Angry farmers, tired of sharing their chickens with a sly fox, look to get rid of their opponent Mr. Fox and his family in this stop-motion comedy featuring voice work from George Clooney, Bill Murray, Willem Dafoe, Owen Wilson and several more of Wes Anderson's best-loved actors.

Anderson pulls off the almost impossible task of making his lone (as of this writing) animated effort look and feel just like another chapter in his filmography. The stop-motion animation is striking and downright beautiful and the whip smart story (adapted from the beloved Roald Dahl book) zips along at an incredible pace, but still manages to embody the rich emotion. It's pretty much everything we expect from an Anderson film that just happens to be animated. (R.J. LaForce)

Natty in suit and tie and fresh from an introduction (to a group of high-schoolers, natch) of his new film I Am David, Feig impresses with an open intelligence, an engaging charisma, and what appears to be a genuine appreciation for where he is in his career and life.
