"If what I think is happening, is happening, it better not be."
"We're a pack of scary indestructible alpha dogs. You're talking like a bunch of housebroken... pets."
A glorious stop-motion animated double bill, full of Anderson’s idiosyncratic style, heart and humour.
We start with Fantastic Mr. Fox, based on Roald Dahl’s tale of a crafty vulpes vulpes (Clooney) trying to outwit some murderous local farmers so he can provide for his family (and friends!).
Followed by Anderson's stunning stop-motion animation which sees young boy Atari travel to the Isle of Dogs to rescue his pet, where he is helped by a pack of strays led by Chief (Cranston).
