Fantastic Mr Fox

One of my favourite Roald Dahl books is being brought to the big screen by Wes Andersen and Noah Baumbach.It will be hitting screens in London in October (the US in Nov). Have a look at the trailer and tell me what you think. Personally I am not as excited as I should be. It's been thoroughly Hollywood-ised. I couldn't pick out much of the original book from the trailer. It has an all star cast including Bill Murray and George Clooney. Who cares though? Surely in an animation it doesn't really matter. In the early Disney Movies no one gave a shit. I would have preferred someone like Nick Park, of Wallace and Gromit to give us an understated interpretation.
