‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ Trailer is a Brilliant Parody of a Wes Anderson Trailer

Ok. Fine. It’s not really a parody at all, it’s the actual trailer. Check it.

Anderson and Co. have fiddled with their Twee and Quaint meters and they’ve somehow gotten both of those things stuck way past eleven. Let’s see what we’ve got here: Anachronistic Time Period Setting? Check. Slow Motion Tracking Shots? Check.  Capering? Check. Bandying About? Check. Quirky People Being Blase About Intense Emotional Things? Check. It’s all there. Also all there is Soairse Ronan, and a smattering of his mainstays: Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, Jason Schwartzman, and so on and so forth.  

I suppose that’s what people see his movies for now anyways. I mean, Quaint might actually be a good thing after all, what the f*ck do I know? I’m also contractually obligated to see every Bill Murray movie. It’s the law.
