The Grand Budapest Hotel Trailer Is Here
Welcome to the most Wes Anderson-y place ever

Welcome to the most Wes Anderson film ever. The Grand Budapest Hotel trailer is here, and the only way it could be more comprehensively inclusive of the director's style is if there were a stop-motion fox in the mix somewhere. Let's check off the trademarks: we have hyper-saturated colour, characters standing dead centre of the frame, gorgeous stylised environments, blandly outrageous statements, great humour, odd hairstyles and a sense of borderline farce. Oh, and Bill Murray. Where do we sign up?

This trailer makes it clear that the story revolves around Ralph Fiennes' Gustave H, hotel manager and serial guest lover. His travails appear to begin when a deceased client of a certain age (Tilda Swinton) turns up dead in the hotel and leaves him a valuable painting in her will - much to the distress of Adrien Brody's Dmitri.

Many Anderson regulars return, including good luck charm Bill Murray, Willem Dafoe, Edward Norton, Owen Wilson, Jeff Goldblum and Jason Schwartzman. Also joining the cast are Jeff Goldblum, Saoirse Ronan, F. Murray Abraham, Jude Law, Harvey Keitel, Tom Wilkinson, Lea Seydoux and Mathieu Amalric.

With what looks like a great comic turn from Fiennes as the somewhat fussy, conceited hotel manager, we're frankly pretty impressed by this one. The Grand Budapest Hotel will hit cinemas early next year, we're guessing, although there's no confirmed date just yet.

Looks interesting. But then again, EVERY Wes Anderson film look's interesting. It looks a bit to serious if I say. Also, This doesn't look like Moonrise Kingdom, which is his best film to date. But will see... More

There may not be an animated fox in it, but i think there are some moments that look like they could almost be lifted straight from fantastic mr fox - Willem Defoe on the motorbike for example. I think it looks brilliant. Can't ruddy wait. More

Brilliant
Think Ralph Fiennes is about as Wes Andersonny an actor as they come too. I also love Willem Dafoe turning around after punching the lobby boy. Just hope its not all the best bits. More
