I can’t say it enough, I LOVE the films by Wes Anderson. And I cannot even begin to tell you HOW stoked I am to learn there’s a new film coming from the iconic director! AND a trailer was released today!
The film in question, The Grand Budapest Hotel, which follows a legendary concierge and his friendship with a young employee, and as with every film, Anderson’s trademark look is seen throughout the trailer. But what is interesting is that the trailer is presented in a fullscreen format? Which, oddly enough, seems to suit the director’s style of filmmaking, and just makes me even more curious how it will play out in the theatre.
But check out the trailer, and first poster for the film after the jump
The Grand Budapest Hotel is written and directed by Wes Anderson (The Royal Tenenbaums, Moonrise Kingdom, Rushmore) and tells of a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars and his friendship with a young employee who becomes his trusted protégé. The story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting, the battle for an enormous family fortune and the slow and then sudden upheavals that transformed Europe during the first half of the 20th century. Fox Searchlight will release The Grand Budapest Hotel starting March 7th, 2014 early next year.
