It’s been eight years since auteur filmmaker Wes Anderson introduced us to a family of fantastic foxes. But in March 2018, his latest foray into stop-motion animation, Isle of Dogs, will light up cinema screens.
It’s set in Japan 20 years into the future, in a world where dogs over-populate the country and have been exiled to a waste disposal island. The film’s roll-call of voice actors features a bunch of Anderson regulars (Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman, Edward Norton, Tilda Swinton, Jeff Goldblum, Frances McDormand, and Harvey Keitel) along with newbies Greta Gerwig, Bryan Cranston, and Yoko Ono. A Wes Anderson film about dogs that’s set in Japan? This is our idea of cinematic heaven.
Isle of Dogs premieres on 15 February 2018 at Berlin Film Festival.
General release 28 March 2018.

Have you ever imagined Amy Winehouse or Nick Cave as a Chihuahua, Neil Young as a Vizsla, or PJ Harvey as an Afghan hound? That’s exactly what San Francisco-based artist Michael Gillette has done through his unique illustration project, blending beloved, iconic music legends, both past and present, with their dog counterparts. Pack of Dogs, our first foray into book publishing, is a celebration of pup and pop culture for music and dog lovers alike.
