The Grand Budapest Hotel, already one of the most anticipated films of 2014, has finally released its long-awaited trailer. The Grand Budapest Hotel is the latest film from Wes Anderson, a big fan favorite. Anderson is known for reusing his favorite actors, and has gained a reputation for it, with this film being no different.
Wes Anderson‘s last film, Moonrise Kingdom was a huge hit, and was even nominated for Best Picture. Moonrise Kingdom also earned Anderson a nomination for Best Original Screenplay. In addition to his 2012 hit, he is very well-known as a director for his work on Rushmore, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, and The Royal Tenenbaums, among others.
The new film is filled with an unbelievable amount of stars, including several of Anderson’s regulars including Bill Murray, Owen Wilson and Jason Schwartzman. This film also brings in several new actors that he has not used before such as Saoirse Ronan, Willem Dafoe, Jude Law and Harvey Keitel.
New Wes Anderson film is called “Grand Budapest Hotel.” Odd; that sounds sprawling, ornate & emotionally forbidding.
