The first trailer for Wes Anderson’s next stop-motion project, Isle of Dogs, has been released, and it’s patented Anderson: quirky one-liners, symmetrical framing, and a voice cast that’s a who’s who of A-list Hollywood.
In the movie, an overpopulation of dogs in Japan leads to the rise of disease. So, the mayor of Megasaki City exiles all canines to an island called Trash Island, including a dog named Spots, whom a young boy named Atari goes in search for. It’s a classic tale about a boy and his dog, done Wes Anderson style.
Once Atari gets to the island, he meets a pack of “scary, indestructible alpha” dogs, voiced by everyone from Edward Norton to Bryan Cranston. Hijinks ensue, followed by haunting rock music and robot dogs with evil yellow eyes. Everything you’d expect from a stop-motion film about an island filled with forgotten pets.
No doubt you’re familiar with Anderson’s work by now; he’s directed everything from The Royal Tenenbaums to The Grand Budapest Hotel. But few know that he also directed 2009’s Fantastic Mr. Fox, which is one of his more underrated projects. The film was based on Roald Dahl’s classic of the same name, and featured a take on stop-motion that’s less fluid than projects like Kubo and the Two Strings, giving it a distinct style.
Isle of Dogs is a culmination of everything Anderson has done until this point, channeling the imagination of a child into an animated project that looks charming, moving, and a lot of fun. Either you’re a fan of Anderson or you aren’t—there really is no in-between.
Isle of Dogs comes out on March 23, 2018.
