UPDATE: Fox Searchlight has slated Wes Anderson's "The Grand Budapest Hotel" for a March 7, 2014 stateside release. This will be the first spring release for Anderson.

2012's hit "Moonrise Kingdom" launched over Memorial Day Weekend, coinciding with its Cannes world premiere. Variety speculates that "Grand Budapest" may opt for a Berlin premiere.

EARLIER: The first poster for Wes Anderson's upcoming "The Grand Budapest Hotel" has arrived. Colorful and dollhouse-like, it fits in with Anderson's aesthetic perfectly. Take a look, below.

Wes Anderson Collection

Still no word yet on a US release date, though it's slated for 2014. The film stars a collection of Anderson regulars as well as newcomers to his wacky world, including Ralph Fiennes, Bill Murray, F. Murray Abraham, Saoirse Ronan, Owen Wilson, Tilda Swinton, Jude Law, Edward Norton and Adrien Brody, among many others. Alexandre Desplat is scoring.

Anderson has described the film as inspired by Classic Hollywood-era director Ernst Lubitsch, who often recreated European locales on studio backlots and sets. (Lubitsch famously quipped that "I've been to Paris, France, and I've been to Paris, Paramount. I think I prefer Paris, Paramount.") The plot revolves around a European hotel concierge (Fiennes) caught in the middle of a drama involving his hotel staffers and guests, and a stolen Renaissance painting and family fortune.

Word is the first trailer for the film is coming soon. Meanwhile Anderson enthusiasts can feast on critic Matt Zoller Seitz's visually sumptuous new Abrams coffee table book, "The Wes Anderson Collection," which boasts an intro from Michael Chabon and 400 color and black-and-white photos.
