'The French Dispatch': Wes Anderson film gets first trailer
UPI News Service, 02/12/2020
Searchlight Pictures is giving a glimpse of Wes Anderson's film The French Dispatch.
The studio shared a first trailer for the movie Wednesday featuring Bill Murray as Arthur Howitzer, Jr., the editor of an American magazine reporting on world politics, the arts and human interest stories from a fictional city in France.
The preview shows Howizter (Murray) and his team of journalists (Tilda Swinton, Owen Wilson, Frances McDormand and Jeffrey Wright) create a final issue featuring three stories: "The Concrete Masterpiece," "Revisions to a Manifesto" and "The Private Dining Room of the Police Commissioner."
"The Concrete Masterpiece" centers on Moses Rosenthaler (Benecio del Toro), an incarcerated artist. Rosenthaler creates a masterpiece that he refuses to sell to art dealer Julien Cadazio (Adrian Brody).
"Revisions to a Manifesto" follows Zeffirelli (Timothee Chalamet) and Juliette (Lyna Khoudri), two student revolutionaries who "obliterate a thousand years of republican authority" in their quest for "freedom."
"The Private Dining Room of the Police Commissioner" centers on a police lieutenant and chef (Stephen Park) who specializes in "police cooking." The character creates a meal for food critics amid a kidnapping.
Searchlight Pictures previously released a poster for the film featuring illustrated depictions of the characters.
The French Dispatch is directed by Anderson, who co-wrote the movie with Roman Coppola, Hugo Guinness and Jason Schwartzman. The film also stars Schwartzman, Lea Seydoux, Lois Smith and Christoph Waltz.
