Watch: Wes Anderson's 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' Trailer Arrives
"Take your hands off my lobby boy!" The first trailer for The Grand Budapest Hotel is here, and it's definitely a Wes Anderson movie, though there is one noticeable difference. It looks like the director has chosen to shoot this film in full frame, (though the casting call at the end shows that might fluctuate). Now we have story details with the film following the adventures of Gustave H (Ralph Fiennes), a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. Gustave H loves older women, especially the nearly unrecognizable Tilda Swinton in some great make-up. Plus, Willem Dafoe, Adrien Brody and Edward Norton get time to shine. Watch!
Here's the first trailer for Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel, originally from Fox Searchlight:
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. Are you excited now?
