The first trailer for "The Grand Budapest Hotel," the upcoming star-studded addition to director/writer Wes Anderson's catalog of films, premiered. The film's synopsis, which has remained relatively vague until now, is outlined in Fox Searchlight's international trailer and features many of Anderson's familiar faces, including Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, and Jason Schwartzman. Newcomer (and occasional YouTuber) Tony Revolori stars as lobby boy Zero Moustafa alongside Ralph Fiennes' concierge Gustave H at a high-brow European hotel when a distinguished guest (Tilda Swinton) is murdered and chaos and confusion naturally ensues.
The film is due to hit theaters in March 2014.
