Here’s your look at the first trailer for Wes Anderson’s stop-motion animated Fantastic Mr. Fox, based on the Roald Dahl book (adapted by Anderson and Noah Baumbach).  Voice cast includes Meryl Streep, George Clooney, Anjelica Huston, and Bill Murray, who if you thought he was lovable as a human, is even more of a huggable snugglebottom as a badger in a suit.

A lot of the other movie sites out there are complaining about the animation looking “weird” or “flat”, but I like that it’s easy on the CGI and not 3D.  3D is particularly stupid.  I like to be free to look at any part of the frame without getting a GD headache, and the screen looking like a pop-up book isn’t a huge selling point for me.  And if I wanted to wear glasses I would’ve been born a nerd.  I don’t want 3D, I don’t want my chair shaking around, and I don’t need an “immersive experience.”  How bout you just make a good movie and let me sit here with my nachos and stay outta my sh*t, eh hotshot?
