I’ve been a Wes Anderson fan for as long as I can remember. The first film that I saw from him was Rushmore, and I’ve followed his career since then. The only film I don’t like by him is Steve Zissou, and I know I’m in the minority for that. He’s newest film, The Grand Budapest Hotel looks pretty great though. It’s the first of his films that’s written solely from Anderson. All of his other movies have had collaborations with the likes of: Owen Wilson, Roman Coppola, and others.
Budapest takes place during the early 20th-century in Hungary and involves Ralph Fiennes character of a legendary concierge. Check out the plot, poster, and first trailer from the film below!
The Grand Budapest Hotel recounts the adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. The story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting and the battle for an enormous family fortune — all against the back-drop of a suddenly and dramatically changing Continent.
The film also stars Saoirse Ronan, F. Murray Abraham, Edward Norton, Mathieu Amalric, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Lea Seydoux, Jeff Goldblum, Jason Schwarztman, Jude Law, Tilda Swinton, Harvey Keitel, Tom Wilkinson, Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, and Tony Revolori. The Grand Budapest Hotel opens in theaters on March 7th, 2014.
