Hail Caesar Cast, Coen Brothers
So maybe let's start this with a hat tip to Channing Tatum and how far he's come. From that guy in the "Step Up" movie, the actor made steady moves to work with directors of note, taking roles in films by Kimberly Peirce ("Stop-Loss"), Michael Mann ("Public Enemies"), Ron Howard ("The Dilemma"), Kevin Macdonald ("The Eagle"), Steven Soderbergh ("Haywire," "Side Effects," "Magic Mike") and Bennett Miller ("Foxcatcher") and that's not to mention becoming the star of franchises like "G.I. Joe" and "21 Jump Street." And so, don't be surprised that the Coens have tapped the actor for their next film.

The Grand Budapest Hotel
While Ralph Fiennes' M. Gustave leads the way in Wes Anderson's utterly delightful "The Grand Budapest Hotel" as the concierge against which all others are measured, one of the many pleasures of the movie is discovering that he's not alone in ensuring the highest standards of his profession are met. As M. Gustave untangles himself from a conspiracy involving murder and a prized artwork, he has to call upon his colleagues—part of The Society Of The Crossed Keys—for their assistance. With those associates played by the likes of Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman and Owen Wilson, it makes for some truly good fun in an already screwball journey.

The Grand Budapest Hotel
As the ornate narratives of Wes Anderson’s films threaten more and more to burst from the frame entirely, Fox Searchlight have since satisfied the need for deserved bonus content. “Hotel Chevalier” and the animated shorts from “Moonrise Kingdom” found different purposes when it came to referencing their feature counterparts, but a new short released with “The Grand Budapest Hotel” is delightful and informative in equal measure.

The Grand Budapest Hotel
Love. There are points during “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” at which it simply floods off the screen. It sounds too lofty perhaps, but how else can you describe the level of minute care that seems to have gone into every single frame, every costume, every tear in every strip of wallpaper? If nothing else (and there is quite a lot else) the film is at times perhaps the apotheosis of Wes Anderson’s aesthetic: a glorious, mischievous sequence of pictorialist plays taking place in a world so perfectly contained it might as well be in a snowglobe. This trademark fetishistic detail makes it feel like it was somehow loved into being, and, for whole passages, we loved it right back, giddily grinning in the dark, already mentally marking out those moments when we’re going to have to hit pause to examine the background, the edge of the frame, the action that happens in the corner of your eye.

Wes Anderson, 6 Best Performances
“Max Fischer’s not fighting change, he’s determinedly fighting against being pigeonholed. He’s fighting for the renaissance view of the world, and for a sense of himself as an adult. I think that he and Steve Zissou and Gustave are all, in some way, at war with the philistines. They are all kind of righteous,” a wise and insightful Ed Norton said this week about the characters that inhabit Wes Anderson’s unique worlds. “I’ve come to think that Wes’s films are all about the way that your real family disappoints you and so you create the family that you need.” Wes himself could probably not articulate it any better.

Grand Budapest Hotel Wes Anderson Tilda Swinton
It seems everyone has once dreamed about making a James Bond movie, and the allure is easy to understand. A dashing hero, sexy dames, exotic locales, colorful villains and larger than life stories are great canvases to paint on, and everyone from Christopher Nolan to Quentin Tarantino has flirted with and thought about what they'd do with 007, and so too has Wes Anderson.
