THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL is one of the years most hotly anticipated films. Fans of Wes Anderson’s previous work cannot wait to see what the visionary director has to offer. He is known for his off-beat comedy and unconventional choices of colour, set and costume; when you watch an Anderson film your eyes are in for as much of a treat as your brain. His attention to detail is phenomenal (he built an entire split ship set so he could show it in it’s whole entirety for THE LIFE AQUATIC WITH STEVE ZISSOU) and you can tell his heart is really devoted to his craft.
From the look of the trailer it seems that THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL could be the director’s most ambitious project yet and it is rammed full of stars – you only have to look at the poster to see what we mean.
Wes Anderson films look like a lot of fun to make with his cast members returning again and again, whilst he has a stream of requests from the rest of Hollywood as they clamour to get their names on the call sheets. THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL is no exception, and sees a wide mix of returning players alongside first-timers. THN have drawn up a nifty who’s-who to keep you up to date.
