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.
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.
