While you wait to check into "The Grand Budapest Hotel," now's the time to take a moment to dip into Wes Anderson's back catalog of films. Newly arrived on The Criterion Collection, earlier this week we dipped into the 15 Unlikely Influences, Inspirations & Straight Up Lifts From Wes Anderson’s ‘Fantastic Mr. Fox’ and we've got a couple over ways to turn back the clock.

The Grand Budapest Hotel

While you wait to check into "The Grand Budapest Hotel," now's the time to take a moment to dip into Wes Anderson's back catalog of films. Newly arrived on The Criterion Collection, earlier this week we explored the 15 Unlikely Influences, Inspirations & Straight Up Lifts From Wes Anderson’s ‘Fantastic Mr. Fox’ and we've got a couple of other ways to turn back the clock.

Across the pond, the folks at Film4 have nabbed Anderson and got him to record introductions for his breakout film "Rushmore," "The Darjeeling Limited" and the animated "Fantastic Mr. Fox." These are all pretty wonderful and candid, with Anderson revealing that the Roald Dahl adaptation was a conscious attempt to court a bigger audience, that didn't end up working out that way. And cut together with scenes from each film, these are a pretty fun and breezy trip down memory lane.

Meanwhile, ComingSoon has dropped a handful of new "The Grand Budapest Hotel" images including a first look at Lea Seydoux in the film. RSVP for 'Budapest' on March 7th. Watch below.
