The Grand Budapest Hotel

This March, the new movie The Grand Budapest Hotel premieres in cinemas. It is written by Stefan Zweig and directed by the legendary Wes Anderson. As we see in The Grand Budapest Hotel trailer, this movie looks almost like a fantasy. Everything is just so colorful and it all plays with our eyes and imagination.

The new film recounts the adventures of M Gustave and Zero Moustafa. Gustave H is a famous concierge at this famous European Hotel, Zero is the lobby boy. Many distinguished people are visiting the hotel because of the charming concierge, because, he can conquer the heart of any old, rich lady within seconds. This is a secret dirty passion of his. This is why, our main hero gets into some troubles and together with his true friend Zero, they experience some unbelievable adventures. The young lobby boy is the one who shows what a true friendship means. Next to them, there are a bunch of other characters. All of them will make the public laugh and experience some really nice time.

The Grand Budapest Hotel has an absolutely splendid cast, starring stars like Ralph Fiennes, Bill Murray, Jude Law, Adrien Brody, F.Murray Abraham, Mathieu Amalric, Willem Dafoe, Saoirse Ronan, Tony Revolori, Owen Wilson and many others. Ralph Fiennes looks simply fantastic as M Gustave. Such great actors – no wonder why this movie is going to be huge.

Brought to us by 20th Century Fox and produced by Scott Rudin Productions and Indian Paintbrush, The Grand Budapest Hotel is going to make the audience fall in love with its characters and laugh really hard. There is a lot to see and a lot to laugh about. The critics all around the world say that the humor in this movie gets up to high points.

The visuals are simply amazing, as everything looks magical, but at the same time authentic. Do not miss the opportunity to be next to M Gustave and Zero Moustafa in their adventures. This spring, watch the new comedy/drama The Grand Budapest Hotel and feel the incredible story coming alive.

First of all, I’m shocked that a film featuring two Academy Award winning actors (Martin Landau, Tim Robbins) and two Academy Award nominees (Bill Murray, Saoirse Ronan) based on a popular children’s series is being so wildly ignored as far as publicity and hype goes. I loved the book, and I find Ronan to be a great casting choice, and Tim Robbins is enjoyable in anything, so I can’t imagine that there’s not something for everyone here.

Ignored or not, the trailer looks pretty exciting doesn’t it? Definitely far more exciting and action packed than I would have ever pictured the book as. I’m glad I didn’t see any of this before reading the book, as I may have been disappointed in the lack of action while reading, but instead now I feel I’ll be disappointed by the film. I wish this adaptation could have been treated better, but it looks as though it never stood a chance. Directed by relative newcomer Gil Kenan (Monster House), he has taken a slow, steady, and very dark children’s book and turned it into a thrilling race to escape the city, adding a lot of action that didn’t exist in the novel. The trailer does not waste any time in introducing it’s characters and tries to suck the audience in with excitement instead. In fact, I’m not even completely clear on what character Tim Robbins plays (I guessed Doon’s father and IMDB tells me I’m correct), I didn’t see Martin Landau once, and I thought they had cut the character of Lina’s little sister until I freeze framed one of the last shots in the tunnel and realized there was a small child with them all along.

I loved this book so much that I’ll definitely see this movie, but I’m afraid I’ll be disappointed. And depending on how well it performs this weekend, I hope they changed the ending so it doesn’t blatantly set up the next two movies that may never be made.
