Animated fox face-off between Lars von Trier and Wes Anderson
Genius mashup alert! Willem Dafoe finds himself involved in two films this season with animated foxes, both of which have been combined in this trailer for Chaos Reigns – Satanic Mr. Fox. It starts with the trailer for Wes Anderson’s stop-motion animated Fantastic Mr. Fox, based on Roald Dahl’s 1970 children’s classic about a fox family (with a voice cast including Dafoe, George Clooney, Meryl Streep and Bill Murray). The darker side comes from clips of the infamous fox from Lars von Trier’s controversial drama/horror Antichrist, which is 99.9% live action except for a certain (spoiler alert) talking fox that Dafoe meets in the woods. Charlotte Gainsbourg stars with Dafoe as a couple who lose their child and try to rebuild their relationship at their country cabin, where things start to become more sinister.
(Caution: video contains a graphic scene – guess which film that’s from?! – and might be something of a spoiler for the Antichrist scene.)
Which fox are you more excited to see on the big screen?
