Trailer of the Week – Fantastic Mr. Fox

The latest trailer for Wes Anderson’s Fantastic Mr. Fox proves that the filmmaker can seamlessly transport his quirky style and humor to animation. In fact, the delightfully simple, yet expressive stop-motion animation looks much like the underwater sequences in Anderson’s The Life Aquatic. With George Clooney providing the voice of Mr. Fox, the movie is based on a Roald Dahl story, and the trailer showcases Mr. Fox’s plan to escape his mundane foxhole life and do battle with some nasty farmers. Everything from the vibrant colors to the deadpan dialogue to the Britpop soundtrack makes this trailer feel of a piece with the rest of Anderson’s distinctive body of work. (The presence of Anderson regulars Owen Wilson and Jason Schwartzman certainly helps.) If you close your eyes and just listen to the trailer, you might mistake it for one of the director’s live-action outings.
