The Grand Budapest Hotel

"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?

    I have no idea whether or not I want to watch this trailer or not. Already know how badly I want to see the film.

      Wish I hadn't. Some major plot details. Appears quite well done. All star cast seems like mostly cameo's. Looks better than Moonrise Kingdom. Go forth & avoid spoilers!
  • Looks yes! And double yessirs!

    Any one else not enjoy Wes Anderson films?

      Oh yes, me me me. I wish someone would have told me years ago that you could make all your scenes visually as flat as a post-a-note, with some quirky dry delivery sputtered by all your actors, and you would gain a rabid following. I would have gone into showbiz. The only movie by WA I sat thru was the Fox one, and of course it was a puppet show, which was perfect for his style. I just don't get him at all.

        Everyone is entitled to there opinion but visually as flat as a post it note? If you said "Not a lot of energy" Or "Very Dry humor" id have said I don't agree but I see where you are coming from, But to say his scenes are flat, is to say you hate Tarantino because of the lack of the dialogue in his films, or Scorsese films lack violence. But I guess if your judging an entire filmography from his animated movie sure, I would guess his movies would lack a lot.

          No, I actually saw Rushmore and suffered through The Life Acquatic..., plus watching long segments of the last one. I don't give opinions about things I haven't seen or experienced, however unpleasant.
  • Hell yes! Look at all that stuff that goes on! Such a fun cast taking on such wild roles. Can't wait!!

    I give it 4.5 fixie bikes out of 5 skinny jeans.

    I never understand all the hipster comments people make when the see Wes Anderson in the title. He makes nice movies with a unique style, don't see how that makes them "hipster".

    yes sire
    Looks so smart.

    “The Grand Budapest Hotel was shot in three different aspect ratios: 1.33, 1.85, and 2.35:1. The movie jumps through three time periods; the different aspect ratios tell viewers where they are in the timeline.” - Excerpt from The Wes Anderson Collection by Matt Zoller Seitz.
