The French Dispatch trailer: Wes Anderson’s latest is true to his style

The film is about not only the magazine, but the stories in it, as three different ones are dramatized in the film.

Hyper-symmetrical dandy auteur Wes Anderson will return with his long-awaited new film The French Dispatch later this year. Murray and Wilson's characters, Arthur Howitzer Jr and Herbsaint Salzerac, are respectively based on a former editor and writer for The New Yorker, which Anderson famously loves. "It's not a movie about freedom of the press, but when you talk about reporters you also talk about what's going on in the real world".

Benicio del Toro, Tilda Swinton, Léa Seydoux, Frances McDormand, Timothée Chalamet, Lyna Khoudri, Mathieu Amalric and Stephen Park round out the principal cast.

Lam criticized the strike and said the government was doing all it could to limit the flow of people across the border. The cases are concerning because they suggest the virus can spread more easily between people than has been suspected.


As with most Anderson endeavors, that's just skimming the surface of his ensemble cast. But the film also features appearances by (deep breath) Liev Schreiber, Elisabeth Moss, Edward Norton, Willem Dafoe, Lois Smith, Saoirse Ronan, Christoph Waltz, Cécile de France, Guillaume Gallienne, Jason Schwartzman, Tony Revolori, Rupert Friend, Henry Winkler, Bob Balaban, Hippolyte Girardot and Angelica Huston.

The upcoming film will be Anderson's 10th directorial effort and his fourth working with Searchlight Pictures, with his previous projects for the studios including "The Darjeeling Limited", "The Grand Budapest Hotel" and "Isle of Dogs".

Look for The French Dispatch to hit the big screen July 24.
