In case you haven't heard of it yet, Asteroid City is the next aesthetically pleasing, quirky film from filmmaker Wes Anderson — best known for The Grand Budapest Hotel, Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, and a bunch of other cute and charming films.
And if you don't spend a million minutes a day on TikTok like ~some of us~ do, you should know there's been a popular Wes Anderson trend circulating on the app for over a month.
The trend basically has people romanticizing simple, everyday life by emulating Wes Anderson's film style in their TikTok videos — i.e., making shots symmetrical, using specific color palettes, and, of course, setting it all to a song from Anderson's last film, The French Dispatch.
And in a very meta move, the cast of Anderson's Asteroid City recently collaborated with popular TikToker Reece Feldman (@guywithamoviecamera) to jump on the trend. Check it out:
The video opens with, of course, the trend's opening joke line:
Then we get a shot of Scarlett Johansson simply putting on some headphones.
Rupert Friend leans into Maya Hawke for a quirky whisper we are not privy to.
Bryan Cranston makes a serious appearance in a very nice-looking chair.
Then Jason Schwartzman, Scarlett Johansson, and Jake Ryan time their looks to camera perfectly with the soundtrack.
Steve Park simply pours a glass of water for Jeffrey Wright.
And finally, we get this funny overhead shot of a plant that Jake Ryan holds.
And there you have it. Simple, to the point, and very meta. If you wanna see the REAL Wes Anderson aesthetic, Asteroid City hits select theaters on June 16 and opens everywhere on June 23. Check out the official trailer here:
