Fantastic Mr. Fox trailer and website

Finally! After USA Today's recent gallery of images of the film, the long awaited trailer for Wes Anderson's first animated film and film adaptation is now online!

Fantastic Mr. Fox - Official Website

First thing, I guess I was misinformed, but I swore this film was going to be released under the Fox Searchlight banner, and not 20th Century Fox... so much for that Fox Searchlight press account I just got.

As for the film itself, it's peculiar to say the least. I never read Roald Dahl's original Fantastic Mr. Fox storybook, but much like the rest of his literary work I assume it's very British. So maybe it's just Fox misrepresenting the film, as the try to make Wes Anderson's usually artsy style look like its a comedy in the vein of Ice Age, and chances are it wil be nothing like that; point being, other than the visual style of the models and puppets, I'm not getting a British vibe from the trailer and that's a little unsettling.

I think the real verdict will be seeing some actual film clips and not a gagged up trailer; just something a bit more propper at least before the film releases this November.

I will never understand your fascination with British stuff. Still, it looks good.
