The Grand Budapest Hotel has already opened in theaters and even set a box office record. But it’s set to expand into even more markets over the next few weeks, so Fox Searchlight is giving the picture a marketing boost with a new red band trailer.
Now, this is still Wes Anderson we’re talking about, so as red-band trailers go it’s not so scandalous. There’s some cursing, a bit of nudity, and a brief glimpse of fellatio, and that’s about it in terms of objectionable material. Still, if you haven’t seen this movie yet, the promo will offer some new footage. Watch it after the jump.
Yahoo posted the revealing Grand Budapest Hotel red band trailer.
The bad words and sex jokes are fun, but the trailer does an even better job of highlighting The Grand Budapest Hotel‘s most appealing element: Ralph Fiennes‘ singular hotel concierge Gustave H. He’s witty, elegant, hyper-competent, and a bit vain, and he’s one of Anderson’s most lovable creations ever.
