Patrick Willems should be contacted immediately if Wes Anderson needs a new cinematographer. The man published a love letter to what seems like it would be bitterly opposite film worlds with one fantastic video.
Willems wondered what would happen if Wes Anderson directed an X-Men movie!
The “trailer” is below and it is fantastic. We get Willems’ own version of “Magneto,” “Professor X” and even “Wolverine.” For fans of both The Grand Budapest Hotel filmmaker and the Marvel comic book/movie series, prepare to marvel at this guy’s talent.
Watch X-Men online and be sure to watch The Grand Budapest Hotel online and it’s easy to see that his take on what would happen if Anderson helmed an X-Men movie is nothing short of sublimely perfect.
Willems gets Anderson’s look, feel and even his quirky characters thrust in the most unusual of plot situations mojo that has fueled his filmmaking since Bottle Rocket.
Anderson is one of those directors who we would watch anything he does. Who else is on that list?
