As huge Wes An­der­son fans—where does one be­gin: The Royal Ten­nen­baums, Rush­more, Grand Bu­dapest Ho­tel?—we pos­i­tively can’t wait for the di­rec­tor’s new­est of­fer­ing, a dog-cen­tered stop-mo­tion film called Isle of Dogs. Akin to The Fan­tas­tic Mr. Fox and char­ac­ter­ized by An­der­son’s sig­na­ture whim­si­cal style, Isle of Dogs takes place in a dystopian, fu­tur­is­tic Ja­pan, where an out­break of ca­nine flu leads to all dogs be­ing ban­ished by Ja­panese au­thor­i­ties to an is­land of garbage. As five dogs—voiced by the all-star cast of Ed­ward Nor­ton, Bryan Cranston, Bill Mur­ray, Jeff Gold­blum, and Bob Bal­a­ban—try to ad­just to their new ex­is­tence, they come across a boy named Atari Kobayashi, who has come to the is­land in search of his own dog. De­spite their griev­ances with mankind, the dogs agree to set out on an odyssey to re­unite Atari with his dog Spots, and to pro­tect Atari from gov­ern­ment au­thor­i­ties when they try to keep boy and dog apart. Mark your cal­en­dars: this must-watch movie is in the­atres on March 23rd in the U.S. and April 2018 in­ter­na­tion­ally.
