Fantastic Mr. Fox

Can't wait for "The Grand Budapest Hotel"? After seeing it at the Berlin Film Festival, we don't blame you (our review). But if you want a bounty of Wes Anderson in your life, and soon, hit your local video store or online retailer or wherever you buy DVDs, because there's a treat coming.

The Criterion Collection is dropping "Fantastic Mr. Fox" next week, and get folks ready, they've revealed a new trailer for the film. Introduced by an animated Jarvis Cocker (who voices Petey in the movie), the spot takes you behind the scenes of the Roald Dahl adaptation, while pimping the bounty of extras the release will contain. It's another reminder of the detailed worlds Anderson puts together in his films, something he reportedly tops in 'Budapest,' which might be his most ambitious picture yet.

So, watch below and get ready to shell out some cash for Fantastic Mr. Fox (Criterion Collection) (Blu-ray/DVD) February 18th. Trailer below followed by details of the DVD extras.
