New Fantastic Mr Fox Trailer Online
Funny antics from Clooney & Co

There's a brand-new and very different trailer online now for Wes Anderson's adaptation of the Roald Dahl story Fantastic Mr. Fox, and it's the funniest one yet. Check it out here.

As we see from this latest selection of clips, Mr. Fox (George Clooney) is determined to move out of his cramped burrow even when warned about his odious neighbours, dastardly chicken farmers Boggis (Brian Cox), Bean (Michael Gambon) and Bunce (Hugo Guinness). Gorgeous stop-motion trouble ensues.

Fantastic Mr. Fox is out on October 23, so this will almost certainly be the last full trailer. Now if you'll excuse us, we're off to get in line.

RE:
Agreed Evil Dave, the more I see of this film the more I can't wait. I was worried that trailer would disappoint after the first one but I enjoyed (and have watched and re watched it) even more than the original. The early reviews seem to be very positive and I cannot wait to see what the finished film is like. More

I'm afraid I'm gonna have to disagree with Jasper_29. It looks totally sublime. I'm not a massive Wes Anderson fan, but I do like his films (Bottle Rocket and The Royal Tennenbaums being my personal favourites) and this looks like it could top them all. I'm a huge fan of stop-motion animation and this ticks all the boxes. I was most concerned by the casting of George Clooney (even though he was my man-crush since Out Of Sight) but even that seems to have paid off. I simply cannot wait. I see a f More

They're trying too hard...
GROUNDBREAKING ANIMATION!!! ALL-STAR VOICE CAST by OSCAR WINNERS!!! PIXAR SUCKS!!!!! It's as if the producers are afraid no-one is going to see Wes Anderson's latest 90 minutes of mildly amusing nothingness. More
