The first trailer for Wes Anderson’s ‘Isle of Dogs’ has landed

If it feels like we’ve been waiting ages for a new Wes Anderson film, it’s because we have.

The director’s last film, The Grand Budapest Hotel, came out back in March 2014.

The world was a very different place then, and if anything it feels like far more than three-and-a-half years have passed.

Of course, we have had the odd easter egg in the meantime, with Anderson’s H&M Christmas advert a particular highlight, but we’re edging closer to the next addition to the acclaimed director’s canon.

It’s nearly four years since The Grand Budapest Hotel was released

Isle of Dogs, a stop-motion animation with a star-studded cast, is due out in March 2018.

Anderson teased the release back in December 2016, and has given away the odd clue in the meantime, but we’ve now got a full trailer.

The Japanese-set film also has a quite lovely poster, which does far more than just show off the frankly ridiculously stacked cast list.

Plenty of Wes Anderson staples will be involved, including Bill Murray and Edward Norton, who both had prominent roles in Anderson’s 2013 film Moonrise Kingdom (among others).

Other big names involved include Bryan Cranston, Jeff Goldblum, Scarlett Johansson and Tilda Swinton.

Yes, it’s a film about dogs, but it looks like being one of the best films about dogs that you’ll ever see.
