A Wes Anderson exhibition is arriving on our doorstep this June in anticipation of the release of his new movie, Asteroid City.


Taking place at The Strand in London, the exhibition will feature props, sets, costumes, artwork and more from the upcoming film, lasting throughout June and July.

The exhibition is also set to be an immersive experience, with Anderson’s trademark formalism coming through in a number of visual and sound installations. Plus, visitors will have the chance to eat in the film's '50s diner set, The Luncheonette.

It will open on 17th June, with Asteroid City coming out in cinemas a week later, on 23rd June.

This will be Anderson’s 11th feature film and his first foray into the world of sci-fi. The plot centres around an unnamed American desert town in the '50s where a Junior Stargazer/Space Cadet convention is taking place.

It stars Jason Schwartzman, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Hanks and many, many more. And, if Grand Budapest Hotel or The French Dispatch is anything to go on, a whirlwind of colour, sound and chaos is likely to ensue.
