Here’s a look at Wes Anderson’s newest movie “the Grand Budapest Hotel”. I can already tell it’s going to be a beautiful movie! The plot might be thin ( or too heavy handed ), the humor
might be will be heavy handed and dry; but the movie will be beautiful and the charectors will be sweep you off to WesLand – a place where nothing is ridiculous and all things are intriguing.
Here’s a link to the official website for trailers and such, as well as a link to an “online course” about the country of Zubrowka ( which is real ). “Akademie Zubrowka” is a major bit of fan service from the production and marketing team, We get to explore the history and setting of the film without drowning in clips and BTS vids. Don’t get me wrong, I love doing that ( I’ve watched the Veronica Mars Movie youtube playlist 5x in the last 24 hours ) but this is a more creative way to get die-hard fans involved in the story.
The Academy of Zubrowka takes you through pertinent historical facts of the movie’s time period (Some of this – if not all – is made up). The site is really fun, the UI is a portfolio of historical documents and photos ( definitely designed for tablets and touch screen tech ^^).
