Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel has debuted its first trailer, following Ralph Fiennes’ hotel concierge’s misadventures with a lobby boy (more innocent than it sounds).
The trailer is a feast for the eyes and has the luxury feel you come to expect from the idiosyncratic director, focusing on curious events at a vast, pink hotel.
A comedic drama, it centres on a hotel concierge’s friendship with a lobby boy, whom he takes under his wing only for the pair to become embroiled in the theft of a priceless painting and a battle over a family fortune.
Many of Anderson’s oft-collaborators such as Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody, Jason Schwartzman, Edward Norton and Bill Murray feature in the film, along with other big names like Jeff Goldblum, Tilda Swinton, Willem Dafoe and Harvey Keitel.
The auteur’s last movie was Moonrise Kingdom, which focused on the exploits of an outgoing boy scout and was nominated for a best original screenplay Oscar.
The Grand Budapest Hotel opens its doors in 2014.
