Wes Anderson’s ‘Grand Budapest Hotel’ to Open March 7, 2014

Fox Searchlight has dated Wes Anderson’s next ensemble film “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” starring Ralph Fiennes, for March 7, 2014.

The studio, which will release the first trailer for the film Oct. 17, revealed the poster on Monday.

“Grand Budapest Hotel,” which stars Fiennes as Gustave H, the legendary concierge of the famous European hotel between the two World Wars, marks the first spring release for Anderson, as well as his second partnership with Searchlight after 2007’s “The Darjeeling Limited.”

“Budapest” also stars F. Murray Abraham, Mathieu Amalric, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Jude Law, Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Saoirse Ronan, Jason Schwartzman, Tilda Swinton, Tom Wilkinson and Owen Wilson.

Anderson’s last film, “Moonrise Kingdom,” became a box office hit last year, grossing north of $45 million after its launch during Memorial Day weekend. The holiday release was timed to coincide with that film’s world premiere as the opening night film of the Cannes Film Festival.

It’s safe to say, given the March release date for “Budapest,” that the film will skip Cannes 2014 in lieu of another festival, potentially Berlin? Anderson’s “The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou” and “The Royal Tenenbaums” both played there in 2005 and 2002, respectively.
