The trailer for Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel has everything you expect

Oct. 17, 2013by: Paul Shirey

Wes Anderson fans will no doubt be satisfied with the first trailer for THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL as it is chock full of the director's signature quirky style. Starring many of his familiar rogues, including Jason Schwartzman, Edward Norton, Willem Dafoe, Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody, Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton, and Jeff Goldblum, the film also adds some new faces to Anderson's gallery with F. Murray Abraham, Harvey Keitel, Saoirse Ronan, Jude Law, Tom Wilkinson, and the star of it all, Ralph Fiennes. Another signature cast for what looks like a another solid entry in Anderson's repertoire.

Get your hands off my lobby boy!:

Here's the synopsis:

THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL recounts the adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. The story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting and the battle for an enormous family fortune -- all against the back-drop of a suddenly and dramatically changing Continent.

I'm an unabashed fan of Anderson's, so it's impossible to judge this without already being on board for it. Anderson has a unique style that most naysayers like to call "hipster" or some such shit and that's fine. Anytime you have a style that goes well beyond the norm you're going to face that kind of criticism, which usually creates a love or hate reaction. For me, it's the former, but I'm always curious what those who aren't familiar with Anderson's work feel when seeing something like this.

You can check in to THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL on March 7, 2014.

I am not a fan of Wes Anderson. I have seen all of his movies and have only enjoyed (somewhat) two of them. But this trailer made me laugh more than I have at all of his movies combined. If I am this entertained in a trailer then I am all aboard. Ralph Fiennes seems to be a great fit for his dialogue.

This looks interesting!

Most of his movies are just god awful. I mean just unbearable to sit through. But this one looks like it actually has something to it.

Dauym

That aspect ratio was unexpected! I have enjoyed all of his pictures, but I have rarely felt so enthused to receive them, as I am this. Looks fantastic.

Wow! Another sh*tty Wes Anderson Film! So pumped!!

All his movies are the same quirky art house garbage. There's a reason only 1 of his films has actually made a profit...because no one goes to see them. I was 5 beers in and I still couldn't sit through Life Aquatic.

Hipster? I don't think so. I've always thought of his work as autistic film making. He's very detail oriented, yet his characters all have a certain emotional disconnect, becoming like game pieces he moves around a board. It's a fascinating thing to watch though.

I've loved every Anderson film to date. There's a sense of realism and relatablility to a story, set of characters, and set pieces that seem surreal.

I don't know why, but when watching this trailer, the idea of Wes Anderson directing a reboot of the Addams Family came to my mind.

Good God I am so there

This looks like a fun, crazy, and eccentric ride...typical Wes Anderson. I love the additional talent he got on top of his normal players. I am interested in seeing how Ronan fits into this world since she hasn't really done comedy of this sort.

I barely laugh at trailers but I lost it when Ralph ran from the cops. This looks grand indeed.

Very excited for this. I sometimes forget how good Ralph Fiennes can be in comedy because he can be terrifying in his dramatic work. Anyway, looks like classic Anderson.

So much greatness in this trailer. This looks wonderful and I'm glad we really didn't get to see much of the supporting cast in this. I'd rather wait for the film to actually come out to see what each character looks like and what their personalities are.

And Anderson is one of the best directors working today. Even his weakest film is good.

Aww yis

Motha fuckin Wes Anderson.
Not a fan of Academy, but I'll live.

I don't know if any of his films could warrant a sequel. One of the running things it seems is that the events of the film are the most interesting and eventful part of their lives, and that everything else afterward is inconsequential. Which honestly makes Moonrise Kingdom even sadder, since those kids peaked at 12.

Then again, isn't The Royal Tenenbaums essentially a sequel in that regard?
