After yesterday’s new poster for Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel offered images of the various oddball characters in the film (see it lower down the page), here comes a brand new trailer that does something similar using footage. And it’s as quirky as you could possibly wish.
The Grand Budapest Hotel’s 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.
There’s mystery, crime, danger, laughter and, of course, a whole lot of weirdness to be found lurking within, all swirling around a none-more-Andersonian cast including Willem Dafoe, Edward Norton, Owen Wilson, Jeff Goldblum, Jason Schwartzman, Saoirse Ronan, F. Murray Abraham, Jude Law, Harvey Keitel, Tom Wilkinson, Lea Seydoux and Mathieu Amalric. Oh, and Bill Murray, of course. Can’t have Wes leaving out his good luck charm.
Prepare to check in at cinemas on March 7.
