As an unapologetic fan of Wes Anderson films, I have been looking forward to the release of his upcoming movie The French Dispatch. Although we still have to wait until July 24, 2020 to see it, the trailer and a fun illustrated poster by Spanish artist Javi Aznarez are now out. The film, which tells the story of a fictional magazine, is very loosely based on The New Yorker.
The French Dispatch is about a magazine that began as a series of travel columns in a Sunday supplement to an American newspaper that evolved into a popular publication, based in a fictional French city called Ennui-sur-Blasé. The stories in the film revolve around the editor-in-chief of the magazine and his quirky journalists.
