Our good friends at Fox Searchlight have sent over the official poster for Wes Anderson's Fantastic Mr. Fox for us to debut exclusively today. By now I hope everyone knows all about this stop-animation movie based on the beloved Roald Dahl book featuring the voices of George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, Willem Dafoe, Jason Schwartzman, Michael Gambon, Adrien Brody, Brian Cox, Anjelica Huston, and Wes Anderson himself. I'm digging the offset design and colors on this poster, I really hope it catches everyone's eye at movie theaters around the country, as it's being sent out this weekend. Enjoy!
Fantastic Mr. Fox is both written and directed by the fantastic Oscar nominated filmmaker Wes Anderson, of Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, and also The Darjeeling Limited most recently. This is based on Roald Dahl's classic children's book of the same name. Fellow indie director Noah Baumbach also helped co-write the screenplay with Anderson. Fox Searchlight is bringing Wes Anderson's Fantastic Mr. Fox to theaters everywhere starting on November 13th this fall.

Those are some really hideously ugly character designs.

I am really looking forward to this. I love the dirty, quirky animation. You guys want smooth lines watch Cloudy with Meat Balls or whatever it's called.

Anybody else think of the life aquatic when they read the tagline?

Animals with human eyes freak me right the fuck out. Creepy. And the poster is way too red, which is unsettling for some reason. And it's so cluttered with words...meh.

I love Anderson's obsession with Futura. Sadly, this will be a fantastic flop.
