Wearing pants that only a character like Bill Murry could get away with, the comic genius himself takes to video to give us a hosted trailer tour of Wes Anderson's upcoming summer hit "Moonrise Kingdom."

In the video, Murray gives a quick review of where the movie was filmed and a history of his relationship with Anderson and some of the filmmakers past films. He then goes on a rundown of the various actors in the film along with a few character details for each. In true Murray fashion, the clip is crotchety, yet totally hilarious.

The quirky comedy, which is set on an island off the coast of New England in 1965, features Murray in a parental role to go along with an All-Star ensemble that includes Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, Jared Gilman, Kara Hayward, an Anderson favorite in Jason Schwartzman, Bruce Willis, Edward Norton and Harvey Kitel.

A synopsis that accompanied the Murray featurrete for Moonrise Kingdom, which debuts in select theatres on May 25th, read:

MOONRISE KINGDOM tells the story of two twelve-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 more ways than anyone can handle.
