Of all the highly anticipated films hitting theaters in 2014, Wes Anderson‘s The Grand Budapest Hotel is one of the first to arrive. Scheduled for release March 7, the film follows the adventures of a concierge (Ralph Fiennes) and lobby boy (Tony Revolori) at a huge European hotel between World War I and World War II. The cast is impressive as always (Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Jason Schwartzman, Jude Law, Tilda Swinton, Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody, Edward Norton, Saoirse Ronan) and as fantastic as the trailer was, two clips from the film are now out. Each is not only filled with the classic Wes Anderson tropes, but a real sense of energy and urgency. Check them out below. Read More »

We just saw a new poster for The Grand Budapest Hotel, from Wes Anderson, and that image featured portraits of the individuals in the huge ensemble cast. Now there’s a new trailer, and it is all about introducing the characters played by the whole bunch.
Along the way, we get a better outline of how the film fits together, starting from the point where F. Murray Abraham, seemingly as an older version of the young Zero Moustafa (Tony Revolori), narrates his story to the young writer played by Jude Law. There’s so much here: Harvey Keitel’s prison tattoos, Jeff Goldblum channeling J.K. Simmons’ character from Burn After Reading, and Tilda Swinton swaddled in old-age makeup, for starters.
It looks like a screwy comedy, with everyone having a hell of a time, but there are shadows of more serious events here, too. And, for everything that’s in this trailer, it doesn’t seem to give too much away. Read More »
Any “most anticipated of 2014″ lists we run here will likely feature Wes Anderson‘s The Grand Budapest Hotel, which opens in March of next year. Anticipation comes not just based on the fact of a new Anderson movie, but the ensemble cast that always comes with such an endeavor.
This time, it’s Ralph Fiennes, Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, Tilda Swinton, Edward Norton, and Saoirse Ronan, for starters, who will wear the meticulously designed, Anderson-approved costumes. You can see them all in a new poster below, in advance of a new trailer tomorrow (Thursday, Dec 19). Read More »

Jude Law is a pretty, pretty man, and (like many actors) he’s enjoyed a long, healthy career in part by capitalizing on this fact. But in Dom Hemingway, he’s nothing like the handsome, elegant presence we’ve come to expect. Instead, he looks bleary and bloated and altogether slimy, and his performance looks all the more entertaining for it.
Directed by Richard Shepard, the British crime dramedy stars Law as a loud, lewd safecracker just coming off of a twelve-year stint in prison. He reunites with his BFF (Richard E. Grant) to try to get his life back on track, which means trying to collect what he’s owed from his boss (Demián Bichir) and mending his relationship with his daughter (Emilia Clarke). Check out the newest red-band trailer after the jump.

Warner Bros. is the lucky studio behind three Lord of Rings movies and another three Hobbit films, but Fox Searchlight will be the one who finally brings the genius behind those fantasy epics to the big screen. And no, I don’t mean Peter Jackson.
The studio has just set David Gleeson to script a biopic of author J.R.R. Tolkien, which for now is simply being called Tolkien. Peter Chernin (The Heat) will produce. Hit the jump for more details on the project.
