Wes Anderson has officially announced the cast, title, and other details of his upcoming stop-motion film Isle of Dogs.Read More
The "X movie in the style of Y director/genre" idea has been done a million times (several times just with Wes Anderson alone), but they don't always work as well as this recut trailer for The Witch.Read More
With Adrien Brody on a train, of course.
We've not heard heads nor tails of Wes Anderson for quite some time now, and yet this news that he's resurfaced to direct a commercial for H&M seems somehow all-too-appropriate.Read More
This is all normal, this is all perfectly normal.Read More
Wes Anderson is going back to stop-motion for his new film about dogs. Indiewire broke the news and also pointed out the irony (or cause for concern?) of Wes Anderson making a film about dogs.Read More

Janine Atkinson and her husband were on their way to Wexham Park Hospital after Janine's contractions started, when the two realized that they weren't going to make it to the hospital in time and would need to find a place to pull over.Read More
"Scott Lang faces the horror of his truth."
Patrick Willems, the indie filmmaker behind "What If Wes Anderson Directed X-Men," has returned with another gift for cinema studies nerds: a Werner Herzog-inspired parody of Ant-Man. The aching slowness of this adaptation manages to bridge the gap between self-serious goofiness and true existential dread.Read More
Apparently he likes beating up Owen Wilson a lot.
You wouldn't normally associate Wes Anderson with violence, but if you've seen a few of his films, you know it can get pretty grisly.Read More
Is it too late to fire Bryan Singer?
Friend to the site Patrick Willems has made some pretty great videos in his "comic book movies as made by famous directors" series (remember Tommy Wiseau's Batman and Ingmar Bergman's Flash?), but this might be my favorite, if only for the perfectly appropriate jumpsuits. Eat your heart out, First Class!Read More
This was practically required under the law of the Internet. We already got a preliminary version of it; now we've got stage two, with actual footage from The Force Awakens. Next step: A recut of the whole damn movie.Read More

Why Not Do It With Some Style?
Now that Star Wars: Episode VII has a writer, it'll need a director. And with this audition tape, Wes Anderson—or, well, someone on the Conan staff with a good sense of Andersonian whimsy—has shown us what an Episode VII directed by the maestro of quirk might look like. There's Junior Telescope Club member Han Solo, Boba Fett in a Steve Zissou-style red beanie, and a healthy amount of goldenrod yellow (of course). Oh, and Han shoots first.

We don't often post videos that are simply advertisements for something but in this case, we couldn't help ourselves. So yadda, yadda, yadda, Sony is putting out a new cell phone but they had the awesome idea to pick kids' brains about what cell phones actually are and how they work. The results? Predictably adorable. But it doesn't end there. They then tasked Wes Anderson, director of The Royal Tenenbaums, Fantastic Mr. Fox , and the upcoming Moonrise Kingdom, to create a short-film about it. It has robots. Robots with rocket fuel. The actual results should be out in a full spot on March 24 but here's a sneak peak. (via /Film)Read More
The trailer for writer-director-auteur Wes Anderson's forthcoming film Moonrise Kingdom has dropped and it looks pretty fantastic. Set in the late 1960s, the film centers around a puppy love romance between two twelve year-olds that culminates in their running away, and the subsequent man hunt. Add Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Frances McDormand, Jason Schwartzman, Tilda Swinton, Harvey Keitel, and (of course) Bill Murray, and it just gets even better. The 1960s setting and the very young cast are interesting moves for Anderson; he's used a '60s aesthetic in a lot of his movies and had very young actors in his movies before, but it will be interesting to see how his directoral abilities and stylized film making will work with the cast. I simply can't wait for the slow-motion walking scenes and daddy issues. See the trailer, after the break.Read More
The wide angle shots. The overwhelming ennui. Unrequited love and suicidal longing. Primary colors and dry humor. The slow-mo sequence with accompanying glam rock.
Titled stills with twee Mark Mothersbaugh instrumental accompaniment. These are some of Wes Anderson's directorial cliches, but we love him for them.
Urlesque found the best Wes Anderson parodies on Youtube that pay homage to one of our generation's finest auteurs, Wesley Mortimer Wales Anderson.
This is an entire four days ("four Internet eons") old, but it's still fresh: SlateV put together a spoof video imagining the Super Bowl as directed by Quentin Tarantino, Wes Anderson, David Lynch, Werner Herzog, and a few more auteurs.
David Lynch Super Bowl=regular Super Bowl with scary noises, shaky camera, and demonic bobbleheads thrown in. It's funny 'cause it's true.
