We’ve already seen an excellent trailer for the unmistakably Wes Anderson-directed dark comedy The Grand Budapest Hotel.
If that peek at the movie wasn’t enough to sate your appetite, another trailer has been released introducing us to the large cast of characters you’ll see in the film, as well as the many recognizable (and sometimes not so recognizable) faces who are playing them.
Fox Searchlight Pictures has released the first trailer for Wes Anderson‘s The Grand Budapest Hotel. The comedy-drama centers on a hotel concierge recounting events in one of 20 Century Europe’s most prestigious hotels.
The trailer is lighthearted and full of all kinds of quirky humor that we should all be accustomed to when watching a Wes Anderson film. And that is not a bad thing, because we get to see Ralph Fiennes in a rare comedic role. Hit the jump to see the full trailer.

The DVD and Blu-ray release of Robert Rodriguez‘s much-anticipated reboot, Predators (Read: Movie Review: Predators), doesn’t come until October 19, but details on the discs and what features they will offer have been released by 20th Century Fox to allow you some insight into which you’ll want to pick up when the time comes.
The movie takes place on a Predator inhabited planet, where a group of Earth’s most-deadly and dangerous killers — soldiers, murderers, crime lords, special forces — have all been brought there as worthy prey for the ultimate hunter species. It returns us to the fun we had watching in the 1987 original Arnold Schwarzenegger film, which had since been lost in Alien vs. Predators and AvP: Requiem.
The NimrÃ³d Antal directed movie stars Adrien Brody, Danny Trejo, Topher Grace, Alice Braga, Oleg Taktarov, Walt Goggins, Louis Ozawa Changchien, Mahershalalhashbaz Ali, and Laurence Fishburn.

If at first you don’t succeed, reboot, and reboot again. That seems to be Marvel’s approach to recent comic book films that have not turned out so well. Daredevil, Ghost Rider, and Fantastic Four have all been getting reboot talk lately and we now have our first set of proposed casting rumors for the Fantastic Four film.
Screenrant has Adrien Brody (who has also been rumored for the upcoming Ant-Man film) and Jonathan Rhys Meyers both in the running for Reed Richards aka Mr. Fantastic.
Meanwhile, Comic Book Movie tells us that Fox has been looking at Kevin Pennington (90210) to play Johnny Storm aka the Human Torch and Amber Heard (Zombieland and Pineapple Express) to play Sue Storm aka the Invisible Woman.
