First ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ Clip Offers Ralph Fiennes in Wes Anderson Mode
In the first clip for 'The Grand Budapest Hotel,' it's readily apparent that Ralph Fiennes' concierge fits in nicely with many of writer/director Wes Anderson's other protagonists. As he conducts an interview with a new hire, he rattles off instructions at a clip that would make Max Fisher jealous.
Going by this one minute clip, it definitely feels Anderson-y, and after the pivot-point of 2012's Moonrise Kingdom,’ we can't wait to see what comes next. Fortunately we won't have to wait too long. The film stars stars Ralph Fiennes, along with 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.
‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ will open its doors on March 7, 2014. Here's the film's synopsis:
‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ tells of a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars and his friendship with a young employee who becomes his trusted protégé.
The story 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.
