The screening for Wes Anderson’s new Isle of Dogs was cute AF. Actors Jeff Goldblum, Tilda Swinton and Liev Schreiber, all of whom lended their voices to the stop-motion animated film, brought along adoptable puppers looking for a home.
The proverbial “Who are you wearing?” was replaced with “Who are you walking?” The red carpet was star-studded and pup-studded with co-stars Courtney B. Vance, Koyu Rankin and Bob Balaban also bringing along dogs available for adoption from Best Friends Animal Society. Schreiber brought along his doggo, Woody, who he adopted with a group of other rescues from Hurricane Harvey, after meeting the pups on Live with Kelly and Ryan. By the way, can we talk about how Jeff Goldblum’s canine plus-one kind of looks like Jeff Goldblum?
The New York City screening was hosted by Paw Prints in partnership with Fox Searchlight Pictures and Best Friends Animal Society. Paw Prints co-founders Lauren Schwartz and Emilie Spiegel said in a statement, “Our mission is to combine our love for film with our passion for animal rescue. When we heard Wes Anderson was making a film about dogs, we knew it’d make for the perfect fundraiser.” Paw Prints hosts a number of screenings like this, with all of the proceeds going towards animal rescue. All of the proceeds from the Isle of Dogs screening will benefit Best Friends Animal Society.
You can see Isle of Dogs on National Puppy Day (March 23).
