"Somebody is up to something…" Fox Searchlight has revealed the first official trailer for Wes Anderson’s latest film, a stop-motion adventure titled Isle of Dogs. Set in Japan, the story follows a boy’s odyssey in search of his dog. That’s about all we know, since this is our first official glimpse at footage from the film (aside from the very brief announcement last year). Isle of Dogs features the voice of Edward Norton as Rex, along with a huge ensemble voice cast: Bill Murray, Scarlett Johansson, Bryan Cranston, Liev Schreiber, Tilda Swinton, Greta Gerwig, Frances McDormand, Jeff Goldblum, Harvey Keitel, Kara Hayward, Fisher Stevens, F. Murray Abraham, Courtney B. Vance, Bob Balaban, and Yoko Ono. I completely adore Anderson’s Fantastic Mr. Fox, and I’m crazy excited to see Anderson make another stop-motion movie about dogs next (since I also love dogs). I have a feeling I’m going to adore this.
Here’s the first official trailer (+ poster) for Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs, direct from FSL’s YouTube:
