LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Wes Anderson fans are getting their first look at the filmmaker’s next movie.

The first trailer for “The French Dispatch” was released Wednesday morning and it’s packed full of famous faces.

The film’s stars include Benicio del Toro, Adrien Brody, Tilda Swinton, Léa Seydoux, Frances McDormand, Timothée Chalamet, Lyna Khoudri, Jeffrey Wright, Mathieu Amalric, Stephen Park, Bill Murray and Owen Wilson, among others.

Described as a love letter to journalists, Searchlight Pictures says the film will bring to life a collection of stories from the final issue of an American magazine published in a fictional 20th-century French city.

The film is loosely inspired by The New Yorker, which Anderson has been a big fan of since his adolescence, according to the publication.

The movie is set to be released on July 24, 2020.
