A new trailer for Wes Anderson‘s The Grand Budapest Hotel is now 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). Like yesterday’s new poster, this trailer is designed to introduce you to the huge cast of characters while still conveying the tone of the picture. It does both wonderfully. The performances look diverse, the humor is light but sharp, and it still has Anderson’s familiar atheistic, but it doesn’t feel stale.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film stars Ralph Fiennes, Tony Revolori, Saoirse Ronan, F. Murray Abraham, Edward Norton, Mathieu Amalric, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Lea Seydoux, Jeff Goldblum, Jason Schwarztman, Jude Law, Tilda Swinton, Harvey Keitel, Tom Wilkinson, Bill Murray, and Owen Wilson. The Grand Budapest Hotel opens March 7, 2014.

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.
