This Is What A Wes Anderson Horror Movie Would Look Like

The best part of last night's Edward Norton-hosted "Saturday Night Live" was this digital short, a mock trailer for the Wes Anderson-directed horror flick, "The Midnight Coterie of Sinister Intruders." It features all of the classic Wes Anderson tropes: actors like Owen Wilson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Tilda Swinton, and Danny Glover; a pair of precocious childre…

Wes Anderson’s Guide To Love

As a self-proclaimed Wes Anderson junkie, I couldn't wait to take a peek at the just-released trailer for his latest film, "The Grand Budapest Hotel." In what looks to be another classic from the famed director, the romance between lobby boy Zero (Tony Revolori) and Saoirse Ronan's Agatha is reminiscent of the young sweethearts in last…

First Look: Wes Anderson’s “The Grand Budapest Hotel”

Fan of Wes Anderson's incredibly detailed, diorama-like films, with their intricate cast of characters, quirky dialogue and creative storytelling? Then you'll probably be amped to see his next movie, "The Grand Budapest Hotel," which stars the usual heavyweights like Ralph Fiennes, Adrien Brody, Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton, amongst others. The film doesn't come out till…

Wes Anderson And Roman Coppola Make Short Films For Prada

Wes Anderson and Roman Coppola are something of a movie-making dream team, and they've taken their quirky, manic-pixie-dream-film aesthetic and lent it to Prada for a series of advertorial vignettes. Their collaborative campaign for the fashion house's latest perfume, Candy L'eau, stars French actress Lea Seydoux as the titular Candy, a baby bangs-wearing ingenue trapped…

Wes Anderson’s “Moonrise Kingdom” Is A Must-See

Wes Anderson's new film "Moonrise Kingdom," which tells a story of two dissatisfied, soul-searching 12-year-olds falling in love in 1960s New England, shattered limited-release box office records with a gross of $669,486 over the four-day Memorial Day holiday weekend. The movie's distributor, Focus Features, confirmed that its per-location average of $130,752 by Sunday while playing…

Every Wes Anderson Slow-Motion Shot, Set To Ja Rule

One of my favorite things about the internet is that it provides a forum for two random and awesome, but completely unrelated things to be brought together into something you had no idea you needed. Think about it -- if the internet didn't exist, the person who made the video above might have thought setting…

First Look: Wes Anderson’s New Flick “Moonrise Kingdom”

We couldn't be more excited about the new Wes Anderson movie, "Moonrise Kingdom," about a boy and girl who run away from home together. The cast includes Anderson mainstays Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman, along with Edward Norton, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, and Bruce Willis. But why I'm really, really excited? My friend Jessica Hische

If Wes Anderson Made A Horror Flick

Oh, how fun! This is what "Scream" would have been like if Wes Anderson ("The Royal Tenenbaums") had directed it instead of Wes Craven. This is the kind of horror film I could get into; one that focuses on the quality of the wine and the neurosis of the main characters rather than the "scare…

Save The Date, “Rushmore”-Style

Check out this "Save the Date" wedding video from Austin, TX, couple Hayden and Sean. Depending on how you feel about Wes Anderson's twee world, this video is either utterly cute or terribly annoying. Regardless, it emulates "Rushmore" and "The Royal Tenenbaums" to a tee. [BuzzFeed]…

We Like This Wes Anderson And Roman Coppola Directed Stella Artois Commercial

Young auteurs everywhere violently dislike (read: envy) directors Wes Anderson and Roman Coppola, and surely this new commercial for Stella Artois beer directed by both will make their filmmaker heads explode. The premise is pretty sly. A dashing dude brings home a cute girl to whom he shows off his super cool bachelor pad. Only…

Shun, Shag, Or Marry? This Month’s Blockbuster Directors

It was a super hot week for Hollywood blockbusters and, more importantly, their directors. Too bad they don’t get any actual screen time. Peter Jackson was the lord of the red carpet at the “Lovely Bones” premiere. Yep, the man seriously went from hobbit to hot. Who knew what was hiding under all that facial…
