Expectations are high for Wes Anderson’s Friday release of FANTASTIC MR. FOX. At last night’s Q&A at the 92nd Street Y in Tribeca, neither Anderson nor Jason Schwartzman brought up the critically indecisive response THE DARJEELING LIMITED received two years ago, but why would they with a promising new film due out in mere days? Moderator Dave Karger from Entertainment Weekly Magazine (I heard they tried to get Richard Brody, who recently profiled Anderson for The New Yorker) was certainly comfortable in front of a crowd, but his questions hardly brought up anything Anderson fans didn’t already know, like the charming but much-visited story of how Shwartzman and Anderson met at a RUSHMORE audition.
