16 April 2014 7:17 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

‘Grand Budapest Hotel’ Hits $100 Mil, Becomes Wes Anderson’s Highest-Grossing Pic

14 April 2014 6:07 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“The Grand Budapest Hotel” has reached yet another milestone.

The quirky dramedy has passed the $100 million mark at the worldwide box office to become director Wes Anderson’s highest-grossing movie to date. Although it took over a month to meet the lofty goal, the film has only been in wide release since March 28. “Budapest Hotel” has now expanded to 1,467 locations, making it Anderson’s second widest release behind “Fantastic Mr. Fox,” which showed in 2,300 theaters.

Even though the film has earned more than any other Anderson pic ($103.8 million), it’s a distant third behind “Moonrise Kingdom” and “The Royal Tenenbaums” in terms of domestic gross. “Budapest Hotel” has made a whopping 62% of its gross overseas, only behind “The Darjeeling Limited’s” 66% share.

“Royal Tenenbaums” is the auteur’s second most successful film with a $71 million worldwide gross.

“Budapest Hotel” also broke the record for the highest-grossing limited live action debut of all time. »

With 'Grand Budapest', Wes Anderson Fights for His Style

10 April 2014 8:24 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

A reader sent me a link to Timothy May's Intercut.net review of Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel and it's a treat of a read. After breaking down the particulars of the plot and characters, May gets deeper into the nuts and bolts of Anderson's filmmaking style as well as the similarities and, more importantly, differences between his lead characters over the course of time. In referring to Ralph Fiennes as M. Gustave and his penchant for honesty, which separates him from previous Anderson leads such as Max Fischer (Jason Schwartzman) in Rushmore and Royal Tenenbaum (Gene Hackman) in The Royal Tenenbaums, who share a "singular notion of culture, class, and decorum", but the latter two are also liars. Why does this matterc Well it matters when it comes to what the character is fighting for and what he stands for as a man. May then writes: »

Four Amazon Studios Pilots Get Full Series Order (Video)

31 March 2014 10:04 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Of the five pilots Amazon Studios made available for streaming in February, four will get a full first season order. From "Transparent" by Jill Soloway to "Mozart in the Jungle" by Roman Coppola, Jason Schwartzman and Alex Timbers, the lineup reflects the increasing shift of indie filmmakers to the serialized, streaming content arena. (Clips below). "Mozart in the Jungle" centers on the behind-the-curtain dramas of New York's classical music scene, starring Gael Garcia Bernal as a hot shot conductor, along with Malcolm McDowell, Lola Kirke, Peter Vack and Bernadette Peters. Coppola, Timbers and Schwartzman wrote the first episode, which Paul Weitz ("About a Boy") directed. Exquisitely acted and directed, the pilot on Amazon sings with Coppola's infectious writing. (He cowrote Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom" and "The Darjeeling Limited.") Emmy-nominated for her work as a writer and producer on HBO's "Six Feet Under" and nominated for an Indie Spirit Award for 2013 debut feature. »

Special Features - Where the cinematic family meets the whimsical fabrication of reality: The cinema of Wes Anderson

26 March 2014 11:58 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Paul Risker on the cinema of Wes Anderson...

Known for brandishing his pen and camera to create a quirky brand of cinema, with the check-in date upon us for the whimsical delights of his eighth feature film The Grand Budapest Hotel, the imaginative auteur Wes Anderson looks to bring his cinema full circle.

From Royal Tenenbaums to Moonrise Kingdom, Anderson has compiled a collection of whimsical family dramas. Habitually creating films that are of the opinion that cinematic realism is a fabrication; Anderson’s cinema echoes the infamous words of Jean-Luc Godard: “Film is 24 lies a second.” Affording his films trademark honesty the self-conscious and whimsical language defines him as one of American cinemas leading auteurs.

Creating his cinematic worlds with an independent logic to those of his contemporaries, Anderson is not following tradition by asking us to suspend our belief. By openly acknowledging the lie of cinema, his »

Wes Anderson... Centered

17 March 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I don't know if Wes Anderson has come to increasingly rely on centering the action in his films, but if this latest video from kogonada is any indication he really ramped it up with Fantastic Mr. Fox and Moonrise Kingdom. I didn't count each scene in the video, but it certainly seems those two dominate while the inclusion of The Royal Tenenbaums and Rushmore is limited, there's more than a few from The Darjeeling Limited, a batch from The Grand Budapest Hotel is covered near the end and I remember at least a couple shots from The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, but I'm not sure I saw any from Bottle Rocket. »

Movies This Week: March 14-20, 2014

14 March 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

After such an active SXSW schedule, it's understandable if you need take a few days to recuperate. It will be another week or so before specialty screenings are back at full speed, but there are still a few standout titles to let you know about. Also, two of the biggest SXSW premieres from this week are hitting area theaters. For those of you who got shut out of those, you should have more luck now.

