Okay, the first thing is to not freak out. Wes Anderson’s upcoming film, “The Fantastic Mr. Fox” is stop-motion animation, not country-time-band/Chuck E. Cheese horrifying animatronics that when you pull back the curtain and see their dead, mechanical eyes starring up into nothingness, you have nightmares for the rest of your life. It’s just that out of context, this new photo, which debuted today on JoBlo.com, makes you think that.
Head over to JoBlo to check out the photo and hit the jump for a brief synopsis. “The Fantastic Mr. Fox” hits theatres on November 13th, although there’s speculation it may debut at the Venice or Toronto Film Festival in September.
For those just tuning in, here’s a brief synopsis:
Based on the book by Roald Dahl, the film focuses on a crafty fox (voiced by George Clooney) who finds himself and his family targeted for death by the three dumb, plug-ugly farmers who tire of sharing their chickens with the critter.
