Trailer Watch: The Fantastic Mr. Fox trailer

This does not appear to be a faithful adaptation (even by a very liberally stretched imagination) and the stop-motion is a bit jerky, but it’s got a sort of charm to it. I kind of dig it, but I think I’m still on the fence.

The Royal Tenenbaums director Wes Anderson’s adaptation of Roald Dahl’s The Fantastic Mr. Fox will premiere at the 53rd edition of the London Film Festival (in October) before opening in the US on November 13, 2009.

    I love Wes Anderson. But this does not look very worth sitting through to me. The flicker of the hair on top of already ho-hum stop motion. Perhaps makes me appreciate the art it some other recent stop motion stuff that I've loved (like Coraline).

    If you close your eyes and just listen to it, it sounds mildly funny …

    Yeah, I'm torn on this movie. Wes Anderson is great, but the animation in this trailer looks rushed. Additionally, it's a little disappointing that they didn't somehow include Gerald Scarfe. He designed the sets for the stage version of Fantastic Mr. Fox and has experience in animation (art direction for Hercules, animated sequences in The Wall). I don't know, but I think his artistic p.o.v. would've added something interesting to the film.
