Checking into the Grand Budapest Hotel

We have been much better about updating things over at the Facebook page than here, but we plan to be better about things now that the new one is on its way. If you are a long-term fan of the site, you know that activity picks up around film releases.

We have learned that the Grand Budapest Hotel will be released on March 7, 2014. The official site is located here.

Here is the trailer:

  • From Slate: ‘One of the most striking things about the trailer is the aspect ratio (that is, the dimensions of the image): It appears to be 4:3 (or 1.33:1) throughout. Anderson reportedly shot the movie in three different aspect ratios, 1.33, 1.85, and 2.35:1, as is explained in Matt Zoller Seitz’s new book, The Wes Anderson Collection. “The movie jumps through three time periods,” the book explains, and “the different aspect ratios tell viewers where they are in the timeline.” Anderson told Seitz that he had always wanted to shoot a movie in the old 1.33:1 ratio, for “the tallness” of it. “We considered shooting Tenenbaums that way,” he says, “because the house is vertical.”’
  • Cuss Yeah, Wes Anderson on “Boy with Apple”
