Wes Anderson's 9th movie is coming soon!! The upcoming movie will see Anderson's return to stop-motion after his adaptation of Fantastic Mr.Fox in 2009 and features an star-studded cast with Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, Jeff Goldblum, F. Murray Abraham, Tilda Swinton, Kunichi Nomura, Bob Balaban, Harvey Keitel, Edward Norton, Bryan Cranston, Liev Schreiber, Ken Watanabe, Scarlett Johansson, Yoko Ono, Greta Gerwig and Courtney B. Vance. For his next feature, Isle of Dogs, Anderson is swapping the foxes for dogs but keeping the story of a boy on his grand adventure, as well as the stop-motion technique that made the furry creatures so endearing.
The movie takes place in Japan, 20 years into the future where a group of quarantined dogs are sent to an island that is completely covered in trash and find it very hard to find food. They feel alone, that is until a 12-year old boy manages to infiltrate the island in the hopes of finding his best friend and the dogs decide to help him out.
Here it is! Watch the long-awaited trailer for The Isle Of Dogs!!
As a Wes Anderson fan, I am very excited for this movie. I loved Fantastic Mr. Fox and and I was very impressed with the stop-motion animation. Isle Of Dogs, without a doubt, looks no different. Movies with dogs and kids always seem to tug at the heartstrings and this one looks no different. My favorite Wes Anderson movies are Moonrise Kingdom and Grand Budapest Hotel. It's actually a tie. But the Isle Of Dogs looks very promising.
The only problem? We have to wait till March 23, 2018 to see Isle Of Dogs in theaters!
