What is it about Wes Anderson’s latest film that requires a red band trailer, the equivalent of R-rated marketing? Some language, for sure. A bit of nudity, though not the kind you are expecting. And a certain dash of violence. In fact, The Grand Budapest Hotel has more violence than we’re prone to expect from Mr. Anderson, whose last two movies were about a stop-motion animated fox and a couple of kids traversing the wilderness for love. It’s a welcomed change of pace from the man whose style is so unmistakable. A kitschy murder mystery with all the rhythm and wit that fits so well in his filmography that you’d expect Royal Tenenbaum to be checked in to the titular vacation spot.
But enough about that, let’s watch this red band trailer and enjoy the splendor of some vulgarity, shall we?
