Seeing as how Wesley Anderson is one of my favorite auteurs, it is my pleasure to bring you this first look at his long-awaited, stop motion animated effort FANTASTIC MR. FOX. The film, adapted from the children's story by Roald Dahl (author of other great children's literary works, including "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" and "James and the Giant Peach"), tells the story of a fox on the run with his family from a group of evil farmers. Along the way, the fox family encounters other animals plagued by the farmers, causing the animals to band together and create an underground town. The book's full synopsis can be found HERE.

Check out the photo below for your first look at Mr. Fox (George Clooney), Mrs. Fox (Meryl Streep) and Badger (Bill Murray).

Mr. Whale has a WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE tattoo. Shall I continue the trend of Gordon and the Whale staffers with children's book tattoos and get a FANTASTIC MR. FOX tattoo? Email me at [email protected] if you guys find a photo that you think would make a good one.

    If we really start this tradition, Rusty and I are probably going to come to blows over who gets the Amelia Bedalia tattoo.
