Shaw in London brings Louis Anderson’s “Asteroid City” to life

In London, movie fans can immerse themselves in the fictional world of director Wes Anderson in the coming weeks. Wes Anderson – Asteroid City Gallery, which just opened in the British capital, showcases the original sets, props, costumes and artwork from Anderson’s star-studded new comedy, Asteroid City, which is now open in Austrian cinemas.

The 54-year-old’s films, including “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” “The French Dispatch,” and “Moonrise Kingdom,” are known for their aesthetics. With bright colors, consistent images, and plenty of detail, the American director has created his own signature style on screen, which is finding more and more imitators on social media.

For “Asteroid City,” an American desert town from the 1950s was recreated in Spain, and most of it was flown to London for the show. Until July 8, visitors can dine at a replica of a typical dinner from the period, sit in a train compartment from the movie or take pictures in a bungalow like Scarlett Johansson’s in a scene, among other things.

“What’s great about the show is that you can really move around in Wes’ world and interact with him and see everything up close,” said co-producer Anderson Ben Adler. “It’s the original pieces that were made specifically for the movie and appear on screen.” Among them is a posable doll of an alien who plays an important role in the movie.

In “Asteroid City,” a group of gifted students, along with their parents, arrive in the fictional desert city of 1955 to participate in an academic competition. But a sudden visit from space changes everything. Wes Anderson has brought many stars in front of the camera for his new movie, including Tom Hanks, Scarlett Johansson, Tilda Swinton, Bryan Cranston, and Edward Norton.
