"I've got a little bit of rum in me now... Sailor Jerry. It's a spiced rum."
And I thought Bill Murray couldn't get any more awesome after seeing his Cannes patchwork suit. Well, it turns out he can with this drunken tour of the Moonrise Kingdom set. He should give guided tours of all movie sets.
The wonderful thing is that him drunk in this video is almost exactly the same as him acting in the film. You can't tell the difference. Amazing. And good news for fans of his Cannes festival fashion: he even explains how his patchwork suit was made.
Moonrise Kingdom is out in UK cinemas on Friday and it's absolutely lovely. Head this way to read a Moonrise Kingdom film review.
This Poster of the Week was easy - and at the same time insanely difficult. On the one hand, the best posters I've seen on the internet are these superb Moonrise Kingdom alternative posters (yes, better than the Dark Knight Rises ones). On the other hand, it's impossible to choose between them because they're all so flipping lovely.
So here are the top four posters of the week:
Read on for the rest - the full collection is over at Shortlist, with designs from Brandon Schaefer, Ben Whitesell, Matt Needle, Ibraheem Youssef and Fran Asensio.

"Dear Sam. Where?" "Dear Suzy. When?"
That's how Sam and Suzy arrange to run away together. By hand-written letters from opposite sides of a remote island.
He, a bullied Khaki Scout who sets fires to things while sleepwalking; she, a troubled child with violent tendencies and a lot of eyeshadow. Alienated by uncomprehending families and friends, they plan to survive on their own in the woods.
Fortunately, they’re well equipped. Sam has his Scout skills. Suzy has binoculars. Plus they have a torch, a toothbrush, a Davey Crocket hat, a frying pan, an air gun, a suitcase full of books - and Benjamin Britten’s Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra.
On a scale of 1 to Not in Cannes, I'm still firmly up at the Not in Cannes end of the spectrum. But that didn't stop me from seeing Wes Anderson's latest film in London last night anyway.
Conclusion? I loved it. Partly because Moonrise Kingdom sounds like the best Super Mario level ever:
I'll have a full review for you next week, when I'm not so busy not being in Cannes.
It's that time of year again. The time when folks in the UK who can't afford to go to France for two weeks suffer Cannes Envy.
Not me. I'm happy here being stuck in England in an East London office with sporadic sunshine, a croissant and a mug with cats on it. (Seriously, it's an awesome mug.)
But every now and then, bits of Cannes gossip gets across the Channel that even us mugged-up croissant chompers need to hear about. So here, to provide you with unrivalled, in-depth coverage of the film industry's biggest festival from someone who isn't even in the same country, is my 2012 Cannes Diary.
Not in Cannes.
Director: Wes Anderson
Cast: Bruce Willis, Ed Norton, Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman
UK release date: Friday 25th May
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.
The Moonrise Kingdom trailer is mighty cute. But, of course, that's what you'd expect from Wes Anderson.
His blend of whimsy, wit and Bill Murray applies itself to what looks like an adorable tale of pubescent romance. Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward are Sam and Suzy, two kids who fall in love and head off for an adventure. Only for mummy Frances MacDormand and daddy Bill Murray to go into panic mode and call up the local cop - played by Bruce Willis.
Yes, a sentence that I never thought I'd say: Bruce Willis is in a Wes Anderson film. You'll also find Tilda Swinton and Ed Norton hopping on board. But before you think that's awesome, get a load of Jason Schwartzman.
Moonrise Kingdom is out in America in May - hopefully the UK will have it by the end of the year. Until then, read on for the trailer.
