MEET THE MUTTS FROM WES AN­DER­SON’S LAT­EST, A CANINEHEAVY STOP-MO­TION AD­VEN­TURE, VIA EX­CLU­SIVE EX­CERPTS FROM AN­DER­SON’S SCREEN­PLAY DUKE (JEFF GOLD­BLUM)

“A bo­hemian moun­tain-dog. Slen­der face, sleek ears, and a bal­let-dancer’s overly nim­ble gait. He has seven miss­ing teeth and a con­sump­tive dry-cough. He is Duke.”

CHIEF (BRYAN CRANSTON)

“A coal-black hound with long legs, black nose, a boxer’s jaw, and floppy, black ears with white spots all over them. He has the sturdy frame of a mid­dle-weight, but the starved mass of a long-dis­tance run­ner. He is Chief.”

REX (ED­WARD NOR­TON)

“A wiry, wire-haired mutt with spiky, mot­tled coat and the eyes of an Arc­tic sled-dog. His ribs stick out like a cast-iron ra­di­a­tor. He is Rex.”

BOSS (BILL MURRAY)

“A stout, liver-spot­ted mutt with black paws and a tail like a stubbed-out cigar. He wears a soiled, grimy, un­rav­el­ling, striped, woollen dog-sweater with em­broi­dered base­balls and the word ‘Drag­ons’ scrolled across it in cur­sive. He is Boss.”

KING (BOB BALABAN)

“A grace­ful, red-haired mutt with a sable snout and a han­dle­bar mous­tache. He is dap­pled with scabs, scars, scuffs, and scratches. He is King.”
