We can’t be more excited to see Wes Anderson’s new feature, Isle of Dogs, starring Adrien Brody and scheduled to be in theaters on March 23, 2018. Fox Searchlight released the official trailer today and it looks more visually stunning than what we could have imagined when we heard about the project. If you enjoy Wes Anderson’s work, dogs, animation, the brilliance of Brody or the whimsical and sometimes haunting soundtracks of Andersen’s films, you will probably want to check this one out. I’m praying Bill Murray shows up as one of the dogs.
ISLE OF DOGS tells the story of ATARI KOBAYASHI, 12-year-old ward to corrupt Mayor Kobayashi. When, by Executive Decree, all the canine pets of Megasaki City are exiled to a vast garbage-dump called Trash Island, Atari sets off alone in a miniature Junior-Turbo Prop and flies across the river in search of his bodyguard-dog, Spots. There, with the assistance of a pack of newly-found mongrel friends, he begins an epic journey that will decide the fate and future of the entire Prefecture.
