In case it wasn’t an accepted fact that Wes Anderson films traffic in quirk the same way banks deal with money, he would like to submit one more exhibit to convince you: a website that offers up a fake academic case study on the fictional nation that is the setting for his latest film.

Yup. That sounds like our Wes. The site, which you can get to right here, serves as a fake old-school film, complete with the sound of film running through a spool. Cause that’s how W.A. rolls.

Then, once you choose one of three links, you get to scroll through presentations horizontally, as though they were on microfiche. Is there anything more Wes Anderson-y than microfiche?

Maybe obscure songs from The Kinks catalog, but that’s about it.

So enjoy the site, then enjoy The Grand Budapest Hotel, which, according to the information garnered here, may not be in Budapest.

Wes Anderson got this one in just under the wire so hipsters can fashion their Lobby Boy costume for Halloween. Because how embarrassing would it be to dress like Where The Wild Things Are kid again?

This time around, Ralph Fiennes stars as the selfish man-child whose outsized ego threatens to bring down everyone around him. All in all, The Grand Budapest Hotel looks like a return to form after the languid pace and forgettableness of Moonrise Kingdom. The ensemble comedy also stars Anderson favorites and newbies like Saoirse Ronan, Edward Norton, Willem Dafoe, Jude Law, Owen Wilson, Lea Seydoux, Bill Murray, Adrien Brody, Tilda Swinton, Jeff Goldblum, Jason Schwartzman, F. Murray Abraham, Tom Wilkinson, Harvey Keitel, Tony Revolori and the color pink.

Wes Anderson’s ‘Grand Budapest Hotel’ Adds The Luminous Starpower Of Tilda Swinton And Adrien Brody http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/wes-andersons-grand-budapest-hotel-adds-the-luminous-starpower-of-tilda-swinton-and-adrien-brody/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/wes-andersons-grand-budapest-hotel-adds-the-luminous-starpower-of-tilda-swinton-and-adrien-brody/#comments Thu, 27 Dec 2012 19:39:11 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=252618 Christmas came late this year. Or whatever gift-oriented holiday is applicable to you.

Not to settle with the presence of merely Jude Law, Jeff Goldblum, Ralph Fiennes, Bill Murray, Edward Norton, and Jason Schwartzman, Wes Anderson has decided to not stop casting until he surpasses Altman’s The Player in terms of gratuitous casting. So he’s picked up Tilda Swinton, who can be really funny when she wants to be, even though she rarely wants to be, and Adrien Brody, who is also funny, but only because he resembles an Afghan hound.

The film is set in the 1920′s in a Hungarian hotel, so it‘s guaranteed to shatter box office records on those premises alone.

But if that’s not enough, he’s sweetened the pot with Brody and Swinton. And what a sweet pot it is.

Tired of spending hours in the makeup chair and having to sit with Helena Bonham Carter at lunch, Johnny Depp has agreed to switch things up and appear in Wes Anderson‘s next film. Newly titled the most Wes Anderson-y name available, The Grand Budapest Hotel has cast Depp while it’s rumored that heartthrobs Jude Law and Angela Lansbury are also being pursued for parts. No word on whether or not Bill Murray will appear in the film, but c’mon. He’s the Wes Anderson version of Tim Burton’s Johnny Depp. (Deadline)
