Watch The Sublime First Trailer For Wes Anderson's New Movie 'The French Dispatch'
The director's latest movie is beautifully shot and features a stunning cast. What more could you want?
Wes Anderson is among a small group of directors whose every release makes waves. The French Dispatch, his latest project, is set in France and features an excellent cast: Benicio del Toro, Adrien Brody, Tilda Swinton, Léa Seydoux, Frances McDormand, Timothée Chalamet, Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, Liev Schreiber, Elisabeth Moss, Edward Norton, Willem Dafoe, Lois Smith, Saoirse Ronan, Christoph Waltz, Rupert Friend and Anjelica Huston are among the actors appearing in the movie.
But a film is more than just its cast, and we've been waiting impatiently for the first images and hints at the plot. And the first trailer sets the tone for what seems to be a dense movie, more beautiful than ever.
The synopsis is brief:
"'The French Dispatch' is a love letter to journalists set in an outpost of an American newspaper in a fictional 20th Century French city."
To be more precise, the movie follows the team at The French Dispatch, an imaginary supplement (based on The New Yorker) issued with an American newspaper, the Liberty, Kansas Evening Sun. Their offices are located at Ennui-sur-Blasé, and the magazine is gradually dying.
The story seems to focus on three different reports from the latest issue: one about a crazy artist who makes the female guard at the prison he's detained in into his muse; another about young students during the events of May 68; and another about a police officer's cook. After watching the trailer, we certainly can't wait to find out more.
The French Dispatch will be released on July 24 this year.
