'Isle of Dogs': First Trailer Released for Wes Anderson's Sci-Fi Pupfest
A future dystopia where a group of dogs, exiled to an island made of trash, complain about the lack of variety in their diet while a plucky young boy risks everything for the love of his pooch could only be science fiction as seen through the eyes of Wes Anderson. Welcome to Isle of Dogs.
Anderson's latest movie, which takes place 20 years in the future, is his second stop-motion feature and brings together a voice cast that includes a number of Anderson regulars, such as Edward Norton, Tilda Swinton, Jeff Goldblum and Bill Murray, alongside Bryan Cranston, Ken Watanabe and Yoko Ono. Newcomer Koyu Rankin voices Atari, the 12-year-old who defies his father's wishes to go see his dog, Spots (Liev Schreiber).
The movie, from Fox Searchlight and Indian Paintbrush, will be produced by Anderson in association with his Grand Budapest Hotel production team: Scott Rudin, Steven Rales and Jeremy Dawson. It'll bound into theaters March 23, 2018.
