‘Isle of Dogs’ Teaser Offers a Stop-Motion Sneak Peek at Wes Anderson’s Latest
As you can see, the teaser doesn’t reveal much — it’s just a guy, presumably in Japan (where the film is set), pasting up posters for Isle of Dogs. The meta teaser does give us a sense of the film’s stop-motion animation style, which looks a little different than Anderson’s previous animated effort, Fantastic Mr. Fox.
Isle of Dogs centers on a boy’s odyssey to find his missing dog, and features a predictably awesome voice cast headlined by Edward Norton as a dog named Rex. The film also stars Anderson vets Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, F. Murray Abraham, Tilda Swinton, Harvey Keitel, Frances McDormand and Bob Balaban, along with newbies Bryan Cranston, Scarlett Johansson, Greta Gerwig, Kunichi Nomura, Akira Ito, Akira Takayama, Koyu Rankin, Yoko Ono (!), Courtney B. Vance, and Liev Schreiber.
The first trailer will arrive sometime tomorrow. Isle of Dogs hits theaters on March 23, 2018.
