It looks like Wes Anderson‘s animated adaptation of Fantastic Mr. Fox will actually be released under Fox’s Fox Searchlight “indie”-focused label. The film has recently test screened with the Fox Searchlight titlecard in front of the print. What does this mean? It could mean that Fox doesn’t have enough faith in the film financially to release it under the 20th Century Fox banner. On the other hand, Searchlight has a great track record of quality films and great marketing, while many would say the complete opposite about their big brother, 20th Century Fox.
