Wes Anderson's upcoming movie, The Grand Budapest Hotel, is set to premiere in two months and being lovers of Anderson's films and hotels, we're obviously very excited for this debut. But now we've just stumbled across two clips from the movie on ContactMusic.com and we're even more intrigued.
The premise of the move is about Gustave, a concierge in a legendary hotel in 1920s Europe, played by Ralph Fiennes. He embarks on a friendship with a Lobby Boy, named Zero, who eventually becomes his protege. The movie also involves "the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting, the battle for an enormous family fortune and the slow and then sudden upheavals that transformed Europe during the first half of the 20th century." There's also a murder, as you can tell from the second clip below.
Aside from Fiennes and Edward Norton, more bonafide stars are expected to check-into the hotel, including Owen Wilson, Tilda Swinton, Jude Law, Bill Murray, Adrien Brody, Harvey Keitel, Jason Schwartzman, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Saoirse Ronan, Tom Wilkinson, Mathieu Amalric, F Murray Abraham, and Bob Balaban.
The film is pure Wes Anderson all the way--quirky yet stylish and a bit of perfectionist when it comes to historical accuracy, at least as far as design and fashion are concerned. And that's what make watching the lobby scenes so thrilling for hotel geeks like us like spotting the "Reception" sign and admiring the staffer uniforms. Although, we're not really sure a hotel put the words "Lobby Boy" on a hat. Did they?
