Exclusive photos from Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs
Fox Searchlight Pictures has provided ComingSoon.net with eight new exclusive photos from Wes Anderson’s stop-motion feature Isle of Dogs, opening in theaters on March 23. Isle of Dogs marks director Anderson’s second animated film, following the Academy Award-nominated Fantastic Mr. Fox in 2009.
Isle of Dogs tells the story of Atari Kobayashi, 12-year-old ward to corrupt Mayor Kobayashi. When, by Executive Decree, all the canine pets of Megasaki City are exiled to a vast garbage-dump called Trash Island, Atari sets off alone in a miniature Junior-Turbo Prop and flies across the river in search of his bodyguard-dog, Spots. There, with the assistance of a pack of newly-found mongrel friends, he begins an epic journey that will decide the fate and future of the entire Prefecture.
Produced by Indian Paintbrush, the voice cast for Isle of Dogs includes F. Murray Abraham, Bob Balaban, Bud Cort, Bryan Cranston, Greta Gerwig, Jeff Goldblum, Akira Ito, Scarlett Johansson, Harvey Keitel, Bill Murray, Kunichi Nomura, Edward Norton, Yoko Ono, Koyu Rankin, Liev Schreiber, Tilda Swinton, Akira Takayama and Frank Wood.
Building upon the successful collaboration on The Grand Budapest Hotel, Anderson, Scott Rudin, Steven Rales and Jeremy Dawson return as producers, while Fox Searchlight Pictures will distribute the film in partnership with Indian Paintbrush.
