Wes Anderson's "Isle of Dogs" to open 68th Berlinale on 2/15/18



It was announced today that Wes Anderson's upcoming anaimated feature "Isle of Dogs" will debut at the 68th edition of the Berlin film fest. 

Of all the great Wes Anderson movies, and there quite a few, I've always a real fondness for "The Fantastic Mr. Fox," a stop-motion animation treat from 2009 that was the most formally realized picture of his career. So it is with great joy that I see  that there's another film of his that will be in stop motion animation form. If that wasn't enough he has amassed another fantastic cast to take part in this adventure.


Earlier this year, Anderson had mentioned that the film was “less influenced by stop-motion movies than it is by Akira Kurosawa.”


The full cast includes Bryan Cranston, Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, Scarlett Johansson, F. Murray Abraham, Edward Norton, Tilda Swinton, Kunichi Nomura, Harvey Keitel, Akira Ito, Akira Takayama, Koyu Rankin, Yoko Ono (!), Courtney B. Vance (!), Greta Gerwig (!!!), Frances McDormand, Bob Balaban and Liev Schreiber


"Isle of Dogs" comes out on April 20th, 2018. Is it a coincidence that this is coming out on 4/20?
