Dog lovers are going to love this one! Bryan Cranston's Isle of Dogs will release in India on July 6, 2018. The Wes Anderson directorial is an animated stop-motion comedy film that is set on an island in Japan built entirely from the trash outside a city run by a tyrannical mayor. It's a story that is nuanced and deeply political.

As the title suggests the film revolves around a pack of dogs who are exiled to this island when canine flu spreads in Japan. Thus, begins the journey of Atari Kobayashi, a 12-year-old ward to a corrupt Mayor Kobayashi. When, by Executive Decree, all the canine pets of Megasaki City are exiled to a vast garbage-dump called Trash Island, Atari sets off alone in a miniature Junior-Turbo Prop and flies across the river in search of his bodyguard-dog, Spots. There, with the assistance of a pack of newly-found mongrel friends, he sets an epic journey that will decide the fate and future of the entire Prefecture.
The film is led by an all-star voice cast that includes Cranston, Scarlett Johansson, Yoko Ono, Bill Murray, Frances McDormand and Liev Shreiber. It will be released in theaters across India by Fox Star Studios through specialty distribution company Runaway-Luminosity.
The movie was screened at the MAMI Festival in New Delhi earlier this month.
