UPDATE: Fox Searchlight has announced that The Grand Budapest Hotel will be released on March, 7 2014!

Film lovers rejoice! Well, Wes Anderson lovers at least.

We’ve all been on high alert after Moonrise Kingdom as Anderson quickly announced that he was already working on his following feature, The Grand Budapest Hotel. Cast rumors hit the net early and plot details were scarce but one thing was certain: any fans of Anderson’s work, or those even aware of his prowess, knew that his 8th full-length feature was buzzworthy and highly anticipated.

After months of speculation and awaiting something definitive, Wes Anderson has finally revealed the first poster image for the film, which not only completely cements the cast list involved but also a release year. It seemed impossible for the film to see a release at the end of 2013 and that notion is accurate as the film’s poster very clearly states 2014 at the bottom. As far as the cast, well, what would you expect from Anderson other than anything completely stacked with well-known talent? The Grand Budapest Hotel will star Ralph Fiennes, Edward Norton, F. Murray Abraham, Saoirse Ronan, Adrien Brody, Jeff Goldblum, Tilda Swinton, Jude Law, and Willem Dafoe, among many more popular actors including Anderson staples Owen Wilson, Jason Schwartzman and the great Bill Murray.

As if all of this wasn’t newsworthy enough, Anderson will be releasing the film’s first trailer this Thursday, October 17. Whether this will be a full trailer or a teaser of sorts is unknown, but frankly, either one will do just fine for the time being. Check back here on Thursday to witness it in all its glory and be sure to check out the beautiful poster for The Grand Budapest Hotel after the jump along with a brief synopsis of the film.

The Grand Budapest Hotel tells of a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars and his friendship with a young employee who becomes his trusted protégé. The story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting, the battle for an enormous family fortune and the slow and then sudden upheavals that transformed Europe during the first half of the 20th century.
