Watch the first trailer for Wes Anderson’s The French Dispatch here

The French Dispatch is the latest film from Wes Anderson and it’s coming to cinemas in Australia in 2020. The cast includes some frequent Anderson collaborators like Bill Murray, Adrien Brody, Owen Wilson, Tilda Swinton, Frances McDormand and Jason Schwartzman. In addition, it features Timothée Chalamet, Léa Seydoux, Lyna Khoudri, Jeffrey Wright, Mathieu Amalric and Stephen Park.

In a post on Indiewire, an unnamed source close to the production called it “a love letter to journalists set at an outpost of an American newspaper in 20th-century Paris and centres on three storylines.”

The French Dispatch

In an interview, given in French, to Charente Libre in April 2019, Anderson said;

The story is not easy to explain. [It’s about an] American journalist based in France [who] creates his magazine. It is more a portrait of this man, of this journalist who fights to write what he wants to write.

t’s not a movie about freedom of the press, but when you talk about reporters you also talk about what’s going on in the real world.

Today, the first trailer for The French Dispatch is available and can be viewed below. In addition, 20th Century Studios has released a handful of stills.

The French Dispatch was filmed on location in France and wrapped in March 2019.

It is coming to Australian cinemas in 2020.
