Fresh off The French Dispatch‘s nine-minute standing ovation at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival, Searchlight has shared a new clip from the Wes Anderson film with Timothée Chalamet and Frances McDormand.
Entitled “Let’s Start With The Typos,” the one-and-a-half-minute clip features a bathroom interaction between Lucinda Krementz (McDormand) and Zeffirelli (Chalamet) in the bathroom. Mrs. Krementz can be seen cleaning herself up after getting hit by tear gas, and she finds Zeffirelli in the bathtub writing his manifesto. The young man asks the more experienced journalist to proofread his work, assuming that she will already be impressed with the first draft, but is met with real criticism involving how “damp” the work is (physically and metaphorically) and the typos.
The cast, which included Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, Tilda Swinton, Adrien Brody, Stephen Park and Benicio Del Toro and composer Alexandre Desplat pulled up at the premiere in a shiny gold party bus. Following the showing, Anderson said, “I hope we come back with another one soon. Thank you.”
Watch the new clip above. The French Dispatch premieres October 22.
