WATCH: First trailer unveiled for Wes Anderson’s ‘The French Dispatch’
Searchlight Pictures has unleashed the first trailer for Wes Anderson’s anticipated comedy “The French Dispatch.”
Written and directed by Anderson, the film revolves around a group of journalists at an American newspaper bureau, led by Bill Murray in a starring role as Arthur Howitzer Jr., the editor of the “French Dispatch”—”a factual weekly report on the world of politics, the arts – high and low – and diverse stories of human interest.”
Tracing three separate storylines—and based in a fictional 20th-century French city—the quirky film brings to life a collection of stories from the journal with the support of a stellar cast including Benicio Del Toro, Adrien Brody, Tilda Swinton, Léa Seydoux, Frances McDormand, Timothée Chalamet, Lyna Khoudri, Jeffrey Wright, Mathieu Amalric, Stephen Park, Bill Murray and Owen Wilson.
The upcoming film—which will be Anderson’s 10th directorial effort and his fourth working with Searchlight Pictures—is due to bow in theaters July 24. IB /ra
