Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel Will Be Awesome Because Bill Murray

This is going to be a good year. How do we know that, you ask? Well, because any year that Wes Anderson releases a new movie is a good year in our books. His latest, is the sprawling adventure yarn The Grand Budapest Hotel, which marks the first time Anderson is working from a script he wrote solo, without frequent collaborators like Jason Schwartzman, Owen Wilson, Noah Baumbach, or Roman Coppola.
But, fear not, Wes Anderson acolytes. Schwartzman and Wilson are featured in the film, which is about the exploits of a concierge (Ralph Fiennes) at the titular swanky hotel, as are the rest of Anderson's beloved band of misfits, including Edward Norton, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Harvey Keitel, Mathieu Amalric, Tilda Swinton, Tom Wilkinson, Jeff Goldblum, and Jude Law.

But, no Wes Anderson movie would be complete without the indelible Bill Murray, who has appeared in all of the auteur's efforts since Rushmore, and who stars here as the mysterious M. Ivan. In this newly released clip, Murray's character helps Fiennes' Gustave H. and his lobby boy (Tony Revolori) flee the scene from something perilous. Unfortunately, we have to wait another month to find out exactly what that is. The Grand Budapest Hotel hits theaters on March 7, but you can check out the tantalizing new clip below. (Vulture)
