I don’t care who you are — if Bill Murray skids his car to a stop right in front of you and demands that you “get in,” just do as the guy says. That goes double if you happen to be a hotel concierge and a lobby boy on the run, like the ones played by Ralph Fiennes and Tony Revolori in The Grand Budapest Hotel.
That’s the basic gist of this latest clip from the movie, which looks super Wes Anderson-y in all the right ways: pretty and precise, with a sly sense of humor. Hit the jump to see it for yourself.

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 »
The movies of 2013 were great and we’re all anxiously anticipating 2015, but let’s not overlook 2014. While the upcoming calendar isn’t packed as full of blockbusters that make film fans salivate, 2014 has some pretty awesome looking movies from several of the best filmmakers in the world. It has its share of massive franchise films too and while maybe they’re not Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Terminator or Batman fighting Superman, I’ll take Christopher Nolan, Paul Thomas Anderson, Cameron Crowe, Wes Anderson, the Wachowksis and David Fincher any day.
Below, read my top ten anticipated films of 2014. 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 »
