There will be a 'Grand Budapest Hotel' cruise

Break out your twee swimsuit.

There will be a The Grand Budapest Cruise of sorts, with Grand Budapest Hotel director Wes Anderson on a week-long cruise that will include a screening of the film, as well as a Q&A with Anderson and cast members including Tilda Swinton and Jason Schwartzman, as well as frequent writing collaborator Roman Coppola.

The cruise will depart from Brooklyn (duh) to London, and really seems like a missed opportunity for a Life Aquatic tie-in. Of course, celebrity cruises are nothing new: There are regularly boy band cruises, Broadway performer cruises, and random celebrity cameo-fests. But — on the heels of news that the New Kids on the Block will have a show aboard a cruise ship — we have to ask the question: Would you rather be trapped on a ship with the New Kids or the Budapest crew?

So it is appropriate that star will be lending a hand to the nonprofit cinema Cinefamily by attending today’s 2nd Annual Fantastic, Elastic 24-Hour Holiday Telethon held at the organization’s home, the Silent Movie Theatre in Los Angeles.

Downey isn’t just attending the event. At 1 p.m., he will be opening a time capsule left for him by parties unknown that was discovered under the Silent Movie Theatre’s projector. So how exactly did the folks at Cinefamily convince the blockbuster star to turn up? “We asked him,” laughs Cinefamily cofounder Hadrian Belove. “Seriously, we asked via friends-of-friends-of friends saying, ‘We found this time capsule, could you come by and open it for a telethon?’ And he said, ‘Yes, I can do it at 1.’ And I said, ‘I guess we’re starting the telethon at 1!’” READ FULL STORY
