Wes Anderson hilariously announces his new animated film, ‘Isle of Dogs’ (feat. Edward Norton)

Renowned, independent director, Wes Anderson, has Collaborated with Crowdrise to announce his new animated feature, Isle of Dogs. Check out the video below;

Anderson doesn’t give much away in terms of plot, however we did get a glimpse of Norton’s character, Rex. The animation style looks quite like Anderson’s first animated feature, Fantastic Mr Fox, maybe just a little crisper. It’s hard to say at this point. Like I said, it’s just a glimpse.

The announcement comes with an opportunity—a raffle, of sorts—to voice a dog in the movie, through Anderson’s crowdrise campaign. Proceeds from the raffle will go towards the Film Foundation.

The Film Foundation is a non-profit organisation dedicated to the preservation and restoration of film heritage.

Isle of Dogs is yet to receive a release date, and stars; Edward Norton, Brian Cranston, Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, Scarlett Johansson, Tilda Swinton, among many more.

Teaser for ‘The Emoji Movie’: I’m positively euphoric right now

The first teaser for the long-awaited Emoji Movie has finally arrived, check it out below;

As someone who doesn’t use/care for emojis, I thought this trailer was a lot of fun. I don’t understand the like to dislike ratio here. It doesn’t look too dissimilar to your average animated movie skewed towards kids.

Having “express yourself” play over the top of the trailer, is a little on-the-nose, but I enjoyed the juxtaposition of the song and Meh’s enthusiasm, or…lack thereof.

The Emoji Movie releases August 4th, 2017, starring Steven Wright, T. J. Miller, and James Corden.

A, somewhat accurate representation of my reaction to the trailer

Alright, I’m genuinely curious; what is it that everyone hates about this trailer? Did it not do justice to the source material, what is it?
