I have to admit that my enthusiasm for this project is waning. In fact, the amount of enthusiasm I have for “Fantastic Mr. Fox” lessens every time I see more from the movie.
Obviously, this does not bode well. I can’t quite place my finger on where it went wrong — it’s too stiff, it looks dreary, Wes Anderson barely seems to be directing it — but it’s just losing my interest.
The following making-of featurette has basically made up my decision for me. I won’t be seeing it in the theater.
So, um … enjoy:
“Fantastic Mr. Fox” is scheduled to be released Nov. 25. The vocal talent includes George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Bill Murray, Adrien Brody, Owen Wilson, Jason Schwartzman, Willem Dafoe, Brian Cox, Michael Gambon and Anjelica Huston.
