It must have been the AMAs or those newly syndicated Hollywood Film Awards that I watched. It’s hazy but when I saw the preview trailer for this movie, I was excited. To be frank, it was the only clip that I remembered and Bill Murray is the man. Not to mention, it was directed by Wes Anderson (The Royal Tenenbaums). It was the only movie I wanted to see. I was actually vocal about it. Fast forward and here I am with an email courtesy of its production house, 20th Century Fox, and all of the promotional materials in its glory. Behind-the-scenes footage included. Honestly, it is days like these when I love my job the most. Now as the official movie description will have it:

    The Grand Budapest Hotel recounts the adventures of legendary concierge Gustave H. and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. The story involves the theft of a priceless painting; a raging battle for an enormous family fortune; and a desperate chase on motorcycles, trains, sleds, and skis – all against the back-drop of a suddenly and dramatically changing Continent.
