You Taking the 'Grand Budapest Hotel' Victory Cruise?

Grand Budapest Hotel cruiseWes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel is not only one of the best films of the year, it is now his highest grossing domestic ($51.6 million) and worldwide ($140.5 million) release of all-time. How is he going to celebrate? Well, along with Grand Budapest co-conspirators -- Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman and Roman Coppola -- he will board the cruise ship Queen Mary 2 on June 13, traveling from New York to London.

Passengers can purchase tickets ranging from $1,298 to $18,948 as the cruise will play host to a special screening of Grand Budapest, followed by a Q&A session with the filmmaker and cast.

That ticket price is way too rich for my blood, but I'm sure some hoity toity types will surely have a good time. [THR]

    That's a fantastic idea but i can't see me on the trip unless i use Kickstarter.

    It should be on the Belafonte.

    No Bill Murray and no Ralph Fiennes? No deal. I doubt anyone's paying top dollar to meet Roman Coppola.

    • Kingsley_Zissou

      My guess is that Roman's there primarily because he's co-writing Wes' next movie and they'll work on that during the cruise.

    Sorry guys we lost the copy of The Grand Budapest Hotel, so instead we're going to be playing A Glimpse inside the Mind of Charles Swan.
