Today has been a great day for trailer lovers, with three cool new trailers dropping.
Kenneth Branagh is both directing and starring in Murder on the Orient Express, the highly-anticipated adaptation of acclaimed mystery writer Agatha Christie’s famed novel. It’s got a star-studded cast that we get to see more of in this trailer, including Johnny Depp, Judi Dench, Daisy Ridley, Penelope Cruz, Michelle Pfeiffer, Willem Dafoe, and more. The classic story follows a variety of characters stuck on a train when a murder occurs. This is classic murder mystery genre fare, and we can’t wait.

You have to give it to Wes Anderson, he certainly is original. I don't think I've ever seen another director who can mimic the same formula in live-action as Anderson can in animated films. Isle of Dogs is the perfect examply of this, as Anderson captures the story of the Japanese government banishing/quarantining their dogs to an island of trash in the trademark way only he can create.
This film looks like so much fun. I've always enjoyed Wes Anderson's unique way of storytelling, and Isle of Dogs looks like it'll be another fun film for moviegoers. Furthermore, this has the potential to be one of Anderson's more successful animated films, as it features an all-star cast, along with an intriguing story.

If Fantastic Mr. Fox is your favorite Wes Anderson movie, then Christmas just came early for you. The trailer for Isle of Dogs is here, and it's a delightful stop-motion animated film with a cast of dogs voiced by the likes of Bryan Cranston and Ed Norton. In this fanciful world, all the dogs have been sent to "Trash Island," but a brave 12-year-old boy embarks on a journey to the island to find his dog. It's so very Wes Anderson-y, in the most pleasing way possible. Scarlett Johansson and Greta Gerwig also voice characters, and the movie comes out on March 23. »

Innovative documentary filmmaker Alison McAlpine is back in the indie film fold, nearly a decade after her impressive “nonfiction ghost story” short film “Second Sight” debuted in 2008. This time around, McAlpine is again gunning for distinct filmmaking, now trained literally to the heavens.
In her “Cielo,” McAlpine is focused on the skies above the Andes and the Atacama Desert in northern Chile, which will debut at the New York Film Festival next month. Details on the film are purposely slim, but its official Nyff page explains that “McAlpine keeps the vast galaxies above and beyond in a delicate balance with the earthbound world of people, gently alighting on the desert- and mountain-dwelling astronomers, fishermen, miners, and cowboys who live their lives with reverence and awe for the skies,” adding that the film “itself is an act of reverence and awe, and its sense of wonder ranges from the intimate and »

Here’s what you know about Peter Rabbit, even if you don’t think you know anything about the beloved Beatrix Potter creation: he’s bad, but because he’s a cute little bunny, he’s also good. The star of Potter’s many tales about a darling family of anthropomorphic garden dwellers is now the recipient of his very own hybrid origin story, one that features no less than James Corden voicing the fluffy bunny. And no, he’s still not wearing any pants.
In “Peter Rabbit,” Sony Pictures Animation’s “irreverent, contemporary comedy with attitude” about the little dude, Peter’s long-standing feud with Mr. McGregor (Domhnall Gleeson, who seems to be hellbent on dominating the space of “beloved kid lit classics, reinvented for the big screen” these days) takes on a new dimension when the pair battle over a charming new neighbor (Rose Byrne), who apparently also adores animals. »

The movie takes place in Japan, 20 years in the future. A canine saturation has reached “epidemic proportions,” the voicer in the trailer explains. And an outbreak of dog flu causes the government to take emergency orders — the dogs are banished to trash island.
“I don’t think I can stomach any more of this garbage,” one dogs says, as a pack of others agree.
Then, a young boy comes to the island in search of his lost pooch, Spot.
“We’ll find him. Wherever he is. If he’s alive. We’ll find your dog,” the other dogs console the boy.

A future dystopia where a group of dogs, exiled to an island made of trash, complain about the lack of variety in their diet while a plucky young boy risks everything for the love of his pooch could only be science fiction as seen through the eyes of Wes Anderson. Welcome to Isle of Dogs.
