The Fantastic Mr. Fox, Hotel Grand Budapest, Moonrise Kingdom, Rushmore and The Royal Tenenbaums director made a Christmas-themed short called Coming Together.
Okay so technically this short film was made as sort of a holiday commercial for a certain chain of clothing stores. But really if they hadn’t shown the company’s logo (maybe twice) you probably wouldn’t know that. So I’m in no way promoting that brand. I just like Wes Anderson’s work and think this is a great little thing that his fans (and not just them) will probably enjoy. Watch out for Adrien Brody.
There’s always such an undeniable timeless charm to Wes Anderson’s movies and that comes across to great effect in this Christmas-themed short film. Oh and besides the titles I mentioned in the intro, Anderson also wrote and directed The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou and The Darjeeling Limited. Really the man has yet to make a bad movie. I doubt that’s going to change anytime soon, hopefully never.
Up next for Wes Anderson is another stop-motion animation (like The Fantastic Mr. Fox), apparently about talking dogs. They will be voiced by Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, Bill Murray and Jeff Goldblum. The animation doesn’t have a title yet and we won’t be seeing it until sometime in 2018.
