Wes Anderson's Fantastic Mr. Fox

Iron Man 2 isn't the only movie we have a new batch of photos from today! FilmsActu has dug up a high res set of photos from Wes Anderson's Fantastic Mr. Fox. The very first photo of Anderson's Mr. Fox, voiced by George Clooney, ended up on the web last week. But Fox (isn't it ironic that they're distributing this?) had us pull the photo down because it had made its way back to Anderson and had made him pretty upset that a bad photo like that was the first thing everyone was seeing. However, we now have two bigger and better photos from Fantastic Mr. Fox today that are worth checking out. I'm still quite excited for this!

Fantastic Mr. Fox features George Clooney and Cate Blanchett as the voices of Mr. and Mrs. Fox (seen holding the lantern above), Bill Murray as Mr. Badger, plus Meryl Streep and Anjelica Huston as well as Jason Schwartzman. If you're looking for some extra details, Brandon put together a full-length article back in March about the book and the movie. The film is now a Fox Searchlight release and these two photos are all that we've seen so far, though I've heard that we'll see a trailer attached to Aliens in the Attic at the end of this month. Let us know if you're still looking forward to this or are just going to wait to see a trailer first.

BUT DON'T YOU TRUST HIM!!!! DON'T YOU TRUST HIM!!! *cries* and scene
  • captain subtext
    I'm really not sure all those things I love about Wes Anderson's charakters and his movies in general will work in an animated world. So like #6, by now I'm rather curious than excited. Then again, you gotta have faith in a guy that tremendously talented.
  • indyjack
    the stop motion sequences in the life aquatic were the best parts of that film in my opinion. wes anderson is a genius . I love roald dahl's stories and this one was always one of my favorites. between this movie and where the wild things are, we should have a pretty decent dose of quality children's literature. Verrry exciting.
  • Couch
    All the elements are there for an amazing movie. I'm looking forward to the (very unlikely) day when stop-motion, and not CG, rules the big screen.

    It is stop moiton ...and combining it with a really good story by Roald Dahl is a killer combination. If you would like to make your own stop motion movies ..check out stopmotioncentral.
  • Ray Fox
    I love foxes.Foxes are my favorite animal anyway so this is a genius idea in my view. I saw the trailer for the movie and I thing it looks like it will be great. So fooy to you all thnat have already desided you hate it!
