I don’t usually like Wes Anderson much, but for some reason, I really like this trailer.October 17, 2013 at 9:19 am #114879
This sounds like it will show at Berlin and/or Sundance (if the latter, most likely it doesn’t compete at Berlin, since they prefer world premieres in their main section – with all the European PR value of Berlin, they might choose not to go to Sundance, but then they lose a lot of US PR value).October 17, 2013 at 9:19 am #114880
The Royal Tenenbaums remains his best movie.October 17, 2013 at 9:39 am #114881
I’m a big Wes Anderson fan, and this looks great! I can’t wait.
My favorites of his include:
‘The Royal Tenenbaums’
‘Fantastic Mr. Fox’
I love those four, and like the rest. I still think ‘The Royal Tenenbaums’ is his best, and ‘Fantastic Mr. Fox’ is a close second.October 17, 2013 at 10:08 am #114882
For me, his best 3 films are Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, and Moonrise Kingdom. Though I like all of them for one reason or another.
I can’t wait for this. I wasn’t expecting it to be so humorous. It looks like it might be his funniest film since Rushmore. And Ralph Fiennes looks like he’s having a blast in the lead role.October 17, 2013 at 3:33 pm #114883
I am a huge Wes Anderson fan. Fantastic Mr. Fox was in my Top 10 Favourite Films of 2009, and Moonrise Kingdom was #3 Favourite of last year.
The trailer is so awesome. I cannot wait for this film.October 17, 2013 at 4:09 pm #114884
^’Fantastic Mr. Fox’ was in my Top 10 of 2009 as well. I had it at #5 I believe.October 17, 2013 at 5:19 pm #114885
Loved this trailer. Ralph Fiennes could be a major contender for actor.October 17, 2013 at 5:21 pm #114886
I can see him getting the Golden Globe Comedy/Musical.October 17, 2013 at 5:24 pm #114887
The punching scene completely won me over.
Ralph Fiennes and Julianne Moore for Actor and Actress 2014!October 18, 2013 at 4:33 pm #114888
This looks amazing! Can’t wait!!!October 20, 2013 at 5:38 am #114889
Could Ralph Fiennes legitimately win Best Actor for this? I would love thatNovember 5, 2013 at 5:02 am #114890

By NANCY TARTAGLIONE, International Editor | Tuesday, 5 November 2013
Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel will debut as the opening night film of the Berlin Film Festival on February 6, 2014. Anderson returns to the festival with this world premiere after his The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou and The Royal Tennenbaums ran there in competition in 2005 and 2002, respectively. Anderson shot Budapest Hotel,
a UK-German co-production, in Gorlitz, Germany and other parts of
Saxony, as well as at Studio Babelsberg in Potsdam. Berlin chief Dieter
Kosslick said today, “We are very delighted… With unmistakeable Wes
Anderson charm, this comedy promises to kick things off in a big way.”
The film recounts the adventures of a legendary concierge at a famous
European hotel between the wars, and 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.
Ralph Fiennes and Tony Revolori star with F Murray Abraham, Mathieu
Amalric, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Harvey Keitel, Jude
Law, Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Saoirse Ronan, Jason Schwartzman, Tilda
Swinton, Léa Seydoux, Tom Wilkinson and Owen Wilson. Fox Searchlight
