The first clip of Wes Anderson’s much-anticipated stop-motion film Isle of Dogs has been released. Posted on Vulture’s Twitter account, the minute-and-a-half clip provides a glimpse into what will be the director’s first feature-length film since The Grand Budapest Hotel in 2014.
Opening with a mysterious sack being dumped on the island inhabited entirely by dogs, the clip humorously introduces canine characters Chief, Rex, Boss, Duke and King. The local dogs then proceed to scrap with a rival “gang” over the contents of the sack – a mound of mouldy scraps including “two banana peels, a mouldy rice cake, some sardine bones, a pile of broken egg shells and rotten gizzard with maggots all over it.”
Due to be released on 23 March in US cinemas (and April internationally), the film is the director’s second stop-motion feature-length and, in true Anderson fashion, boasts an impressive cast. Alongside Edward Norton who voices Rex, Isle of Dogs features Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton, Yoko Ono, Greta Gerwig and many others.
