'Isle of Dogs': First Trailer Released for Wes Anderson's Sci-Fi Pupfest


Almost a decade after making his first foray into animation with "The Fantastic Mr. Fox", the writer-director Wes Anderson returns to the stop-motion technique and focuses on another type of animal in "Isle of Dogs". The filmmaker recruited an all-star cast of old and new Anderson staples to voice the characters, including Bryan Cranston, Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, Scarlett Johansson, Yoko Ono, Tilda Swinton, Edward Norton and many more. The good news: We have a decent amount of film from Anderson's oeuvre to keep us busy until then. It's great to see Anderson using the stop-motion animation medium in such a different way, with such a different story, and his signature sense of humor and camera movement remains delightfully intact. A young boy pilot named Atari Kobayashi flies to the island to find his sequestered dog, while the evil Mayor Kobayashi tries to stop him.

Featuring numerous familiar actors we've become accustomed to when watching an Anderson film, the animated story is one of turmoil and political deceit... oh, and dogs.

Set in Japan, Isle of Dogs follows a boy's odyssey in search of his dog, Rex.
