Can 'Fantastic Mr. Fox' challenge 'Up'?

They’re both boundary-pushing animated films. They both play equally well to kids and adults. And they both scored in the 90s on Rotten Tomatoes. So if there’s any movie can give Up a run for its money in the Best Animated Feature category, could it be Fantastic Mr. Fox? One crucial test for Wes Anderson’s adaptation of Roald Dahl’s book is its box office performance once it expands beyond New York and Los Angeles. In advance of its wide release tomorrow, I gathered Anderson and three of his cast members (Meryl Streep, Jason Schwartzman, and Bill Murray) for a spirited interview about their experiences doing the voices for the film and what it’s like to watch children watch it.
