Wes Anderson is known for a lot of things: An idiosyncratic and detail-oriented style, masterful use of color, nice dress socks, keeping Bill Murray employed… and killing (fictional) dogs. In 2012, following the release of Moonrise Kingdom, a New Yorker piece asked, “Does Wes Anderson Hate Dogs?” Perhaps it’s no coincidence that his latest effort, a stop-motion adventure set in Japan, is called Isle of Dogs. When you say it out loud, it sounds like “I love dogs”; the title itself refutes the notion that Anderson has it out for man’s best friend.
Sorry not sorry about that headline, folks, but a trailer for a new Wes Anderson movie is something to get super-silly-stoked about. For his second stop-motion animated film, the director who’s made a habit of killing dogs in his movies finally gives canines their due. The first trailer for Isle of Dogs has arrived, and I regret to inform you that it’s going to make the wait until next March that much more painful.
It’s been three years since Wes Anderson released The Grand Budapest Hotel, but fans of the director (Fandersons? Is that a thing?) will have to wait a little longer to see his next film. Isle of Dogs doesn’t hit theaters until next spring, but we’ll have the first trailer tomorrow — until then, Fox Searchlight has released a brief teaser to get you ready for Anderson’s new stop-motion animated film.
Food tutorial videos have become an art film in and of themselves, with websites like Tastemade and Buzzfeed Tasty churning out cute, quick, infinitely watchable short videos around a minute long that combine recipes with cooking tutorials — and they all look delicious. They’re such a popular thing that David Ma launched his own YouTube channel this week, where he posts food tutorial videos as if they were made by all of today’s most popular directors.
