What’s better than the first poster for a highly anticipated film? The first poster for a highly anticipated film directed by Wes Anderson. The Grand Budapest Hotel will open for business in 2014, featuring what’s possibly Anderson’s most star-studded cast yet: Ralph Fiennes, Edward Norton, Owen Wilson, Tilda Swinton, Jude Law, Bill Murray, Adrien Brody, Harvey Keitel, Jason Schwartzman, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Saoirse Ronan, Tom Wilkinson, Mathieu Amalric, F. Murray Abraham, Bob Balaban and Tony Revolori, just to name a new. Wow.
But none of them make the poster. Instead, the hotel is the star.
The first trailer for the film will be out on Thursday, but for now check out the poster.
Thanks to the IMDB for the debut.
Here’s an early plot description released for the film. While there was some question if we could get a 2013 release date, the poster and official website say 2014.
The Grand Budapest Hotel 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.
This is one of our most anticipated films of 2014. Would you agree?
