A new clip from writer/director Wes Anderson’s new film The Grand Budapest Hotel has been released online. The story takes place in early 20th-century Hungary, and revolves around the goings-on at the titular hotel where a legendary concierge (Ralph Fiennes) mentors a young employee (Tony Revolori). This new clip focuses on Bill Murray’s character as he sets up a getaway of sorts, and it once again highlights Anderson’s use of multiple aspect ratios in the pic. This is the first film on which Anderson receives sole screenwriting credit, and with the new clip it continues to look like an absolute delight.

Murray Abraham, Edward Norton, Mathieu Amalric, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Lea Seydoux, Jeff Goldblum, Jason Schwarztman, Jude Law, Tilda Swinton, Harvey Keitel, Tom Wilkinson, and Owen Wilson. The Grand Budapest Hotel will premiere at the Berlin Film Festival in February and open in the U.S. on March 7th.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Grand Budapest Hotel:
THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL recounts the adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. The story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting and the battle for an enormous family fortune — all against the back-drop of a suddenly and dramatically changing Continent.
