Watch the masterful trailer for Wes Anderson’s The French Dispatch

Timothée Chalamet! Naked! In a bath!

After releasing the first images of the film yesterday, Wes Anderson has finally dropped the trailer for his upcoming film, The French Dispatch.

Perfectly symmetrical, the trailer opens in a printing room and quickly introduces protagonist Arthur Howitzer Jr. (Bill Murray), an American journalist working at a publication called The French Dispatch, which offers “a factual, weekly report on the subjects of world politics, the arts – high and low – and diverse stories of human interest”.

As the two-minute clip continues, we are introduced to the film’s three storylines, which bring to life a collection of tales published in The French Dispatch: “The Concrete Masterpiece”, the Timothée Chalamet-starring “Revisions to a Manifesto” – which is based on the May 1968 protests in France, and features the actor in the bath – and “The Private Dining Room”.

The film also stars Saoirse Ronan, Tilda Swinton, Willem Dafoe, Jason Schwartzman, Léa Seydoux, Kate Winslet, Elisabeth Moss, Christoph WaltzFrances McDormand, Benicio Del Toro, Adrien Brody, Rupert Friend, and more.

Described as “a love letter to journalists”, the film is set to be released in the US on July 24.
