It’s rare that a trailer has me grinning and cracking up throughout the entire two-and-a-half minute running time. Wes Anderson’s trademark brand of deadpan absurdity is back, and appears to be cranked up to eleven.[youtube.com/watch?v=2bTbW70umbQ]
As is evident in this trailer, Wes Anderson tends to cast his films like plays, filling the proverbial stage to bursting with a wildly varied ensemble of characters that add color and spice to the tale. The Grand Budapest Hotel, which comes out in March of 2014, will feature some recurring Andersonian actors: Jason Schwartzman, Owen Wilson, Willem Dafoe, and of course, Bill Murray.
I can already tell Ralph Fiennes is going to be a riot as Gustave H., and I can’t wait to see how newcomer Tony Revolori fares among such a star-studded cast.
