Asteroid City
Asteroid City


From Oscar® nominated Wes Anderson comes a story set in a fictional American desert town circa 1955. 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. This film will premiere at the 76th Cannes Film Festival this month, where it will compete for the Palme d'Or.

Main Trailer


  • "This is a movie for the Wes-heads, and Jeff Goldblum’s role alone makes it worth watching."
    - Vox
  • "It’s a very good thing for fans of the filmmaker, who adore Anderson’s idiosyncratic storytelling, quirky casting and obsessive production design."
    - Toronto Star
  • "Wes Anderson’s ’50s quarantine tale plays like the American auteur’s whimsical, surrealist answer to The Twilight Zone relocated to the dusty desert of the old West."
    - Time Out
  • "Wes Anderson returns with one of his most dazzling, rich and playfully self-reflexive films to date, brought to eye-popping life by an all-timer ensemble."
    - Little White Lies
  • " Asteroid City’s eccentricity, its elegance, its gaiety, and its sheer profusion of detail within the tableau frame make it such a pleasure. So, too, does its dapper styling of classic American pop culture"
    - Guardian
  • "In its own offbeat way, ASTEROID CITY is an Anderson patchwork of Cold War paranoia and American family values in all their often hypocritical glory. It is every bit as arch as his best work, while still managing to tug hard on the heartstrings."
    - Independent (UK)
  • "ASTEROID CITY has all of the ticks that make Anderson Anderson: The slow pans, the deliberate framing, the erudite dialogue, and a narrator to boot. It’s also his best film since 2014’s The Grand Budapest Hotel."
    - The Daily Beast
  • "There has always been a method to Wes Anderson’s madness, but ASTEROID CITY reminds you that there is also a madness to his method. And that, ultimately, is what makes him a great artist."
    - New York Magazine/Vulture
