Any year that we get a new film from Wes Anderson is a good one. We’ve been waiting in anticipation for news on his new film The French Dispatch ever since it was first announced and today we finally got the first official trailer for the highly anticipated film.

The film has a ridiculously star-studded cast, typical of an Anderson film, starring Benicio del Toro, Frances McDormand, Jeffrey Wright, Adrien Brody, Tilda Swinton, Timothée Chalamet, Léa Seydoux, Owen Wilson, Mathieu Amalric, Lyna Khoudri, Steve Park, and Bill Murray

The official synopsis of the film is “love letter to journalists set in an outpost of an American newspaper in a fictional 20th Century French city and brings to life a collection of stories published in ‘The French Dispatch’ magazine” that is apparently based off of The New Yorker.

The trailer has arrived and only made us that much more excited for the film, which screams Wes Anderson in all the best way. It’s complemented by a cover of Christophe’s song “Aline,” but sung in English possibly by Jarvis Cocker – but that isn’t confirmed yet.

The rest of the cast is rounded out by Liev Schreiber, Elisabeth Moss, Edward Norton, Schwartzman, Willem Dafoe, Saoirse Ronan, Christoph Waltz, and Anjelica Huston. Sheesh.

The French Dispatch will open on July 24th via Searchlight Pictures. Enjoy the trailer below.
