We’re still one month away from Wes Anderson’s eighth film The Grand Budapest Hotel, but the release of a new, cryptic clip with Bill Murray and Ralph Fiennes has fans of the director clamoring even more for the quirky film.
In the clip above, entitled “The Escape,” Murray instructs Fiennes and Tony Revolori on a getaway in which they must depart on a train leaving in four minutes. Bonus points for Murray’s perfect moustache.
As the film’s first trailer showed, the story follows Fiennes as Gustave H., a manager at the swanky Budapest Hotel, and his relationship with Zero Moustafa, a lobby boy. There’s murder, revenge, romance and adventure. And not surprisingly, Anderson’s quirky, deadpan comedy sprinkled throughout.
Anderson devotees who have dissected the film’s second trailer are already familiar with the film’s large cast of characters. So far, we’ve met Deputy Kovacs (Jeff Goldblum), Inspector Henckels (Edward Norton), Serge X (Mathieu Amalric), J.G. Jopling (Willem Dafoe), M. Chuck (Owen Wilson) and tatted-up inmate Ludwig (Harvey Keitel).
With this new clip, the mystery and anticipation for the film’s March 7th release grows.
