If you're a die-hard Wes Anderson fan, his newest film, "The Midnight Coterie of Sinister," is a must - or so the writers at SNL would have you believe.
This weekend, in the spirit of Anderson's newest film, "Saturday Night Live" guest host, Edward Norton (who also co-starred in Anderson's latest film, "Moonrise Kingdom") hit the nail on the head when he played Owen Wilson in the spoof trailer "The Midnight Coterie of Sinister Intruders."
In the trailer, Wilson must protect his wife, Gwyneth Paltrow (expertly impersonated by new cast member Noel Wells), and his young children from murderers, who are asking, (yes asking) to invade his home and kill his family. These so-called sinister intruders include twins in matching tennis outfits, a guy with a meat cleaver and record player, a man with a falcon...and Danny Glover. Natch. Let's not forget Anderson's signature pastel color palette and block text title cards. How very twee.
Let's just hope that a panic room and a sling shot, all that our endearing protagonists have on hand, of course, are enough to protect the Wilsons. The spoof also contains references from other movies directed by Anderson which include "The Royal Tenenbaums," "The Fantastic Mr. Fox," "Moonrise Kingdom" and "Rushmore."
Anderson's newest movie, "The Grand Budapest Hotel," is scheduled to hit theaters this March.
