Hint: It's very symmetrical, and eerily beautiful.

The film trailer, a mashup of Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel and Kubrick's The Shining (based on the book by Stephen King) was created by YouTuber Steven Ramsdem, after he noticed both directors frame their shots in a similar way.

The mashup naturally features some of the iconic actors from the films, including Jack Nicholson, Bill Murray and Ralph Fiennes.

And of course, Tony Revolori as the hotel's Lobby Boy.
