Fantastic Mr Fox trailer arrives

Wes Anderson's stop-motion take...

The first trailer for Wes Anderson's stop-motion 'toon based on Roald Dahl's The Fantastic Mr Fox is now online and you can see it below.

Featuring voices from the likes of George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Jason Schwartzman, Owen Wilson and Bill Murray, it looks to infuse Anderson's quirky style with more than a slight nod to Clooney's Ocean's films.

The animation might not be quite up to the same level as, say, Aardman, but it definitely looks like Anderson's on to a winner.

And we love Murray's pitch-perfect deliver of Badger's line about his explosives expertise.

Take a look at the footage and let us know what you think...

      I've been looking forward to this film and recently read the book again. Sadly the trailer is nothing what I saw in my head. Whilst the film looks fun and quirky, the American accents don't seem to work. I know Anderson wanted old fashioned animation, but it's distracting. :(

      Fantastic Mr Fox is my all time favourite Roald Dahl book and Wes Anderson is my favourite director so this truly is a match made in heaven. I've been so excited about this this to the point where I've had to tell myself to chill the f**k out. Now I've seen the trailer I'm left feeling like I really dont know. Great cast though.
