There’s very few filmmakers that I pay attention to, and Wes Anderson is one of them. The eccentric filmmaker has a very bold and distinct style about each one of his movies, and a bit of himself is sprinkled into each one whether it be through his sharp directing style or the comedy sprinkled in, not to mention the wonderful cast of characters that joins in on each film. The Grand Budapest Hotel is another film that I’m marking as a must-watch for 2014, and it shot right up towards the top of my list after watching the first official trailer.
The Grand Budapest Hotel centers on the slightly mysterious hotel owner who recounts his life working at the establishment through a series of crazy events. The main thing that this trailer shows off is the incredible cast of characters, which in some ways is one of the many staples of a Wes Anderson film. You have a couple of the regular actors popping up in the movie, including the likes of Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, Jason Schwarztman, Owen Wilson and some other fantastic actors such as Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, Jude Law and Harvey Keitel.
So when can I buy my movie ticket? Unfortunately I can’t do that just yet, but The Grand Budapest Hotel is due out in theaters everywhere on March 7, 2014. Check out the first official trailer below and let us know what you think.
Will you see The Grand Budapest Hotel on its opening weekend?
