Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum and Greta Gerwig are among the voice cast of Wes Anderson’s stop-motion animated adventure about a boy and his faithful pet out to stop a canine genocide. Wes Anderson took his fascination for obsessively detailed hermetic worlds, meticulous visual compositions, oddball characters and idiosyncratic storytelling quirks to a heightened level in 2009 with his delightful stop-motion animated adaptation of Roald Dahl’s Fantastic Mr. Fox. Returning to the form, the director delivers an even wilder, more distinctive experience with Isle of Dogs, the thoroughly captivating tale of a 12-year-old Japanese boy’s quest to rescue his beloved pet, and indeed an entire outcast canine population, from the genocidal scheme of a crooked mayoral regime. The Fox Searchlight March release has cult potential stamped all over it. Read More here

This year, she’s nominated in the lead actress category for her portrayal of a bereaved mother in director and screenwriter Martin McDonagh’s best picture-nominated film. In an interview with The Times on Tuesday morning, McDonagh called McDormand “probably the best actor of her generation.” Read More here

I have a number of favourite actors. If I had carte-blanche to cast a film it would probably be filled up with characters. Maybe brilliant underachievers, who never quite hit their heights for one reason or another (Mickey Rourke, Eric Roberts, Rutger Hauer), or maybe they just died before their time like John Cazale. It’s those chameleons that I find most engaging though, those who are occasionally a lead, but often find themselves as second billing (if that). People like John Goodman. Read More here
