MANILA, Philippines – Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs is screening in the Philippines!
The stop-motion animated movie was exclusively released at Ayala Malls Cinemas – Glorietta 4, Trinoma, Market!Market!, Cloverleaf Balintawak, and Fairview Terraces – on Wednesday, May 30.
Isle of Dogs opened the 68th Berlin International Film Festival in February and won Anderson the Silver Bear for Best Director.
Anderson’s film is set in a dystopian near-future Japan, where dogs are banished to an island due to a canine-flu outbreak. It’s there that Atari Kobayashi (Koyu Rankin) looks for his dog Spots.
“We think of it as referring to a whole range of Japanese filmmakers and Japanese culture, but Kurosawa is the main movie influence,” said Anderson in a release about the movie.
Aside from Rankin, other star-studded voice cast in the film include Greta Gerwig, Yoko Ono, Frances McDormand, Live Schreiber, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Bob Balaban, Jeff Goldblum, Bryan Cranston, Scarlett Johansson, F. Murray Abraham, Tilda Swinton, and Harvey Keitel. – Rappler.com
