Trailer Analysis: The Grand Budapest Hotel

Wes Anderson was one of the many directors mentioned during this week’s question about the best current filmmakers.  He certainly is one of the brightest people in contemporary cinema (Rushmore is a top five comedy for myself).  His newest movie, The Grand Budapest Hotel, looks like another gem from the director.

Filmed in full screen with new and colorful sets, The Grand Budapest Hotel has hints of Rushmore and Bottle Rocket through its mentor-student center and crime premise, though it seems as expansive as Anderson’s newer movies.  With a big cast including Ralph Fiennes, Bill Murray, Edward Norton, F. Murray Abraham, Jeff Goldblum, Jason Schwartzman, Saoirse Ronan, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Jude Law, Tilda Swinton, Harvey Keitel, Tom Wilkinson, Lea Seydoux, and Owen Wilson, Anderson has cemented himself as a master of ensemble comedies.  The Grand Budapest Hotel comes out next year.


  1. So much PURPLE! Color-wise, it’s complementary to the overall yellowish tint from Moonrise Kingdom.

    • Thanks for the comment. The color does look amazing.

  2. Really looking forward to this movie. I love Anderson’s recent stuff from Darjeeling Limited onward.

    • Thanks for the comment. Anderson can do no wrong in my opinion.

  3. Very whimsical, but something still tells me it’s going to be a bunch of fun, quite like Moonrise Kingdom was.

    • Thanks for the comment. Definitely has the same feel as Moonrise, I can’t wait to see it.

  4. I’m really excited for this! Anderson can get annoying (for me) if I watch a bunch of his films at once, but when they’re spaced out I appreciate them a lot more. Loved Moonrise Kingdom and been excited for this for a while; the trailer just confirmed it.

    • Thanks for the comment. I’m a huge fan of Wes and this looks great so far.

  5. Yeah, this movie just looks lovely. Looking forward to it. 🙂

    • Thanks for the comment. I agree.

  6. Like! Like! Like!

    • *Thumbs up*

  7. I sometimes think I’m getting tired of Wes Anderson’s unusual style, but this trailer is so fantastic. I can’t wait to see the finished movie.

    • Yeah, I can’t wait either. Looks really great.
