Everyone's favorite twee director is set to win your heart yet again.
In the trailer for Wes Anderson's next feature, The Grand Budapest Hotel the University of Texas alum returns to some of his favorite tropes and schemes – bell boys (The Royal Tenenbaums, may Pagoda rest in peace), hotels ("Hotel Chevalier"), wild antics (The Darjeeling Limited) – and of course all the saturated colors and caricature styles that we know and love.
…But with an even bigger and better cast. Sure, some old familiars are back again (Owen Wilson, Bill Murray, Adrien Brody, Edward Norton, etc.), but with Ralph Fiennes (perhaps best remembered as Voldemort) and Willem Dafoe on board, we're confident this will be the Wes Andersoniest of them all.
