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?
