Ok, we love Wes Anderson just as much as you, but after seeing the brand new trailer for his latest film, it seems worth pointing out that, to quote a spot-on YouTube comment earlier this morning, “This is the most Wes Anderson thing I’ve seen in my entire life.”
After all, take a look at these next two paragraphs. One is the actual description of Anderson’s upcoming new film, and the other is taken from BW/DR staff writer Andy Sturdevant’s recent satirical piece "A Speculative Wes Anderson Filmography (2014-2065)". Which one do you think is the real deal?
"The film recounts the adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend."
"The film is an account of a wealthy young heir (played by John W. Stillman, Jr., son of Whit Stillman, in a breakout performance) who becomes the first male to graduate from a prestigious eastern women’s college. He subsequently strikes up an odd friendship with a self-sacrificing Pakistani ice cream man in Central Park."
