Premiering at the opening night of the 2014 Berlin Film Festival Wes Anderson’s Grand Budapest Hotel just got a new poster and trailer. Both of which are emphasizing the amazing cast of characters. So who’s going to be in this soon to be Criterion? Let me give you the entire list: Ralph Fiennes, F. Murray Abraham, Mathieu Amalbic, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Harvey Keitel, Jude Law, Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Saorise Ronan, Jason Schwartzman, Léa Seydoux, Tilda Swinton, Tom Wilkinson, Owen Wilson and newcomer Tony Revolori. Try to top that.
Aside from that, the new trailer (check out the “old” one in case you missed it) teases the story a little bit. It almost feels like a period crime, drama, thriller. The visuals are fantastic. Loving the 4:3 aspect ratio, really makes it feel like the 1920s. The new poster is pretty nifty in its own right. It’s simple and self-explanatory, but that’s exactly the beauty of it. I like that everyone has crazy hair in this. Oh, and Tilda Swinton looks really old and Harvey Keitel looks like that crazy guy from Lost, but with tattoos. So good. The film comes out on March 7th, 2014. Anyone else as excited as yours truly?
