TRAILER: The Amazing Mr. Fox Trailer #2...
This is a mixed bag project for me.
It's no secret, I didn't really care to much for the first trailer. The voices didn't work at all for me, and really, the visual style didn't look quite polished enough. However, that really has changed after this trailer and the previous behind the scenes featurette. This is Wes Anderson's first animated film, and it utilizes the classic stop motion style of say a Wallace and Gromit. The story is based on a book by Roald Dahl, who also wrote Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and looks to be a welcome change in style, at least a little bit, for the stale film maker. I love everything about this trailer, and it now shoots up near the top of my most anticipated for this year. What do YOU think?
Mr and Mrs Fox (George Clooney and Meryl Streep) live an idyllic home life with their son Ash (Jason Schwartzman) and visiting young nephew Kristopherson (Eric Anderson). But after 12 years, the bucolic existence proves too much for Mr Fox’s wild animal instincts. Soon he slips back into his old ways as a sneaky chicken thief and in doing so, endangers not only his beloved family, but the whole animal community. Trapped underground and with not enough food to go around, the animals band together to fight against the evil Farmers - Boggis, Bunce and Bean - who are determined to capture the audacious, fantastic Mr Fox at any cost. The film also stars Bill Murray, Wally Wolodarsky, Eric Anderson, Michael Gambon, Willem Dafoe, Owen Wilson and Jarvis Cocker.
Go see something good!
