Fox Searchlight Pictures has released the first trailer for Wes Anderson‘s The Grand Budapest Hotel. The comedy-drama centers on a hotel concierge recounting events in one of 20 Century Europe’s most prestigious hotels.
The trailer is lighthearted and full of all kinds of quirky humor that we should all be accustomed to when watching a Wes Anderson film. And that is not a bad thing, because we get to see Ralph Fiennes in a rare comedic role. Hit the jump to see the full trailer.
The film also stars the usual Anderson suspects as well as a couple of fresh faces new to the Anderson world, with Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Jude Law, Harvey Keitel, Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Saoirse Ronan, Jason Schwartzman, Tilda Swinton, Tom Wilkinson, Owen Wilson, F. Murray Abraham, Mathieu Amalric, Lea Seydoux, and Tony Revolori all appearing.
THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL recounts the adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa, 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 — all against the back-drop of a suddenly and dramatically changing Continent.
The Grand Budapest Hotel opens March 7, 2014.
