I'm sure this has been mentioned before but I couldn't find the thread, but Alexandre Desplat has scored the new Wes Anderson film, THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL, which opens in March.

The first trailer premiered today and while I don't think it features any of Desplat's score, it looks typically Wes Anderson, which is to say delightful.

Hope Desplat gets to write more than 15 minutes of music this time.

Looks terrific. Wes and Desplat are always great.

Fixed.

I think that the middle part of the trailer has music from Desplat. The score was recorded on early September (with the LSO and the male choir of London Voices), so they might had time to included a bit on the trailer.

Looks great! While I do miss Mothersbaugh sometimes, Desplat has fit right in to Anderson's universe; I loved his score for FANTASTIC MR FOX. I'd be surprised, though, if he had an album's-worth of material for this film--Anderson's films have rarely been score-heavy. What I am curious about is the aspect ratio of the trailer. Has this been filmed in a 4:3 aspect ratio?

If Anderson can continue making films as delightful as Bottle Rocket through Moonrise Kingdom (and probably this one will join that pack of classics), then who cares that his style is unmistakably his?

Apparently it begins with a 1.33:1 ratio, then shifts to 1.85:1, and finally ends up being 2.35:1.

Mothersbaugh wrote music for the Camp Ivanhoe scenes in Moonrise Kingdom.

By the way, the music of the trailer is by Desplat (confirmed by London Voices).

From what we've been hearing the film will be a strictly scored affair by Alexandre Desplat (that means no pop music interludes from The Kinks, etc.) and has been highly influenced by Russian folk music as can be heard in the trailer.

This isn't a total surprise as "Moonrise Kingdom" had a bare minimum of pop songs (some Hank Williams can be heard briefly on the car radio) and as this is a '30s set period piece, it makes sense to move further away from anachronistic pop

Woah, that seems to be the greatest percentage of score that there has ever been on a Wes Anderson soundtrack album. Looking forward to this!

I am particularly excited about this review excerpt (bolded emphasis mine):

David Ehrlich says:

"... it becomes impossible to deny the value of Wes Anderson’s work, or his decision to double down on what makes it unique. Sight unseen, it might sound like cinema as defensive posturing, but The Grand Budapest Hotel locates the irreducibly human element at the heart of Anderson’s style, in the process becoming his most stylish film to date.

But if this is the most Wes Anderson film he’s made yet, a large part of what makes The Grand Budapest Hotel so much fun is that – at the same time – none of his previous films have been so transparently indebted to other filmmakers. Cute references abound (the full name of Swinton’s character is Madame Céline Villeneuve Desgoffe und Taxis, a.k.a “Madame D,” a loud nod to Max Ophüls), while brilliant matte paintings recall The Archers and a third act chase sequence feels like a Bond movie directed by Ernst Lubitsch.

....Of course, at the end of the day it’s really pretty simple: either you want to see a movie in which a bearded Jeff Goldblum plays a character named Deputy Vilmos Kovacs, or you don’t. But trust me, you do. You really do."


Justin Chang from Variety has this to say about Desplat's score:

" In the first Anderson movie to feature no pop songs, Alexandre Desplat has concocted an unusually inventive score that combines a wide range of Central and Eastern European instruments (balalaikas, cimbaloms, Alpine horns), reaching a delirious crescendo toward the end of the closing credits."

I´m delighted that Desplat has so many high profile films scored this year. And in so different genres. Looking forward to "The Monuments Men", "The Grand Budapest Hotel" and - wow, "Godzilla".
