“‘Asteroid City’ takes place in a fictional American desert town circa 1955,” the official description reads. “The itinerary of a Junior Stargazer/Space Cadet convention (organized to bring together students and parents from across the country for fellowship and scholarly competition) is spectacularly disrupted by world-changing events.”
The trailer shows off Anderson’s signature visual style, mixed with classic westerns and old sci-fi movies, plus his trademark deadpan sense of humour.
