Wes Anderson who’s who, including familiar faces like Edward Norton, Bill Murray, and Tilda Swinton. New additions like Margot Robbie and Tom Hanks spark curiosity, but their roles remain under wraps.
