New Delhi [India] July 6 (ANI): Who let the dogs out?
In what is clearly a first for cinephiles, the makers of Wes Anderson's upcoming animation film 'Isle of Dogs' had a special screening for dogs and their owners in Mumbai. They had canines of all pedigrees, shapes and sizes waltz into a suburban viewing theatre here.
Apart from the special screening, the makers had some special activities and grooming sessions lined up for the dogs making it a memorable day for the dog-owners and their pets.
'Isle of Dogs' as the name suggests is a story about dogs. The stop-motion animation English film is set in the fictional Japanese city of Megasaki and revolves around the story of a young boy who goes in search for his dog after being banished to an island post an illness outbreak.
Though humans play integral characters in the story, dogs of all colours, shapes and sizes are the ones who steal the show in the film. The movie comprising a star-studded cast and 240 micro sets has a total of 1,000 clay puppets.
Among the main cast who voice the central characters in the film, Bryan Cranston of 'Breaking Bad' fame voices the character of the alpha dog, while Scarlett Johansson voices Nutmeg, a high-pedigree pup.
Directed by Wes Anderson, 'Isle of Dogs' was released in theatres across India on July 6th by Fox Star Studios through Specialty Distribution Company Runaway-Luminosity Distribution. (ANI)
