Houston Knights (1987-88)

Who doesn’t love a good stereotype?

Fantastic Mr. Fox in theatres!

Houston native and FANTASTIC filmmaker, Wes Anderson, gives us The Fanstastic Mr. Fox.

From Fox’s YouTube page:

“From director Wes Anderson (Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums) comes FANTASTIC MR. FOX, based on the book by Roald Dahl. Featuring the voices of George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, and Jason Schwartzman. ”

and IMDB:

This is Wes Anderson‘s first film that did not feature one of his signature slow motion sequences.

The titles and text used in the production design are in Helvetica Bold. All previous Wes Anderson movies have utilized Futura Bold.

My take:

Mr. Anderson is Wilde about the Importance of Being Ernest!  I can’t wait to watch it.
