The genius that is Wes Anderson once again returns to cinemas with a bold new original tale in The French Dispatch, and this one is again filled with the director’s trademark quirks and innovative and inventive storytelling.
Watch the full trailer below:
Here’s the official synopsis:
Described as “a love letter to journalists set at an outpost of an American newspaper in a fictional 20th-century French city”, centering on three storylines, and brings to life a collection of tales published in the eponymous The French Dispatch.
Developed from the auteur mind of Wes Anderson from his love of The New Yorker, The French Dispatch, or better known by its full title, The French Dispatch of the Liberty, Kansas Evening Sun, looks like another masterful piece of cinema from the beloved filmmaker and pulls together his trademark originality and impressive visual palette for another wildly entertaining piece of cinema.
Designed as a tribute to the art and profession of the journalistic craft, Anderson has once again brought his signature visual style of flat space camera moves, obsessively symmetrical compositions and a sparse, yet beautiful pastel-influenced colour palette to The French Dispatch.
Once again a who’s who of the best working talent in Hollywood have signed on to appear in The French Dispatch including Benicio del Toro, Tilda Swinton, Jeffrey Wright, Adrien Brody, Owen Wilson, Léa Seydoux, Timothée Chalamet and Bill Murray.
The French Dispatch most certainly will be one to capture your attention when it arrives in cinemas on July 23, 2020.
