So remember last week when Fox Searchlight picked up Wes Anderson's "The Grand Budapest Hotel" and dropped the official synopsis, along with a staggering list of cast members? It seems they left one out: Lea Seydoux.

Ah, to be young, beautiful, French and caught between two persistent and handsome men. That's the basic premise of Wes Anderson and Roman Coppola's obviously whimsical series of shorts for Prada, and the third and final installment has now arrived bringing the story to a close.

It looks like Wes Anderson is going back to a familiar home. After teaming with Focus Features for last year's "Moonrise Kingdom," the filmmaker's "The Grand Budapest Hotel" has been snatched up by Fox Searchlight who released "Fantastic Mr. Fox" and "The Darjeeling Limited." But that's the boring stuff, the good news? We now have a plot.

Sometimes name-brand directors are hired for ads and you wonder why the money was spent at all (Guy Ritchie's recent spot for H&M comes to mind), but then there are the occasions where the synergy makes sense. And certainly, Prada knew exactly what they were doing when they snapped up Wes Anderson and Roman Coppola for their most recent campaign. And following a teaser last week, we now get a much bigger bite of the short they've put together.

The first question that comes to mind is: how on Earth did they find time to do this? With Wes Anderson spending most of last year stumping for "Moonrise Kingdom," and now in production on "The Grand Budapest Hotel," while his frequent collaborator and pal Roman Coppola (who co-wrote 'Moonrise') also ushered his film, "A Glimpse Inside The Mind Of Charles Swan III" into theaters, it seems they have found a brief window within in which to work together again. The duo paired up to make a short film for Miuccia Prada, and the first teaser promises something expectedly quirky and beautifully designed.

This month's tentpole adaptation, “The Host,” stands to bring Saoirse Ronan to a new level of exposure, but for fans of the actress looking beyond Stephenie Meyer's creation, there's plenty of promising projects soon to come: she's nabbed lead roles in both Wes Anderson's latest, “The Grand Budapest Hotel” and Ryan Gosling's directorial debut, “How To Catch A Monster.” Recently, we got the opportunity to chat with her about each of them, as well as her upcoming role in director Kevin Macdonald's latest effort "How I Live Now."

For fans of the characteristically dollhouse-meticulous set design in Wes Anderson’s “Moonrise Kingdom” come two extras: an illustrated script and an interview with the film’s production designer, Adam Stockhausen, on The New York Times’ The Carpetbagger blog. While the film was snubbed by the Academy in the visual categories, only snagging one nomination for Best Original Screenplay, critics agreed that Anderson again served up a tasty visual treat – so it’s no surprise to see this interest in the film’s ocular appeal.

Wes Anderson's next picture, "The Grand Budapest Hotel," was supposed to star Johnny Depp, but that plan fell through. Nevertheless, it has an outstanding cast featuring Ralph Fiennes, Jude Law, Saoirse Ronan, Jeff Goldblum and regular W.A. collaborators Bill Murray, Owen Wilson and Jason Schwartzman. Other names rumored early on were past collaborators Edward Norton who starred in "Moonrise Kingdom," Adrien Brody who was one of the brothers in "The Darjeeling Limited" and Willem Dafoe who played the second-in-command in "The Life Aquatic" (the latter two also did voice work in "Fantastic Mr. Fox").

How quickly things change. Remember Borders? It seems every town in America had one, but the company that once had 1200 stores, closed its doors in 2011 forever. But we have a bit of history today from when they were still alive and kicking.
