Every so often, we find ourselves spiraling from information overload. Gone are the slow news days as we’re now working overtime to keep up with everything going on in the news at all times. Between trying to keep up with the Trump administration’s policies and various legal missteps, Facebook’s massive mishandling of data, and having to prepare for Mercury going back into retrograde, we’re in desperate need of something to cheer us up. And ever the gentleman, Jeff Goldblum is coming through for us.
When the actor is not giving new life to long-running franchises — including those he originated — or selling sausages out of his food truck, Chef Goldblum, he’s generally being the delightfully weird person of our dreams. But now he’s taken things up to a new level. Goldblum, who stars in Wes Anderson’s latest stop-motion venture, Isle of Dogs, recently appeared at a special screening of the film — and posed with a puppy.
The film follows an adolescent boy named Atari, who embarks on an adventure to find his dog after all dogs are banished to an island after a canine flu hits Japan. It features Goldblum as Duke, one of the dogs from the “alpha” pack that accompanies Atari on his mission. But back to that IRL puppy…
Naturally, Jeff Goldblum posing with a puppy means one thing: spectacular photos.
The dog. Jeff Goldblum. The magic!
What have we done to earn something this magical?
He even let his costars and their precious pups pose with him:
Okay, but real talk — we want every single one of these puppies. And all of these photos to be framed.
Just look at Goldblum (likely) eyeing the person telling him he needs to give the pup back:
This looks like the start of a truly beautiful friendship.
Let’s hope ALL Isle of Dogs screenings feature Jeff Goldblum and puppies because we will, no joke, be at every single one of them.
Isle of Dogs opens in theaters on March 23rd.
