I recently went to the theaters to check out Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time, and while I do love watching trailers, it is pretty hard to sit through some of the stuff tossed in front of kid’s films. The main contender for “hard-to-watch” was the trailer for Sherlock Gnomes, a film that resorted to low-brow humor quicker than any other I’ve seen in recent memory, but the real clincher was its juxtaposition to the trailer that followed it.
On the heels of Sherlock Gnomes played the trailer for Isle of Dogs, and while I’d already seen that one nearly half a dozen times, my appreciation for Wes Anderson’s dry, intelligent humor was all the more prevalent, and I couldn’t wait for this damn movie to come out. While we still have another week-and-a-half until it does, Fox Searchlight has my back, and released a wonderful “cast” video for the movie.
Over the course of over five minutes, we get little confessional scenes with all the leading dogs, who are supposedly “playing” their characters in the film. It has the same textbook Wes Anderson dry wit, and has me all the more excited to check out the flick.
Below is the synopsis for Isle of Dogs:
“ISLE OF DOGS tells the story of ATARI KOBAYASHI, 12-year-old ward to corrupt Mayor Kobayashi. When, by Executive Decree, all the canine pets of Megasaki City are exiled to a vast garbage-dump called Trash Island, Atari sets off alone in a miniature Junior-Turbo Prop and flies across the river in search of his bodyguard-dog, Spots. There, with the assistance of a pack of newly-found mongrel friends, he begins an epic journey that will decide the fate and future of the entire Prefecture.”
Isle of Dogs hits theaters on March 23, 2018.
