Wes Anderson is back in the stop-motion animated world, with his own homespun yet meticulous style.
While it focuses on animals like his previous effort Fantastic Mr. Fox did, Isle of Dogs is an Asian set adventure of a very different sort. It’s about a Japanese boy’s search for his dog after all canines have been banished to a single island. There, he meets a pack of Alpha dogs led by Rex, voiced by Edward Norton.
He leads an all-star voice cast that includes Bryan Cranston, Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, Scarlett Johansson, F. Murray Abraham, Tilda Swinton, Kunichi Nomura, Harvey Keitel, Akira Ito, Akira Takayama, Koyu Rankin, Yoko Ono, Courtney B. Vance, Greta Gerwig, Frances McDormand, Bob Balaban, and Live Schrieber.
Isle of Dogs opens in theaters next spring on March 23, 2018.
