Today the short film by Wes Anderson titled “Hotel Chevalier” has debuted on iTunes as a free download.
The 13-minute short had originally been attached before The Darjeeling Limited as it made its round at the festivals. But it won’t been shown in theaters when the film opens this weekend.
Instead, the studio has decided to separate it out and use it as viral marketing for the film; because well… Owen Wilson isn’t exactly going to be on Letterman plugging it.
“Hotel Chevalier” features the relationship of one of the main characters of Darjeeling (Jason Schwartzman) and showcase the same awkward style that we’re used to seeing from Anderson. It also apparently explains the cameo from Natalie Portman in the film.
Oh, and Natalie is naked in this.
