FANTASTIC MR. FOX

Given the absolutely atrocious 'Summer' weather, October doesn't seem too far around the corner and, as usual, it's going to be a very important month for UK film buffs.
Once again, The Times London Film Festival will be screening the very best in World Cinema and I've just received details of a very special opening night film.

Wednesday 14th October will see the World Premiere of Wes Anderson's FANTASTIC MR FOX, which tells the story of the best-selling children's book by British author Ronald Dahl.This will be Anderson's first animated film and features the voices of an impressive cast of actors.
Anderson, George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Jason Schwartzman and other members of the voice cast are likely to attend this special screening.
It's highly unlikely we'll be able to attend this year's festival, but The Last Picture Show will bring news, interviews and festival-related clips through September and October.

One member of the voice cast is our very own Jarvis Cocker from Pulp, so cast your eyes to the post above and you'll find a video of Pulp treating the Glastonbury thousands to one of their finest songs.

  1. This is just marvelous-- Wes doing a Dahl book and Spike Jonze directing Where the Wild Things Are. I wish I were a kid again. :)
