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)

2015 is shaping up to be a triumphal parade of my own childhood.  Unearthing milestones like my junior-high screening of Road Warrior, my family visit as a tiny kid to Disneyland, the comics I stayed up reading with a flashlight under the covers long after lights out, the first movie I ever saw in a theater: Star Wars.
