Apologies for the slow week on the blog all. The day job has been hectic and I have had my old man around helping me do some work on the house as well.
Back in time for a weekend trailer as always. A new Wes Anderson film is always anticipated by many. I have not always really clicked with his films, but I really loved his most recent Moonrise Kingdom (2012) and as such was keener to see what he came up with next. This trailer makes me very excited indeed for the joys that The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) may well hold for us. For starters there is the cast which I was going to list but it’s too long. Think of a cool actor and then just assume they are in it. Then there is what appears to be more of Anderson’s schtick, which can be delightful, consisting of a whimsical tone, incredible design (4:3 aspect ration anyone?) and shots composed down to the most minute of details. I think Anderson’s films work the best when there is a solid narrative drive to them and it looks like this one has a reasonable level of plot to keep things moving along.
So all in all, I massively excited for this one. How about you guys? Also, what are your favourite films of Anderson’s? I need to go back and explore some of his earlier stuff.

Nice pick man. I too look forward to this tremendously. The 4:3 aspect ratio seems freaking awesome, can’t wait to see it on the big screen. M.K. is really up there for me, but I always find some reason to go back to certain scenes of The Life Aquatic
Cheers for commenting man. The Life Aquatic is one I have been meaning to catch for a long time. For some reason, I really like the looks of that one.
I’m a fan of Wes Anderson, and as you say, the cast is full of cool actors. Really looking forward to this and hope it’s a hit. 🙂
Same Cindy. I am sure this will find a decent sized audience.
I cannot wait to see this flick! I love the trailer.
Same man. Much anticipated from me.
This looks positively bizarre but in a good way. Can’t wait to see this next Thursday 😀
Lucky you getting to see it so soon!
I wasn’t the biggest fan of Moonrise Kingdom, but I LOVE Anderson’s ‘The Royal Tenenbaums’, ‘Fantastic Mr. Fox’ and ‘The Darjeeling Limited’. I think Budapest will be his best one yet. The cast is just amazing and I’m really digging this trailer. Besides, I don’t know why he decided to include that, but I love the fact that Saoirse Ronan’s character has a birthmark on her face in the shape of Mexico: http://p1.trrsf.com/image/fget/cf/619/464/images.terra.com/2013/10/18/saoirseonan-thegrandbudapesthotel-american-empirical-pictures3.jpg
Wow, I didn’t recognise that was the shape. How delightfully random.
I know! And I’d like to know why Wes chose that. It’s pretty cool.
