Movie Watch: Bill Murray & Owen Wilson Lead Life Aquatic
THE LIFE AQUATIC WITH STEVE ZISSOU: Internationally famous oceanographer Steve Zissou (Bill Murray) and his crew -- Team Zissou -- set sail on an expedition to hunt down the mysterious, elusive, possibly non-existent Jaguar Shark that killed Zissou's partner during the documentary filming of their latest adventure. They are joined on their voyage by a young airline co-pilot who may or may not be Zissou's son (Owen Wilson), a beautiful journalist (Cate Blanchett) assigned to write a profile of Zissou, and Zissou's estranged wife and co-producer, Eleanor (Anjelica Huston).
They face overwhelming complications including pirates, kidnapping, and bankruptcy.
Oscar-nominated writer/director Wes Anderson ("Rushmore," "The Royal Tenenbaums") has assembled an all-star cast that also includes Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Michael Gambon, Noah Taylor, and Bud Cort in this wildly original adventure-comedy.
