What is enterentertainment Tonight?

Imagine a world without dogs. It’s hardly worth thinking about, but in this dystopian look at Japan twenty years from now, all dogs have been banned from society after a dangerous illness called canine flu. Rather than being euthanized, the mutts are quarantined and moved to Trash Island where they are on their own. A group of four-legged friends include Chief (Bryan Cranston), Rex (Edward Norton), Boss (Bill Murray), Duke (Jeff Goldblum) and King (Bob Balaban), and they are seriously missing life among humanity – not to mention foods that don’t mold and are not infested with maggots.

Then one day, a young boy named Atari Kobayashi (Koyu Rankin) shows up on the island with a stolen Junior-Turbo Prop XJ750 plane in search of his own long lost pet, Spots. It doesn’t take long for him to gain the trust of the islanders, who agree to help him find the dog. Of course, back home, he is visibly missing and his family informs the authorities. Soon they arrive on the island preparing to bring him home, but Atari doesn’t want to leave without Spots – and his new friends won’t let him either. As Atari’s search takes them further, it becomes clear that there is a much darker conspiracy going on in the nation – and that his dog may be being held captive somewhere.

Oscar nominee Wes Anderson (‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’, ‘Fantastic Mr. Fox’, ‘The Darjeeling Limited’) returns as director and screenwriter of a new stop-motion animation ‘Isle of Dogs’. His previous collaborators Kunichi Nomura, as well as Roman Coppola and Jason Schwartzman (“Mozart in the Jungle”) also contributed to the writing of the story. The film, which features a star-studded cast, was initially teased by the filmmaker in December 2016 when he released the briefest clip from the film showing Edward Norton’s character Rex.

‘Isle of Dogs’ will be released in the United States on March 23, 2018.
