The illustrious and dashing Count Dmitri Desgoffe-und-Taxis has agreed to be the subject of an exclusive article and accompanying photoshoot for ZQ, Zubrowka’s leading magazine.

ZQ gets up-close and personal with the mysteriously glamourous prodigal son of Zubrowka,  acquiring the inside scoop into the unique Count’s life of luxury, as well as his current legal troubles regarding the infamous Mme. Desgoffe-und-Taxis’ last will and testament (a ZQ exclusive you will not read about anywhere else!)

We hope you enjoy our feature article and pick up a copy of ZQ (available wherever glossy-papered publications are sold) today!

Requiem for a Dying Dawn (One-shot The Grand Budapest Hotel fanfic)

(For a while, I’ve been mulling on what my first contribution to this site would be, and I decided it would be something Dmitri-centric ,considering I run a part-time Dmitri RP account on Twitter [@CountDmitri].

Thus, this one-shot fic was born, since I wanted something short and sweet but still interesting to do. This is, as mentioned previously, done from a first-person POV [Dmitri], and it concerns the time period between the death of Deputy Kovacs and the falling action scene at the Grand Budapest prior to Gustave’s vindication, penned in a semi-diary style format.

It mostly sticks to canon for the sake of being recognizable, but there are some original events I’ve added which explain what our favourite aristocrat has been up to offscreen–it is also somewhat shippy [DmitrixAgatha], so you are warned).

With the first movies, we thought he would be like Woody Allen, whose credits always look like the same, but then he changed. First he added an image, then changed the color and then he changed the font! If you ask me, I think he has become more elegant over the years, and you can also see that in the credits.

And by the way, tell me you can see these images and not mentally listen to the songs that play at the end of his movies.

 

Brief: Jude Law Confirmed for The Grand Budapest Hotel

MTV’s Josh Horowitz interviewed Law at TIFF, where he’s promoting his new film Anna Karenina, and Law confirmed that he is indeed involved in Wes’ next film The Grand Budapest Hotel, and gives some indication that the floated cast list is likely accurate.

 

Just a quick note: we hope to return to updating the site more regularly, a perfect storm of personal stuff keeping our writers busy and a stunning lack of news has left the site a bit barren. Never fear, we’ll be up and running again soon.

Wes’ Next is “The Grand Budapest Hotel”

Deadline reports that Scott Rudin and Indian Paintbrush will produce Wes Anderson’s eighth film The Grand Budapest Hotel. This sequel to The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel No plot details yet, though if we had to guess, the film would involve a hotel of some sort. They also confirm earlier reports that Johnny Depp will have a role in the film. Looks like the film is shaping up pretty quickly, and we have to imagine that Moonrise Kingdom being such a hit certainly isn’t hurting things.
