Trailer Bulletin: Wes Anderson's Darjeeling LimitedWes Anderson's perfectly quirky films (Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou) should rejoice at the news that the trailer for his latest perfectly quirky film, The Darjeeling Limited, is now online!
The Darjeeling Limited tells the story of a trio of brothers (Adrien Brody, Owen Wilson, and Jason Schwartzman) embarking on a spiritual journey through India on a train called the Darjeeling Limited. Judging from the trailer (and poster!), we can expect more of Anderson's signature style, if a bit tamer than in his last endeavor, The Life Aquatic.
Anderson's films have always borne remarkable soundtracks -- using Seu Jorge's Bowie covers in The Life Aquatic, "These Days" by Nico in The Royal Tenanbaums. The Darjeeling trailer closes with The Kinks' "Strangers," and if that song doesn't warm your wistful heart, then you simply have icewater running through your veins.
Anderson, whose past co-scripting endeavors with Wilson on Bottle Rocket and Rushmore arguably yielded his best work, co-wrote Darjeeling with star Schwartzman and fellow filmmaker Roman Coppola. Coppola also appears in the film.
Though you can't really tell from the trailer, the film also features Natalie Portman, Camilla Rutherford, newcomer Amara Karan, and Anderson favorite Anjelica Huston.

The Darjeeling Limited will be released September 28 and will open the 45th New York Film Festival.