The Marchesa just spent its first year as a SXSW venue, so the Austin Film Society will be springing back to action again this week with some cool events. They've got the Academy Award-nominated documentary The Square as an area premiere on Tuesday night. Richard Linklater is back on Wednesday with Melvin And Howard, a 1980 selection from Johnathan Demme for his "Jewels In The Wasteland" series, and Essential Cinema has the 1997 Arabic film Destiny on Thursday. »

From The Grand Budapest Hotel to The Darjeeling Limited: five fashion heroes from Wes Anderson films

14 March 2014 9:07 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Whether it's sweatbands, preppy blazers or a severe coiffure, sartorial style is an important part of the director's vision

The costumes of Wes Anderson movies are as much a part of his unique visual world as his candy-coloured palettes and puffing toy train sets. In the Anderson domain, characters are defined by their clothes. They are impossibly cool, indifferent or outright peculiar – and so they lounge louchely in minidresses, knee socks, bowties and mid-20th century eyewear. They are almost always all-American in Brooks Brothers navy blazers and preppy club ties, fringed western attire and sportswear. And they sport Anderson's trademark symbolic visual tropes – red hats, yellow scarves, pyjamas and binoculars. In celebration of the release of The Grand Budapest Hotel, we present the five fashion heroes from Wes Anderson's films.

300: Rise of an Empire smashes The Lego Movie off top UK spot

11 March 2014 8:55 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Togas-to-go and abs to die for atop the UK box office, while Grand Budapest Hotel books in a surprise third

• More from UK box office

The winner

Seven years after the original 300 film, and with Gerard Butler's slain character missing this time around, it was by no means certain that audiences had an appetite for second helpings. But backers Warners and Legendary Pictures will be plenty happy with the opening numbers for 300: Rise of an Empire in the Us and internationally. In the UK, the film, from director Noam Murro (Smart People) and starring Australian actor Sullivan Stapleton (Animal Kingdom), achieved a robust £2.76m debut. While that's well down on 300's opening salvo – £4.75m including previews of £784,000 – it's not bad for a film that seemed short of marketable elements other than the 300 brand name.

Rise of an Empire knocked The Lego Movie off the top spot after a three-week run. »

Wes World: The Cut-to-Fit Universe of Wes Anderson

11 March 2014 5:15 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

He's been called a master of hip cinematic heartbreak who deals in worlds as shiny and perfect as a Christmas ornament — or, put more charitably, a virtuoso at making pathos both wrenching and witty in a idiosyncratic, individual style. You always know when you're watching a Wes Anderson film; the symmetrical compositions and deep-cut soundtracks are a dead giveaway. His latest movie, The Grand Budapest Hotel, has members of his repertory-players cast (including Jason Schwartzman, Willem Dafoe, Adrien Brody, Tilda Swinton, Owen Wilson) zipping through a never-quite-was 20th-century Europe, one »

Jen Krueger: Checking in to The Grand Budapest Hotel

11 March 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Sometimes living in L.A. has great perks, and one of the most recent I’ve enjoyed is the fact that of the four theaters in the U.S. that had The Grand Budapest Hotel on limited release this past weekend, one was just a few blocks from my apartment. I know Wes Anderson isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but as someone who’s been a fan of his films for more than a decade, I find myself increasingly annoyed by the most frequent criticism of his work: he’s making the same movie over and over again. The most common things cited to support this complaint are the look and themes of his films, but I don’t find either of these to be valid arguments.

Usually, an individual cinematic style is considered the mark of an auteur. Spike Jonze, Stanley Kubrick, and Baz Luhrmann all have »

What Is Wes Anderson's Best Movie?

7 March 2014 9:42 AM, PST | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

There are few filmmakers working today with such distinct style as Wes Anderson. And because his movies are so identifiable and enjoyable for certain characteristics, if you like his past work then chances are you'll like his latest, The Grand Budapest Hotel, which opens in limited release this weekend. If you don't like his movies, maybe it's safe to say you won't like this one, either. But Anderson hasn't just been repeating himself for the past 20 years. He does often surprise us, whether it's with a focused short film tied to a new feature (Hotel Chevalier, an appendix/prequel to The Darjeeling Limited) or with a venture into stop-motion animation (The Fantastic Mr. Fox) or by making a whole movie without a single Rolling Stones or Kinks song on the...

Wes Anderson movie music jukebox - Spotify playlist

7 March 2014 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Wes Anderson releases his feature film The Grand Budapest Hotel in UK cinemas today, and for the first time the acclaimed director has a soundtrack that's almost exclusively instrumental.

It's a change of pace for the American filmmaker, who traditionally has married his unique visual style with striking music tracks to strike up nostalgia and emotion in the viewer.

The likes of David Bowie, David Bowie in Portuguese (thanks to Seu Jorge), The Rolling Stones, Cat Stevens and The Proclaimers have all backed Wes Anderson sequences, while the director himself has a tribute song from Italian band I Cani.

"I want to live in a Wes Anderson film, see you in slow motion when you get off the train," they croon in an homage to the final shot of his movies ending in slow motion.

In our own tribute to Anderson, we've curated a Spotify playlist offering up a collection »

The Grand Budapest Hotel Review

6 March 2014 7:02 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Wes Anderson is now at that point in his career where his idiosyncratic style has inspired a younger generation of filmmakers to make movies that critics call “Anderson-esque.” However, as hard as some of his disciples have worked (Richard Ayoade’s Submarine comes to mind), not one of them has been able to best or even match the director’s flair for candy-colored, giddily propulsive storytelling. Anderson’s style has been so far inimitable, which of course means that, at some point in the future the director will retire, and we won’t have any more madcap adventures to look forward to. That may seem like a somewhat morbid statement, but all it’s intended to convey is this: every film Anderson brings us is a gift and should be appreciated as such. The Grand Budapest Hotel, Anderson’s most exquisite and brilliantly realized work to date, is no exception. »
