The Grand Budapest Hotel trailer
“The Grand Budapest Hotel was shot in three different aspect ratios: 1.33, 1.85, and 2.35:1. The movie jumps through three time periods; the different aspect ratios tell viewers where they are in the timeline.” -Excerpt from The Wes Anderson Collection by Matt Zoller Seitz.
