Isle of Dogs — Film Clip: 'Okay It's Worth It'


added: Wed, Feb 7th '18

It's literally a dog-eat-dog world in the first film clip from Wes Anderson's new stop-motion comedy "Isle of Dogs."

Taking place in a dystopian future Japan, Anderson's upcoming animated fable sets up a kooky scenario where all dogs have been banished to an abandoned trash-filled island due to a sudden outbreak of "dog flu."

Edward Norton and Bryan Cranston are lending their voices to a couple of scruffy-looking terrier dogs who find themselves running around a pack of canine castaways on the quarantine island where even a discarded bag of trash becomes the grounds for a ferocious fight between two groups of hungry mutts.

Also written by Anderson and based on a story he co-wrote with frequent collaborators, filmmaker Roman Coppola, actor Jason Schwartzman, and actor/artist Kunichi Nomura, "Isle of Dogs" will tell the bittersweet adventure story of a 12-year-old Japanese boy who travels to this forbidden island to search for his long-lost dog.

Among the stars also lending their voices to the film are Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, Scarlett Johansson, Tilda Swinton, Frances McDormand, Harvey Keitel, Greta Gerwig, Yoko Ono, Ken Watanabe and many more.

"Isle of Dogs" is set to make its world premiere next week at the 68th Berlin International Film Festival. It will then close out this year's SXSW Film Festival shortly before opening theatrically in the U.S. on March 23rd.

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.
