I don’t know about you, but I’ve seen a TON of love in the response to Wes Anderson’s latest effort, Moonrise Kingdom. I’m not a huge devotee of the guy’s work (at least in live-action), but something about this latest film definitely hooked me in from the first trailer, and the buzz in the last week has sealed my excitement.
Since I imagine many of our New York City chewers feel the same way, I’m pleased to announce a special CHUD giveaway that will send you to see the film AND toss some cool items your way. What will you win?
• 2 Run Of Engagement passes to see the film in NYC (they being 6/11)
• 2 Moonrise Kingdom T-shirts to outfit you and your buddy
• A Moonrise Kingdom canteen, so you can keep hydrated on your hike to the theater. Or you can look cool drinking scotch out of it at your next hipster party or whatever- your call.
How do you win?

MOONRISE KINGDOM is the new movie directed by two-time Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Wes Anderson (The Royal Tenenbaums, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Rushmore).
Set on an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, MOONRISE KINGDOM tells the story of two 12-year-olds who fall in love, make a secret pact, and run away together into the wilderness. As various authorities try to hunt them down, a violent storm is brewing off-shore – and the peaceful island community is turned upside down in every which way. Bruce Willis plays the local sheriff, Captain Sharp. Edward Norton is a Khaki Scout troop leader, Scout Master Ward. Bill Murray and Frances McDormand portray the young girl’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Bishop. The cast also includes Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman, and Bob Balaban; and introduces Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward as Sam and Suzy, the boy and girl.
