Here's the first poster for Wes Anderson's Grand Budapest Hotel; trailer to hit on Thursday?

Oct. 14, 2013by:

The first poster for Wes Anderson's THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL is here, and it's quite lovely. If you didn't know this was a Wes Anderson film, you could tell from looking at this poster because not only does it feature the names of some of his usual collaborators, but the font is also a giveaway for me. It feels like Anderson.

What a grand hotel indeed:

Synopsis:

A famous hotel's legendary concierge strikes up a friendship with a young employee who becomes his trusted protg.

There's word that reportedly the first trailer for the film will drop on Thursday around 10 AM EST. Anderson always throws together a good mix of his usual actors, and adds in new choices to add new character to his tales. I'm kind of excited to see Ralph Fiennes, F. Murray Abraham, and Lea Seydoux share some screen time. Okay, so I'm excited about all of them to share screen time, so sue me.

THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL hits theaters next year.

A lot of people (like bealzf below) give Wes Anderson shit about him making the same film over and over. But... he doesn't! With every new film he tells a beautiful, brilliant and original(!) story, with only 2 similarities; the cinematography, and the universe it takes place in (I don't count recurring actors). Personally, I hope he never changes his style, I look forward to many more decades of his work.
Now excuse me as I put on a retro, brightly coloured bathing suit and attempt to dive

Uhm I don't really agree. There's a lot more similarities, but the main one is the tone of the film. And I also disagree that I was giving the director shit. I clearly state I love some of his films and like others and compliment the man himself. My only real "problem" is what the writer wrote above - that they probably don't have to tell you who's movie it is, you can just look at the poster. And it's cool he's got a style, I've very much liked it so far, but I want to look at a trailer or

I'll never argue or"give him shit" about his talent, but I don't want 15 years or 7ish more films like that. That's certainly not the case with the other Anderson. He has his style, but his films are all tonally different. They may have a similar "epic" ness and "heavyness" to the story, or even Noah Baumbach, who's worked with Anderson, and probably resembles him the most as a filmmaker, but he certainly does different stuff. I'm absolutely not giving him shit, I just want him to try different stuff once or twice

My bad, I didn't really mean to group you in with the shit-givers, especially because you clearly stated your love for his previous work, and you surely didn't give him any excrement whatsoever.
Concerning any other director I would agree with you; the more versatility the better. But for me it's the fact that no one else makes the type of movies that Anderson makes (even if they try they don't close to being as genuine and good) that's why he's the only director who I wish doesn't change his

But for me it's the fact that no one else makes the type of movies that Anderson makes (even if they try they don't close to being as genuine and good) that's why he's the only director who I wish doesn't change his style (too much) over the years. Hell, I would love for him to make a few sidesteps and try something different, especially genre wise. How cool would a Wes Anderson crime film be? I'm sure, just like Woody Allen with Cassandra's Dream, it's fully in his capability to direct any genre. But in the end it's just a personal thing that I desire more of the "same". Unlike, say, Tarantino, who's my favourite director; from him I want to see as much as versatility as possible.

Hmmm

I have absolutely loved some of Anderson's films in the past (royal tennenbaums, life aquatic), but after his last film, which I still enjoyed, I wonder how long he can continue to make the same type of film? Yes he's very talented and very funny, but I don't think I want to watch 15-20 more years of these films from him. This film might be different, who knows, but if not I hope he branches out soon.

One of my favorite directors

Unlike Malick, Anderson doesn't let himself become too self-indulgent when it comes to creating something normally defined as "art house". His films are beautifully shot, wonderfully cast, and the dialogue is always witty with underlining sarcasm and cruelty. I will be there opening night!

All you needed was Wes Anderson and movie, and I'd atleast give it a watch.

Love the poster. Possibly his best cast in any of his films so far.

Now I see why it's not filmed in Budapest... Because it doesn't take place in Budapest.
