Wes Anderson’s new film, The French Dispatch, has been delayed

The Timothée Chalamet and Saoirse Ronan-starring movie will now arrive in October

In disappointing, if not-particularly-surprising news, Wes Anderson’s star-lined new film, The French Dispatch, has been delayed until later in the year. Originally scheduled to arrive on July 24, its new release date is October 16.

Obviously, this means that we’ll have to wait months longer to see Timothée Chalamet in the bath. Also: Bill Murray as a journalist working on the eponymous magazine in a fictional French town, and all of the other cast members tangled up in a collection of tales, including Saoirse Ronan, Tilda Swinton, Frances McDormand, and Elisabeth Moss

Of course, The French Dispatch isn’t the only disruption due to the coronavirus pandemic. Cannes Film Festival has also been postponed, while music festivals and tours have been pushed back, fashion weeks cancelled, and galleries closed across the world.

In the meantime, you can watch (and rewatch) the trailer below, or browse Wes Anderson’s isolation recommendations.
