Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel to Open March 7, 2014


Fox Searchlight Pictures has just announced that Wes Anderson’s latest, The Grand Budapest Hotel, is set to hit theaters on March 7, 2014.

Written and directed by Anderson with a story by Anderson and Hugo Guinness, The Grand Budapest Hotel‘s ensemble cast includes Ralph Fiennes, Tony Revolori, F. Murray Abraham, Mathieu Amalric, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Jude Law, Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Saoirse Ronan and Jason Schwartzman, Tilda Swinton, Tom Wilkinson and Owen Wilson.

The Grand Budapest Hotel 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 story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting and the battle for an enormous family fortune — all against the back-drop of a suddenly and dramatically changing Continent.

The March 7 date has The Grand Budapest Hotel opening opposite 300: Rise of an Empire and the animated Mr. Peabody & Sherman.
