Watch Trailer

"Asteroid City is an absolute delight, Anderson’s best since The Grand Budapest Hotel."

— Luke Hicks, The Film Stage

"This is a movie for the Wes-heads, and Jeff Goldblum’s role alone makes it worth watching."

— Alissa Wilkinson, Vox

"Asteroid City—like the rumbling reverberations of those atomic explosions—quivers with disquietude throughout."

— Josh Larsen, LarsenOnFilm

"Anderson’s new movie is the most ingeniously conceived and seamlessly executed of his anthology/nesting multi-narratives."

— Glenn Kenny,

"The audacity and beauty of Asteroid City lie in the way it connects the mysteries of the human heart to the secrets of science and the universe."

— Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine (Vulture)

"Wes Anderson returns with one of his most dazzling, rich and playfully self-reflexive films to date, brought to eye-popping life by an all-timer ensemble."

— David Jenkins, Little White Lies

"Wes Anderson’s ’50s quarantine tale plays like the American auteur’s whimsical, surrealist answer to The Twilight Zone relocated to the dusty desert of the old West."

— Philip De Semlyen, Time Out

"It pairs his inimitable visual elegance with an impassioned argument about the power of storytelling. And it’s a reminder that Anderson remains one of cinema’s best."

— David Sims, The Atlantic

"Johansson and Schwartzman give two stellar performances within a galaxy of gripping ensemble work that treads the line between pastiche and pathos with ease."

— Maureen Lee Lenker, Entertainment Weekly

"Delightful, occasionally quite moving and always exquisitely crafted, this is a modest charmer about trying to make sense of the world either through art or other pursuits."

— Tim Grierson, Screen Daily

"Asteroid City’s eccentricity, its elegance, its gaiety, and its sheer profusion of detail within the tableau frame make it such a pleasure. So, too, does its dapper styling of classic American pop culture."

— Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

"It’s juicily ambitious stuff: imagine the familial tensions of The Royal Tenenbaums and The Darjeeling Limited mapped onto an entire nation, but also playing out in multiple close-up vignettes."

— Robbie Collin, The Telegraph

"It’s enjoyable on the surface level, but it’s also a layered existential poem. It’s Wes Anderson at his most mature and magical — and at his most singular, in a way no one else can capture — especially not AI."

— Isaac Feldberg, Polygon

"Asteroid City is one of the best movies Wes Anderson has made. It's deceptively hilarious, and includes all the visual flair one would expect from this veteran auteur director and such a large cast of renowned actors."

— Jordan Hoffman, IGN

"In its own offbeat way, Asteroid City is an Anderson patchwork of Cold War paranoia and American family values in all their often hypocritical glory. It is every bit as arch as his best work, while still managing to tug hard on the heartstrings."

— Geoffrey Macnab, Independent (UK)

"A film that sneaks up on you -- that fools you into thinking it’s just a scattershot collection of discrete little details and gags... But the deeper this movie disappears into itself, the more its play-like rhythms begin to create their own rhymes."

— David Ehrlich, IndieWire

"In Asteroid City, Anderson builds several worlds mediated by layers of performance, artifice, and technology, in which nonetheless real humans grieve, long for one another, fall in love, get hurt, and feel wonder. The layers they’ve put between themselves and their emotions crack and crumble."

— Alissa Wilkinso, Vox

"Asteroid City, his latest collaboration with cinematographer Robert Yeoman, may be the most incandescently beautiful of all their movies so far. Additionally, its emotional impact is substantial. Imagine a gorgeous butterfly landing on your heart and then squeezing on that heart with sharp pincers you never knew it had."

— Glenn Kenny,
