Isle Of Dogs
The future isn’t bright for the canines of a dystopian Japan.
Due to an outbreak of so-called ‘canine flu’, the Japanese government bans all dogs from the island, sending them to a former garbage dump to fend for themselves.
Over time, the dogs develop a reluctant hierarchy led by Chief (Bryan Cranston), who guides a host of offbeat breeds, including Rex (Edward Norton), Boss (Bill Murray), Duke (Jeff Goldblum), and King (Bob Balaban).
The dogs rule their garbage sanctuary, isolated from the wider community, until one day a boy named Atari (Koyu Rankin) turns up looking for his dog, Spots (Liev Schreiber). Fed up of being separated from humanity, the dogs welcome Atari and work with him to locate Spots, and protect Atari from the Japanese authorities who have come to bring him back home.
Isle of Dogs is a brand-new animation from the incomparable mind of Wes Anderson (The Fantastic Mister Fox, The Grand Budapest Hotel), who has written, directed and produced this film.
Wes Anderson brings together the voices of some of his longest serving actors, including Bill Murray (Ghostbusters, The Grand Budapest Hotel) and Edward Norton (Fight Club, Birdman), along with other off-beat favourites Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad, Drive) and Jeff Goldblum (Thor: Ragnarok).
