Fan-fucking-tastic


Finally, the preview for the super-anticipated new installment of classic Wes Anderson (Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, the Royal Tenenbaums, the Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, and the Hotel Chevalier and the Darjeeling Limited series) cinema has reached the internet - and I'm sure I'm a few days behind. So 'the Fantastic Mr. Fox' is a children's novel (by the equally fantastic Roald Dahl) turned stop-animation film, which tells the story of a mischievous fox (played by George Clooney) puts together a team of furry friends (played by an assortment of great actors including Bill Murry, Anjelica Huston, Jason Schwartzman, Owen Wilson, Willem Dafoe, et. al.) to stop a team of farmers who are intent on stopping Mr. Fox. Trust me, my writing is much more confusing than the actually plot of the movie.
Other contributed voices include: Wes Anderson himself, Meryl Streep, Andrien Brody, Roman Coppola, Brian Cox, and Michael Gambon)

Anyways, here's the preview:



And here's to nostalgia:
