Fox Searchlight will open Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel on March 7, 2014. Ralph Fiennes has the lead role (a legendary concierge) in this 1930s period piece. All Anderson films are about sublime style (directorial, sartorial, production design, cutting, music) and that special serving of deadpan Andersonian coolness. Plus he almost always sticks with his stock company of refined, cultivated, X-factor hipster types (i.e., people with opaque or watercolor personalities and manners who “get” the Anderson thing). This time it’s 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. (Anderson would probably never cast Jason Statham or Mo’Nique or Charlie Hunnam.) It’ll probably play the Berlin Film Festival in February, I’m guessing. Check out the mountains and the waterfall behind the hotel — pretty much the exact same landscape that towers over Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland, which I’ve visited twice. A Grand Budapest Hotel trailer will pop sometime tomorrow morning.

Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland.
