Watch Bill Murray and Timothée Chalamet in First Trailer for Wes Anderson's 'The French Dispatch'
Inspired by prestigious publication ‘The New Yorker.’
The first official trailer for Wes Anderson‘s much-anticipated upcoming movie, The French Dispatch, has been unveiled by Fox Searchlight Pictures. Loosely based on The New Yorker, the film centers on the editor and writers of a fictional weekly magazine based in Paris. Bill Murray stars as Arthur Howitzer, Jr. (a character modeled after The New Yorker’s Founding Editor Harold Ross) alongside Timothée Chalamet as student revolutionary Zeffirelli and Léa Seydoux as Simone, the muse of imprisoned artist Moses Rosenthaler (Benicio del Toro).
The trailer follows Anderson’s signature narrated form, and off-beat sense of humor. Perfectly composed shots in both color and black-and-white reveal additional cast members including Adrian Brody, Frances McDormand, Elizabeth Moss and Saiorse Ronan, who starred in Anderson’s 2014 film The Grand Budapest Hotel.
The French Dispatch hits theaters July 24, 2020.
