Trailer: Wes Anderson’s All-Star “Budapest Hotel” Film Set for March 7, 2014


Wes Anderson is releasing his “Grand Budapest Hotel” at just the right time: March 7, 2014. That’s five days after the Oscars, about which some websites already know the winners. We will by then be overdosed with the Oscar movies and ready for something clever. Enter Wes Anderson, whose “Moonrise Kingdom” was nominated for Best Picture.

And look at this cast: Ralph Fiennes, Tony Revolori, F. Murray Abraham, Mathieu Amalric, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Jude Law, Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Saoirse Ronan, Jason Schwartzman, Tilda Swinton, Tom Wilkinson, and Owen Wilson. I don’t know who Tony Revolori is, or why he’s out of alphabetical order in the press release, but I included him anyway.
