Summer TV schedules aren’t that great, but it is a great time for Digital releases. If you are in the mood for an animated-adventure this summer, FOX is set to release “Isle of Dogs” on Digital platforms by the end of the month. The retail release of the film is scheduled just a few weeks after, and both versions should help you get through a summer weekend if you’re trapped inside. The official release for the Digital HD version of “Isle of Dogs” is June 26th, the Blu-ray and DVD versions will release on July 17th.
You can pre-order the Digital HD versions of the film on iTunes, Amazon Video, and Google Play, the retail versions are available on sites like Amazon.com. With all of the summer traveling and long weekend coming up, it’s probably a good idea to have a few digital releases on-hand to help pass the time.
If you missed “Isle of Dogs” in theaters, the film was directed by Wes Anderson and tells the story Atari Kobayashi, a 12-year-old ward to corrupt Mayor Kobayashi. When all the canine pets of Megasaki City are exiled to vast Trash Island, Atari sets off in search of his bodyguard dog, Spots. With the assistance of his newfound mongrel friends, he begins an epic journey that will decide the fate and future of the entire Prefecture. The film features an all-star cast voicing the dog and human characters including Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Bob Balaban, Jeff Goldblum, Scarlett Johansson, and Frances McDormand.
The film had a limited opening earlier this year, bringing in $1.6M at just 27 theaters. The film then opened nationwide just a few weeks later and grossed over 5.4M on opening weekend. “Isle of Dogs” made over $31.4M domestically for the studio, and over $59M worldwide.
