Fall film: bounty for families!

The forecast for 2009 fall family films is Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, followed by a Toy Story or Two with a solid chance of finding Where the Wild Things Are.

Fantastic Mr. Fox

Release date: November 13
Stars: Meryl Streep, Owen Wilson, Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman, George Clooney
SheKnows movie fact: The first animated feature from director Wes Anderson (The Royal Tenenbaums and Magnolia)
What it's about: Roald Dahl penned the children's book and Anderson's film attempts to capture his world. As such, Anderson insisted his actor's work in the real world and be recorded as such as – opposed to having Streep, Clooney and company in a state-of-the-art recording studio on one coast or another.

A family of foxes living together is the premise of the film, but it also reflects the way in which it was made. Anderson's gift is taking words, combining with emotions and the visual to achieve the utmost powerful scene possible. With an arsenal of animation at his fingertips and a cast of Oscar-winners, Fantastic Mr Fox should be fantastic, indeed.
