It's now on the front page. (and here too)



It's really, really awesome. Oddly enough I'm excited by the fur moving frame-to-frame since I wondered if if it might. (As it does in non-plasticine stop motion.) Every line Schwartzman has is funny, and I'm 100% sure that kids will like the trailer. It's got like everything you'd want as a kid in a movie. Mr. Fox's trademark whistle. All of it's awesome, even if the trailer is definitely not pitched exclusively at Anderson's audience.

Also it appears they're back at 20th Century Fox.

I was surprised by the animation. In a good way though.

I don't know how much you can take from the trailer. I see Wes' style, but it is tough to pick up on the humor. But so far, so good

I'm disappointed by it. It sounds like a Wes Anderson movie. It sort of looks like a Wes Anderson movie. But it feels like a parody of a Wes Anderson movie using old-fashioned amusement park animatronics. No memorable moments, no distinctive usage of music. I'm hoping for the best but not encouraged by this at all.

The day a Wes trailer is released is usually very uplifting. This is anything but.

I think it's important to keep in mind Fox is going for a wide audience, and so the trailer and tv spots are going to be cut to appeal to as many people as possible. I actually think it being animated and an adapatation of a famous author's book, and something aimed at kids makes more room for idiosyncrasy. The trailer won't have the music or the feel even of the film, but I think it's crazy not to say the footage looks great.

I'm ecstatic the trailer is out already! I guess November isn't too far away, but I wasn't expecting the trailer yet, personally.

I will screenshoot the crap out of the HD version tomorrow.

Oh. My. God.

I don't think I've ever been this excited for a Wes movie after seeing a trailer. And I thought the trailer for TLA was one of the best trailers I had seen in a long time.

It's not quite what I was expecting (the tone is a little lighter than what I remember from the book), and the trailer voiceover was annoying and out of touch with what was going on in the clips. But the look, the feel....I'm sold.

Glen Kenny, ardent Anderson supporter, obliquely takes down the Fantastic naysayers and tears them a new asshole.

Long distance dedication...
...The Loud Family's "Ballad Of How You Can All Shut Up" goes out to Movieline's S.T. Vanairsdale and Spout's Christopher Campbell, whose concern-trolling (no links) over the putatively underwhelming trailer for Wes Anderson's Fantastic Mr. Fox isn't really anything more than very poorly disguised pre-emptive poking at a film that they're clearly dying to shit all over. The bad faith is palpable; you can practically hear the guys honing their boasts about how they helped "bring" the movie "down" that they can recite at all the corporate holiday parties they hope the recession won't be canceling. Really makes you love the internet even more than usual.

Specific things I love about what's in the trailer:

-How much fun Bill seems to be having when he says "Demolitions Expert."

-EVERYTHING Jason says. They seem to be giving away what I'm guessing will be his big moment in which he overcomes his insecurities, but the way he says "Because I'm little" with such pride is just fantastic.

-The beagle collapsing.

-Mr Fox and Wes share the same tailor.

-That Wes seems to be filming the tunnels the way he filmed the Belafonte.

20th Century Fox's decision to market the trailer to a wider audience is understandable, though I wonder if that's what they were going for, why they didn't have this ready for Ice Age 3's opening weekend. If you want to hit the larger audience, hit it.

That said, even if the trailer isn't geared towards Wes fans, there's plenty in it to get us excited. I didn't think the film would look so much like his others. I'm glad his trademarks are all there. Hell, there's an overhead shot of a character arranging things on a desk or table.

This movie looks incredibly charming and whimsical, which gets me to another thought. I'm amazed that Noah has anything to do with this. His two scripts with Wes (esp. this one, but I'm just going by the trailer here) are nothing at all like his other work, which I also love. Obviously Wes in the director, but every line of dialogue in that trailer is in Wes' voice. It makes me really curious how they actually collaborate.

Screenshots are up in the gallery! All the images are taken from the HD trailer, so have fun snagging some desktop backgrounds. Mine is currently Ash (Schwartzman's character)

Reposting this over here.. Thanks, theodorevalley!

The first song in the trailer is the Bobby Fuller Four's "Let Her Dance". The second one is...I don't know. The third one is a version of the "Peter Gunn" theme by Henry Mancini. The fourth and final song is Clarence Carter's awesome "Looking For a Fox".

I can't believe I didn't notice the Peter Gunn theme. I've got it on vinyl in my apartment!

Man, I really want to be excited about this movie, I do. But, I just can't. I like the trailer, I think it will probably be a good movie but I'm just not all worked up about it like I normally am for his movies. It just makes me want to wonder about what he's doing next, which probably won't be until 2015...

I hope it's great though.
