Searchlight Pictures has released a new trailer for Wes Anderson’s star-studded comedy drama The French Dispatch which brings to life a collection of stories published in a magazine in a fictional 20th century French city; watch it here…
On the death of its beloved Kansas-born editor Arthur Howitzer, Jr., (Bill Murray) the staff of The French Dispatch, a widely circulated American magazine based in the French city of Ennui-sur-Blasé, convenes to write his obituary. Memories of Howitzer flow into the creation of four stories: a travelogue of the seediest sections of the city itself from The Cycling Reporter; “The Concrete Masterpiece,” about a criminally insane painter, his guard and muse, and his ravenous dealers; “Revisions to a Manifesto,” a chronicle of love and death on the barricades at the height of student revolt; and “The Private Dining Room of the Police Commissioner,” a suspenseful tale of drugs, kidnapping and fine dining.
The film stars Benicio Del Toro, Adrien Brody, Léa Seydoux, Tilda Swinton, Frances McDormand, Timothée Chalamet, Lyna Khoudri, Jeffrey Wright, Mathieu Amalric, Stephen Park, Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, Christoph Waltz, Edward Norton, Jason Schwartzman, Anjelica Huston, Saoirse Ronan, Liev Schreiber, Willem Dafoe, Rupert Friend, Fisher Stevens, Henry Winkler, Alex Lawther, and Tony Revolori.
The French Dispatch arrives in cinemas on October 22nd.
