Wes Anderson Releases Intricate First Poster for ‘The French Dispatch’
You’d need multiple hands to count all the stars in Wes Anderson’s The French Dispatch. Luckily, the first poster for the movie, released Tuesday, painstakingly lists them all, with accompanying cartoons for some.
The film, writer, director, and producer Wes Anderson’s 10th feature, will be released on July 24, 2020 and is backed by Searchlight Pictures (formerly Fox Searchlight Pictures). The French Dispatch of the film is a fictional magazine inspired by The New Yorker and the poster’s magazine cover-style reflects this influence.
Among the character cartoons are the images of Tilda Swinton, Frances McDormand, Bill Murray and Jeffry Wright at work with books and typewriters, Adrien Brody contemplating piles of cash, Benicio Del Toro painting, and Timothee Chalamet taking a bath. The rest of the star-studded cast includes Owen Wilson, Liev Schreiber, Elisabeth Moss, Eward Norton, Willem Dafoe, Saoirse Ronan, and so much more.
A first look at the film is set to release soon, expect a bright color palette and lots of fun.
