TRAILER: Fantastic Mr. Fox...

I really just don't know. Those were the first words to come out of my mouth after finishing my viewing of the first trailer from the upcoming Wes Anderson/Fox Searchlight adaptation of The Fantastic Mr. Fox. Yes, it LOOKS amazing, with creepy 60's animation style and of course Anderson's pantented, if now almost laughably cliche, blocked and squared off frame. Yes, the SOUNDTRACK will be amazing, of course, but still, I have a feeling of worry. Hearing Clooney's voice come out of the lead is a bit jarring, and even Meryl Streep seems to be a bit miscast. Also, as /Film so greatly pointed out, the films composition is almost that of a side scrolling video game. However, it IS just a trailer, so we will just have to wait and see. That all said, I really do like the look and feel of the film, and heres to hoping the rest will follow.

What do YOU think?

Fantastic Mr. Fox is based on the book of the same name by Roald Dahl and features the voice work of George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Jason Schwartzman, Bill Murray and others. It opens on November 13.

Go see something good!
