It’s time for a new Wes Anderson movie! I, personally, am a Wes Anderson lover AND hater (because I contain multitudes, okay?). Bottle Rocket, Rushmore and The Royal Tenenbaums are three of my top 20 favorite movies of all-time ever and Life Aquatic is in the top 30, but I thought Darjeeling Limited was self-indulgent nonsense and Moonrise Kingdom was the worst kind of man-boy romanticizing of youth. Fantastic Mr. Fox was pretty great, in its own way, but for some reason I don’t put that in the category of “Wes Anderson Movie.” Anyway, the trailer for his newest movie is here! The Grand Budapest Hotel! Will it be racist? Will it be sexist? Right now I don’t care! Because it has everything and everyone Wes Anderson: Exotic locales! Boyish adventure! Jason Schwartzman! Matching outfits! Oh 2014, you can’t come soon enough.
