Fox Searchlight has shared a new clip from Wes Anderson‘s forthcoming film, The French Dispatch.
The movie premiered at Cannes on Monday (July 12th). Now, we finally have another preview of the highly anticipated black-and-white film. The flick will star some pretty huge actors. Timothée Chalamet, Tilda Swinton, Frances McDormand, Bill Murray, Jeffrey Wright, Owen Wilson, Benicio del Toro, Adrien Brody, and many more star in the film.
The new clip pulls from the second of three main stories in the movie. “Mrs. McDormand is Lucinda Krementz, an American journalist who lives in France, and Monsieur Chalamet is called Zeffirelli,” Anderson tells Vanity Fair. “He’s a student and Krementz is covering the student protests that have sort of erupted.” In the clip, Chalamet writes a manifesto that’s full of errors, all from the confines of his bathtub.
Watch the clip and revisit the trailer for The French Dispatch below.
About the film
The French Dispatch takes place in a fictional French town in the 20th century. The film revolves around a foreign outpost of an American newspaper called the Evening Sun. Ultimately, it tells the tale of the drama among the editorial staff of the paper.
“The French Dispatch is the European edition of The Liberty, Kansas, Evening Sun – a factual, weekly report on the subjects of world politics, the arts (high and low), fashion, fancy cuisine/fine drink, and diverse stories of human interest set in faraway quartiers,” the official plot synopsis reads. “On the death of the editor-in-chief, the editorial staff decides to publish a last, memorial edition highlighting the three best stories which appeared over the 10-year existence of the magazine. The stories involve an artist sentenced to live imprisonment for a double homicide, student riots, and a kidnapping resolved by a chef.”
The French Dispatch is out on October 22nd.
