Of all the star-studded names wearing great costumes and playing eccentric characters in Wes Anderson‘s “The Grand Budapest Hotel“—Ralph Fiennes, Edward Norton, Mathieu Amalric, Saoirse Ronan, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Lea Seydoux, Jeff Goldblum, Jason Schwartzman, Jude Law, Tilda Swinton, Harvey Keitel, Tom Wilkinson, Bill Murray and Owen Wilson—one of the main faces leading the movie is someone who you probably haven’t heard of: Tony Revolori. But you’re going to meet him right now.
The first clip from the film has arrived and it finds both Ralph Fiennes, and us, meeting Zero played by Revolori (and F. Murray Abraham as the older version), who is hired as a lobby boy at the titular hotel and gets thrown into the wild orbit of M. Gustave. It’s pretty charming stuff, suggesting that Anderson is in perfect form with this one. And yes, that is the Academy Ratio you’re watching with the film utilizing three different screen formats (check out our epic breakdown of the trailer for more details on that).
“The Grand Budapest Hotel” premieres at the Berlin Film Festival in February and opens on March 7th.
