Watch The New Trailer For Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs

Fox Searchlight Pictures has released the new trailer for Wes Anderson’s stop-motion feature, Isle of Dogs, opening in theaters on March 23, 2018. 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 the Isle of Dogs movie 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.

“Wes Anderson is one of the most talented filmmakers of his, or any other, generation,” said Fox Searchlight Pictures Presidents Nancy Utley and Steve Gilula when the Isle of Dogs movie was first announced. “His ability to write smart and unconventional screenplays and then translate them into unique experiences on screen makes him not only a unique voice in film, but one who can truly bridge the gap between independent films and cross-over hits. We are thrilled to be going on a journey into the newest world from the distinctive imagination of Wes Anderson.”

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.
