Whenever Wes Anderson releases a new film, it’s reason to celebrate. From Rushmore to Fantastic Mr. Fox and The Royal Tenenbaums to Moonrise Kingdom, Mr. Anderson is one of Hollywood’s most unique and delightful directors, delivering hit after hit and never failing to entertain audiences. His newest effort, The Grand Budapest Hotel, is arriving in theatres this week and with it comes an absolutely dynamite cast (as per usual for an Anderson film).
Starring Ralph Fiennes, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Edward Norton, Jude Law, Bill Murray, Saoirse Ronan and many, many more, the director’s latest tells the story of legendary concierge Gustav (Fiennes), who works at the titular hotel. Framed for a murder that he didn’t commit, he’s forced to team up with a young employee (Tony Revolori) to prove his innocence.
Last weekend, several of the film’s cast members attended the NYC press day and we were lucky enough to sit down for an exclusive video interview with them. Speaking to Dafoe, Goldblum, Ronan and Revolori, we found out how they approached their characters, what makes a Wes Anderson set unique, how much of their roles formed once they started filming and much more.
Check it all out in the video below and be sure to catch The Grand Budapest Hotel when it opens for business on March 7th!
