The poster for Wes Anderson‘s latest, The Grand Budapest Hotel, is a pretty little thing. And there’s no dispute that it’s one of his films; the poster has the trappings of an Anderson production written all over it. The intricate, palacial hotel looks like a dollhouse nestled in a storybook with a rickety but charming marquee spelling out the title. The only way this would be more Andersonian is if the front of the hotel was removed so you could see what all of the guests were doing in each of their rooms on every floor. I’m assuming that will happen at some point during the movie, though.

The film itself is a bit of a departure from his usual fare, though. Set in the early 20th century, it follows a legendary concierge at the hotel, along with his young employee who becomes his protégé. They must deal with the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting, disputes over a family fortune and the changing landscape of Europe during the time period. As our own Scott Beggs pointed out, there are also a lot of parallels to The Grand Hotel to behold.


Fox Searchlight will be releasing the film (surprise, surprise), but no actual date yet save for sometime in 2014.
