Wes Anderson has done it again and produced what could be his finest film yet – THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL.
Oh, how I love Wes Anderson! The incredibly brilliant writer/director creates gorgeous comedies that also, at times, touch your heart. His last movie Moonrise Kingdom was one of my absolute favourites of 2012 but on the strength of this glorious first trailer, he’s surpassed even that with his new film THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL.
Set between the wars, somewhere in glamorous Europe, it’s about the legendary concierge of the Crown Budapest, a certain Gustave H and his adventures involving the guests he so diligently looks after. All of this is observed by the lobby boy Zero Moustafa, who becomes his friend and just a tiny bit caught up in those adventures. It opens in the US in March 2014 but doesn’t have a UK release date as yet. Come on, somebody. Sort it out. It’s going to be a gem!
But one last thing to note before you watch the trailer, just read the cast list of who’s in it!!! Take a deep breath…
Ralph Fiennes, Adrien Brody, Tilda Swinton, Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, Willem Dafoe, Edward Norton, Saoirse Ronan, Jude Law, Lea Seydoux, Jason Schwartzman, Harvey Keitel, Bob Balaban, Mathieu Amalric, Jeff Goldblum, Tom Wilkinson, F. Murray Abraham and introducing new star in the making, Tony Revolori.
Got that? Now enjoy!
