Every Tuesday, I will post a trailer I saw in the past week that I felt was worth sharing.
So, this week, the trailer for Wes Anderson’s new film came out. Need I say more? I understand there are some people that might not care for his film, but I’ve found that as a general rule, I tend to not care for those people.
The trailer has everything we like in a Wes Anderson movie: genuinely funny dialogue, quirky costumes, and comedic appearances by great actors. I think I’m a big fan of Saoirse Ronan’s agent, because she’s been in all the right movies recently. I’m delighted to see Harvey Keitel in a feature film again, though his role will likely be small. Ralph Fiennes, who based on the trailer appears to be in the lead role, seems to be the only newcomer to Wes Anderson’s films, but I can already tell why he’d be perfect for his world.
Granted, this does appear to be more of the same from Anderson, whose style has not changed, really, since The Royal Tenenbaums. Even last year’s Moonrise Kingdom, however, was great, which served, if nothing else, as a reminder that the style he coined over a decade ago still works undeniably. I would, perhaps, like to see Wes Anderson try his hand at something slightly different, but at the same time, his voice changing would actually be a distinct loss to the world of cinema.
Interestingly, as distinctive as his style is, this is the first of Anderson’s films that he did not write with a partner. It is coming out on March 7th, 2014 in the USA.
