Wes Anderson hasn't released a movie since the charmingly melancholy The Grand Budapest Hotel in 2014, but he's hard at work on his untitled ninth feature film, a stop-motion movie about dogs due out in 2018 (and featuring the vocal talents of Bryan Cranston, Ed Norton, Bob Balaban, Jeff Goldblum, and of course, Bill Murray).
But sensing that the world is thoroughly lacking in quirky escapist entertainment in these dark times, Anderson teamed up with H&M for a Christmas-themed advertisement. The four-minute long short, titled "Come Together," brings back fond memories of the highly underrated The Darjeeling Limited—complete with Adrian Brody starring as Conductor Ralph.
This is far from the first time Anderson has dipped his finely-manicured toes in the commercial advertisement waters: he previously shot short films and ads for the likes of Prada, American Express, AT&T, Hyundai, Stella Artois and SoftBank. Just think of them as shots of bespoke espresso to tide you over until the real deal. You can check a few of those out below.
Also, because it is always worth revisiting, you can also check out the instant classic Saturday Night Live Wes Anderson parody, The Midnight Coterie Of Sinister Intruders, below.
