Published Feb 12, 2020Hyper-symmetrical dandy auteur Wes Anderson will return with his long-awaited new film The French Dispatch later this year. We've seen the poster and learned the release date, but it's not a true Andersonian experience until we've enjoyed the visual feast of a trailer.
The French Dispatch looks about as maximalist as we've ever had from the director, bashing together myriad aspect ratios, colour grades and narrative threads as it attempts to introduce us to an old-timey newspaper. Think Michael Bay's ADHD filmmaking, through an aesthetically charming lens.
The film stars Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody, Benicio Del Toro, Tilda Swinton, Léa Seydoux, Frances McDormand, Timothée Chalamet, Jeffrey Wright, Stephen Park, Lyna Khoudri, Mathieu Amalric, Liev Schreiber, Elisabeth Moss, Edward Norton, Willem Dafoe, Lois Smith, Saoirse Ronan, Christoph Waltz, Cecile De France, Guillaume Gallienne, Jason Schwartzman, Tony Revolori, Rupert Friend, Henry Winkler, Bob Balaban, Hippolyte Girardot and Anjelica Huston. So, pretty much everyone.
Watch the trailer for the new Wes Anderson movie below.
The French Dispatch arrives on July 24 via Searchlight Pictures.
