It's a dog-eat-dog world out there, and nowhere more than in Wes Anderson's latest film.

Isle of Dogs is Anderson's first stop-motion feature since 2009's Fantastic Mr. Fox. In it, Japan's flu-ridden dogs have been quarantined on an island and left to fend for themselves.

The first clip has just been released, and features the rough pooch Rex (Edward Norton) and his buddies as they duke it out with a pack of poodles over some rotten food scraps.

The all-star cast also includes Frances McDormand, Scarlett Johansson, Greta Gerwig, Bryan Cranston, Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton, Jeff Goldblum, Liev Schreiber, Harvey Keitel and many more.

The film premieres at the Berlin Film Festival February 15; its North American release is March 23.
