Check out the first trailer for The Grand Budapest Hotel, the next film from writer-director Wes Anderson. Amusing, quirky, strange, creative, and with his unique brand of visuals and dialogue, this is bound to have fans nodding with glee. An all-star cast look to be embracing Anderson’s tone and stylings. It’s also good to see Ralph Fiennes take on a lighter, more comedic, role. Interestingly, the film was shot using three different aspect ratios (1.33, 1.85, and 2.35) for reference during it’s three time periods. We can’t wait for what looks like a pure delight.
