We knew it coming and finally today Searchlight Films have released the First Trailer for The French Dispatch. Oh la la!!! Six years in waiting for the next live action Wes Anderson film (2 since Isle Of Dogs) we return for another quirky cinéma-vérité.
As ever with every Anderson film, full of style and a fantastic ensemble cast. Unique and wonderfully charming.
The film has been described as a ‘love letter to journalists’. The French Dispatch (aka The French Dispatch Of The Liberty, Kansas Evening Sun), is a New Yorker style magazine. Facing it’s final issue, the film will be based around three of the magazines stories and struggles to get those stories.
Cannot wait for this one!
