WATCH: Trailer hits for The Grand Budapest Hotel, Wes Anderson’s new movie

October 17th, 2013 by Marc Comments

Ok, I know Wes Anderson’s movies don’t strictly fall under our umbrella, but i’m such a big fan of his – seriously, The Life Aquatic is damned near perfect – that I had to share this trailer.

Anderson’s new movie, The Grand Budapest Hotel, opens on March 7th next year and looks, well, fantastic. It brought a smile to my face, so I thought for that reason alone it was worth a share…

Press release:

The Grand Budapest Hotel is released by Fox Searchlight Pictures and is written and directed by Anderson with a story by Anderson and Hugo Guinness, The Grand Budapest Hotel’s ensemble cast includes Ralph Fiennes, Tony Revolori, F. Murray Abraham, Mathieu Amalric, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Jude Law, Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Saoirse Ronan and Jason Schwartzman, Tilda Swinton, Tom Wilkinson and Owen Wilson.

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.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
