Scarlett Johansson, Tom Hanks and Jason Schwartzman will experience the arrival of the aliens in “Asteroid City”, the new film by the acclaimed American director Wes Anderson and which was shot in Spain.

The film set in 1955, and located in a fictitious city, will follow the Junior Stargazer/Space Cadet convention, a school contest dedicated to the observation of astronomical phenomena that will be altered by events that “will change the world.”

In the trailer, Johansson appears as a glamorous movie actress, Hanks as a grandfather worried about his grandchildren, and Schwartzman as a widowed father.

“What’s out there? The meaning of life, if it exists.” says the character of Jake Ryan, who had already worked with the filmmaker on the film “Moonrise Kingdom” (2012), after looking through a telescope.

Continuing with his own stamp, Anderson prioritizes the symmetry of the shots, establishes a specific color palette, this time in pastel tones, and once again presents extravagant characters with little gestures and dysfunctional families.

He also returns to work with the great stars of his cinema such as Schwartzman himself, Adrien Brody, Tilda Swinton, Bryan Cranston, Willem Dafoe or Jeff Goldblum, although not all of them appear in this first preview.

Actors making their debut alongside Anderson include Hanks, the comedian Steve Carellthe Australian Margot Robbie, and the filmmaker and actor Matt Dillon, to name a few.

And this time Bill Murray was conspicuous by his absence. The actor, who had been part of all Anderson’s films since “Rushmore” (1998), left the project in which he was contemplated after having been infected with coronavirus during filming and Carell entered his place.

The tape was recorded in Chinchón, a small Spanish town located about 60 kilometers southeast of Madrid, but the plot has no relation to Spain.

The story was written by Anderson and Roman Coppola, producer of “The Darjeeling Limited” (2007) and co-writer of “Moonrise Kingdom”, and is expected to hit US theaters in the summer of this year.
