Imagine a world without dogs. It hardly bears thinking about, but in this dystopian look at Japan twenty years into the future, all canines have been banned from society after a bout of a dangerous illness called canine flu. Rather than being euthanised, the pooches are being quarantined and moved to Trash Island where they are left to fend for themselves. One group of four-legged friends includes Chief (Bryan Cranston), Rex (Edward Norton), Boss (Bill Murray), Duke (Jeff Goldblum) and King (Bob Balaban), and they are seriously missing life amongst humankind - not to mention food that isn't mouldy and maggot-infested.
Then one day, a young boy named Atari Kobayashi (Koyu Rankin) shows up on the island with a stolen Junior-Turbo Prop XJ750 aircraft searching for his own long lost pet, Spots. It doesn't take him long to win the trust of the island's residents, who agree to help him search for the dog. Of course, back home, he is noticeably missing and his family inform the authorities. Soon they arrive at the island preparing to take him home, but Atari doesn't want to leave without Spots - and his newfound friends won't let him either. As Atari's search takes them further afield, it becomes clear that there is a much darker conspiracy happening in the nation - and that his dog may be being held prisoner somewhere.
The Oscar nominated Wes Anderson ('The Grand Budapest Hotel', 'Fantastic Mr. Fox', 'The Darjeeling Limited') returns as the director and writer of a new stop-motion animation 'Isle of Dogs'. His previous collaborators Kunichi Nomura, and Roman Coppola and Jason Schwartzman ('Mozart in the Jungle') also helped write the story. The film, which features an all-star cast, was originally teased by the filmmaker back in December 2016 when he unveiled the briefest of clips from the movie showing Edward Norton's character Rex.

Loose and impressionistic, this beautifully shot film traces the career of a DJ who pioneered garage music in France. It's not an easy film to engage with, since the characters and situations remain stubbornly undefined by the atmospheric filmmaking. But fans of the music will find the movie mesmerising as director Mia Hansen-Love cleverly recreates the clubbing culture.
The central figure is Paul Vallee (Felix de Givry), who with his buddy Stan (Hugo Conzelmann) forms a DJ duo called Cheers in the early 1990s, adding a "French touch" to the garage sound and developing a friendly rivalry with their pals Thomas and Guy-Man (Vincent Lacoste and Arnaud Azoulay), better known as Daft Punk. Despite gaining success in France, around Europe and even in America, Paul struggles to make a decent living, mainly because all of his money disappears into his drug habit. So he constantly turns to his mother (Arsinee Khanjian) for help. But the real problem for him is loneliness, as his relationships with a series of girlfriends (including Greta Gerwig and Pauline Etienne) fade away. And nearly 20 years years later, he still feels like he hasn't grown up.
The film is assembled with artistry, capturing the period and settings with an earthy realism while the musical beats churn through every scene. And the actors deliver naturalistic performances that draw out a variety of intriguing themes. So it's deeply frustrating that the film's uneven structure develops so little momentum. De Givry is superb as Paul, but there's nothing about him that becomes terribly interesting apart from his musical innovations. He seems to just drift along, never steering his life in any particular direction, neglecting his relationships to concentrate on the music. Oddly, even his cocaine habit seems to barely impact him, apart from the realisation much later on that the world has moved on without him.

'Francis Ha' star Greta Gerwig made an appearance at the 2014 CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) Fashion Awards held at Alice Tully Hall in New York City. According to Vanity Fair, Greta was a huge fan of Rihanna's controversial see-through dress, revealing: 'She's my body icon, I love her ass so much!' Greta, however, appeared to be dressed the exact opposite of Rihanna with her floor-length, red, long-sleeved gown that had a neck-high neckline.
Meg Ryan will voice Sally in the HIMYM spin-off 'How I Met Your Dad', what can we expect from the new series?
Meg Ryan is allegedly lined up to narrate the mother’s voice in the upcoming spin-off of How I Met Your Mother…the very originally named How I Met Your Dad. Following a very similar pretext to its predecessor, How I Met Your Dad is set to be told from the mother’s point of view, re-telling the story of how she met her children’s father. We get that it's a very clever concept, but surely once it's been done, it's been done? Next thing someone will be rewriting Breaking Bad with a female English teacher lead, with a young Jessica Pinkman helping her mass produce some kind of pink crystally drug. Or even just combine the two shows into one: How I Met Your Breaking Bad.
When Harry Met Sally actress Meg Ryan will lend her voice to Sally AKA the mother
In the original series of HIMYM, which recently ended, Bob Saget provided the voice of the father. Ryan’s role will allegedly mirror Saget’s, meaning that each week we will hear her character Sally recount a story which led her to eventually meeting the father of her children. Despite lending his voice to How I Met Your Mother, Saget himself never actually appeared on the show. The role of Ted was instead played by Josh Radnor, who was the ‘father’ right up until the final episode of the series.
