‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ Gets Even Grander with Interactive New Website

'The Grand Budapest Hotel' Gets Even Grander with Interactive New Website

“Who wouldn’t want to work at the Grand Budapest?” exclaims the budding young lobby boy in director Wes Anderson’s latest cinematic treat “The Grand Budapest Hotel.” That’s a question we’ve all been asking ourselves ever since the film’s first trailer went viral months ago and delighted Wes Anderson fans all over the world.

No part of the world, however, is likely more ecstatic about the film than the Republic of Zubrowka, which provided the now-famous titular hotel and the setting of Anderson’s classically composed murder mystery. In addition to earning bragging rights for its beautiful depiction in what any fan of the Oscar-nominated director’s work knows will be a great topper to an already enviable career, the Zubrowka Film Commission (complete with amazing film amenities) has now created a new Tumblr site with a behind-the-scenes look into the film that features a film events calendar and official assets from the upcoming film, including vignettes and new video content.

You can also watch Bill Murray as M. Ivan as he comes to the aid of M. Gustave H. (Ralph Fiennes) and Zero (Tony Revolori) in a clip from the film that will remind you of why you’ve always cherished Murray.

The film opens stateside March 7, 2014.

As a fan of Wes Anderson, the website is very well designed, and fits quite well with his style. Tons of content, gorgeous typography and photography. Personally, however I don't know how much I want films to "involve" me in such a way as this. I can see how the medium is teetering on creating these types of "experiences", and interactivity. I just find myself not really wanting to engage at that level.
