Not willing to live in a hole anymore, George Clooney's Mr. Fox buys what seems to be a perfect new home for his family, but problems await.
"The Fantastic Mr. Fox" is still weeks away from its theatrical release in November, but 20th Century Fox has released a brand new trailer for the stop-motion animation in anticipation to it. Debuted at Apple, the fresh promo video takes a look at Mr. Fox's decision to buy a new home for his family despite the danger that may come with it.
This animated feature revolves around Mr. Fox who steals chickens, ducks, and turkeys from three mean, stinky and wealthy farmers, Boggis, Bunce and Bean, to feed his family. When the farmers had enough with his action, they are determined to kill him, endangering not only Mr. Fox's beloved family, but the whole animal community. Trapped underground and with not enough food to go around, he comes up with a plan. He gets the animals band together to fight back.
Based on the novel by author Roald Dahl, "The Fantastic Mr. Fox" comes from director/producer/writer Wes Anderson and animator Mark Gustafson. Scheduled to open the 53rd Times BFI London Film Festival on October 14, the movie is set to open wide in the U.S. November 13. Among those contributing for the characters' voices are George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody and Willem Dafoe.
