Maryanna Hoggartt - Fantastic Mr Fox

There couldn’t be a better time for Spoke Art to launch its fourth annual tribute to the films of Wes Anderson. The director is fresh in the public’s mind thanks to an amazing new trailer for his new film, as well as interesting new behind the scenes videos, and a hilarious new parody of his work. Now it’s time for Bad Dads.

Over 100 artists from around the world have once again created brand new art inspired by the growing oeuvre of writer/director Wes Anderson. This year, the show opens with a costume party on November 1 and 2 followed by a triple feature of three Anderson films: Bottle Rocket, The Royal Tenenbaums and his most recent release, Moonrise Kingdom, on November 3.

Below, check out a small sampling of work in the San Francisco based show and all the particulars. Read More »

SNL Wes Anderson

Saturday Night Live doesn’t have a reputation for lampooning independent filmmakers too often, but they do love jumping onto a good meme and Wes Anderson parodies have definitely reached “meme” level. Leave it to the legendary sketch comedy show, though, to use their considerable resources to make the Wes Anderson parody to end all Wes Anderson parodies.

It’s called The Midnight Coterie of Sinister Intruders and stars Edward Norton (himself a star of Moonrise Kingdom) as Owen Wilson (Anderson’s frequent co-star and co-writer) in a horror story that also “features” Anderson players like Adrien Brody, Alec Baldwin, Anjelica Huston, Jason Schwartzman and many others. Some even as themselves. Check it out below. Read More »

Moonrise Kingdom

Earlier this month, we wrote about Matt Zoller Seitz‘s new book The Wes Anderson Collection, a book examining the work of writer/director Wes Anderson. The Pulitzer Prize finalist has been following Anderson’s career since the very beginning, and has teamed up with editor Steven Santos to bring the book to the web in a documentary/video essay format. A couple weeks back we posted the first two chapters, on Bottle Rocket and Rushmore. Last week we featured The Royal Tenenbaums and The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou. Matt has now released Chapter 5 and 6 which cover The Darjeeling Limited and Moonrise Kingdom. Both are online and available to view after the jump.

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. Read More »
