There’s never anything better than a Wes Anderson movie trailer. The acclaimed director, and fan of diorama-style framing, is back with his follow-up to the Oscar-nominated Moonrise Kingdom: The Grand Budapest Hotel. It’s a period piece more so than any other film the whimsical storyteller has given us, taking place at a swanky European hotel between the World Wars.
Ralph Fiennes stars as Gustave H., the concierge of the establishment and an incorrigible Lothario, who gets wrapped up in a murder plot when one of his older conquests (a made-up Tilda Swinton) winds up dead. The rest of the cast seems like a who’s who of Anderson players like Owen Wilson, Willem Dafoe, Jason Schwartzman, Jeff Goldblum, Edward Norton, and Bill Murray with the additions of folks like Jude Law, F. Murray Abraham, Harvey Keitel, and Saoirse Ronan.
The movie looks right in the Anderson wheelhouse, which means I’ll probably love it. The film’s set to be released sometime in 2014. What do you think? Do you pick up what Wes is putting down or are you tired of the old song & dance? Let us know in them there comments.
