discuss: the grand budapest hotel trailer
wes anderson's latest film is a very fashionable murder mystery.
The film stars Anderson regulars like Bill Murray, Adrien Brody, Owen Wilson, Jason Schwatrzman, Jeff Goldblum, Tilda Swinton, Edward Norton, and Willem Dafoe, as well as newbies to Anderson's flicks like Saoirse Ronan, Jude Law, Lea Seydoux, Ralph Fiennes, and Tony Revolori as the film's protagonist. Set in a hotel in run by Fiennes, the film kicks into gear when a very wealthy, and very old client, played by Tilda Swinton, is found dead and Fiennes' character is accused of the crime. He attempts to avoid prosecution while training his newest employee, played by Revolori, who happens to be in love with a young hotel guest, played by Ronan.
Astute Anderson fans (or obsessive readers of The Wes Anderson Collection book) will know that the writer/director's love affair with hotels is longstanding--from Bottle Rocket to the Royal Tenenbaums to The Darjeeling Limited, the temporary home a hotel provides has been a constant centerpiece of Anderson's films. This one, though, seems to be the craziest hotel yet. Watch the trailer below while you wait for the March 7, 2014 release, and tell us your reactions on Facebook or Twitter.
