Wow! Way to strike while the iron’s hot. Just a couple days ago we got a first poster for Wes Anderson‘s new film The Grand Budapest Hotel and now here comes the first official trailer. It is spectacular. Funny, beautiful and full of action, just like my ladies (just kidding). It seems like Wes has shot this in full frame (4:3 aspect ratio), which is how films were presented back in the 1920s, where the film is set. This trailer could be considered “spoiler-y” so I won’t go into any plot details. It is a very fast-cut trailer, which shows a lot scenes and sets and characters (hey, with a cast like that I would too).
The film basically about a hotel concierge (Ralph Fiennes) and his friendship with a lobby boy (Tony Revolori) who becomes his protégée. Like all of Anderson’s films I’m sure there will be themes of surrogate family, bourgeois living and romance. Personally, I am very excited for this film and I can’t wait to see it. However I will avoid any further trailers, because they could spoil too much, this one is more than enough to get me excited. On an odd note: Johnny Depp was supposed to be playing the lead role (now taken over by Ralph Fiennes) and looking at this trailer I am so glad he’s not.
The film will be released on March 7th, 2014 in the States. Anyone else looking forward to this?
