If there was ever any question whether director Wes Anderson’s next film, The Grand Budapest Hotel, would look like a Wes Anderson film, those doubts are hereby assuaged.
As the trailer for the upcoming picture shows, Hotel bears the filmmaker’s signature: meticulously detailed sets and costumes, a cast of his regulars and rose-colored nostalgia for something that never quite existed in the first place. It’s the story of a concierge at the eponymous hotel (Gustave H, played by Ralph Fiennes) who takes a young lobby boy under his wing.
The film also stars Saoirse Ronan, Edward Norton, Willem Dafoe, Jude Law, Owen Wilson, Léa Seydoux (of Blue is the Warmest Color), Bill Murray, Adrien Brody, Tilda Swinton, Jeff Goldbum, Jason Schwartzman, F. Murray Abraham and Harvey Keitel.
The Grand Budapest Hotel checks into theaters March 7, 2014.
