While our eyes may be on some of the bigger animated films out there for the near future — We’re talking Incredibles 2 and Wreck-It Ralph 2 — there is one that has the attention of film fans. I’m talking about Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs.

Fans of Anderson’s work will know that the filmmaker is no newcomer to animation. Nearly a decade ago, he released the charming stop-motion film Fantastic Mr. Fox, which managed to be faithful to his own style and Roald Dahl’s original novel. Now, his next film is set to be a wholly original animated work that takes place across the ocean in Japan.

We’ve seen a trailer for the film, and it looks to be just as fun and Wes Anderson-y as you would expect. Fox Searchlight has now taken the opportunity to show off a new motion poster for the film, and it’s pretty darn hilarious. Check it out below!

Below if the official 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.
