Wes Anderson Is Back With New Film ‘Isle of Dogs’

 

Prepare to freak. Wes Anderson is back with a new movie that’s about the only thing better than Wes Anderson: dogs. In Isle of Dogs, the director returns to the stop-motion style he used in The Fantastic Mr. Fox, and goes science fiction, with a story set in a futuristic Japan.

An outbreak of “dog flu” prompts an evacuation of all dogs in Megasaki City to Trash Island, which gets renamed (you guessed it) the Isle of Dogs. The film will follow 12-year-old pilot Atari Kobayashi, the ward of corrupt Mayor Kobayashi, as he flies off to the Isle of Dogs in search of his bodyguard dog, Spots.

As usual, Anderson has brought together a whimsical, wild cast of friends for the new film. Isle of Dogs will star Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Scarlett Johansson, Bryan Cranston, Tilda Swinton, Greta Gerwig, Frances McDormand, Jeff Goldblum, Harvey Keitel, Liev Schreiber, F. Murray Abraham, Courtney B. Vance, Bob Balaban, and (seriously) fucking Yoko Ono.

Isle of Dogs is due March 23rd, 2018 – which means we have plenty of time to binge watch all of our old Wes Anderson favorites leading up to the release
