George Clooney and Channing Tatum Revel in the Idiocy of their Hail, Caesar! Characters

1 hour ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

George Clooney has been in Hollywood long enough for people to know he's no dummy - but he sure plays great ones in movies for the Coen Brothers. The actor's latest is the dimwitted movie star Baird Whitlock in the showbiz satire Hail, Caesar, opposite a slew of A-listers: Channing Tatum, Josh Brolin, Scarlett Johansson, Jonah Hill and Tilda Swinton. Whitlock is, in Clooney's words, "a blazing idiot." "There's no bulb at all," Clooney tells People of the character being less-than-bright. "That's how un-bright these bulbs are. I've never played a character with any integrity or any intelligence in any »

Tilda Swinton and Neal Huff in Moonrise Kingdom

Neal Huff, who plays Phil Saviano in Tom McCarthy's Spotlight, co-written by Josh Singer, discussed working with Wes Anderson on The Grand Budapest Hotel with Mathieu Amalric's sister's head, over breakfast at Cafe Orlin. We talked about Moonrise Kingdom with a thread of Bob Balaban to Kent Jones' documentary Hitchcock/Truffaut, which screens at this year's Glasgow Film Festival. Plus a family connection to Kimberly Levin's Runoff and an encounter with Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds.

Anne-Katrin Titze: Let's start with Wes Anderson. You said you were in Berlin while filming The Grand Budapest Hotel?

Channing Tatum & Joseph Gordon-Levitt Teaming Up For An R-Rated Musical Comedy

23 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"Hail, Caesar!" opens in theaters today, and I'd venture that by Monday morning, everyone will be talking about Channing Tatum's big musical number. You've gotten a tease of it with the official clip released below, but that's just a slice of the utterly fantastic, unabashedly joyous song-and-dance sequence that arguably steals the entire movie. It's fantastic stuff, and is why this bit of news is particularly exciting. Read More: Coen Brothers' 'Hail, Caesar!' Starring Josh Brolin, Tilda Swinton, Channing Tatum, And More THR reports that Tatum and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are teaming up for a musical comedy. Jgl hatched the idea for the movie. While no plot details are being released, it will reportedly center on two pilots, and Universal will back the R-rated movie penned by Michael Bacall ("21 Jump Street"). So, to recap: an R-rated musical comedy starring Tatum and Gordon-Levitt. Damn. Tatum and Jgl have a decent back catalogue together ("Stop-Loss, »

Movie Review: Hail, Caesar!

5 February 2016 9:50 AM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

The Coen brothers first started publicly discussing their idea for Hail, Caesar! over a decade ago, but the resulting film feels jauntily tossed together in a fraction of that time. In some ways that’s a good thing. The film has a loose comic energy that allows it to slip easily from lengthy sketches to plottier sequences. But it’s also lacking in coherence. The Coens seem unsure if they’re making a statement about old Hollywood or just riffing on it, and audiences will likely become confused as to whether the brothers’ treatment of classic cinema is delivered laughingly or lovingly.

The 1950s-set film follows Eddie Mannix (Josh Brolin), a movie studio “fixer” whose already hectic existence is burdened by the disappearance of Baird Whitlock (George Clooney), the bumbling star of a Biblical epic called Hail, Caesar! Baird, it turns out, has been kidnapped by Communists, whose plans for »

Sign of the Cross: The Coen Bros. Revisit the Backlot Desires of Hollywood’s Golden Era

The Coen Bros., back with their first title since 2013’s Cannes darling Inside Llewyn Davis, step back to an even earlier era with Hail, Caesar!, a 1950s set allegory parallelizing movie studio heads with their supernatural equivalent—God. A rather stressful day unfolds on the backlot of Capitol Pictures, where a leading star currently set to film the final, important speech in a Biblical epic is kidnapped by a serene group of Communist writers. Meanwhile, the general cadre of hungry gossip columnists, disgruntled auteurs, and budding celebrities must be continuously juggled and groomed by the studio’s omnipotent figurehead. It’s an ideal environment for the duo, who seem to be consistently recapitulating earlier films and eras, like their rehash of True Grit (2010). There’s something about this latest effort which hints at the »

Film Review: ‘Hail, Caesar!’ is Coen Bros. Excellence for Movie Lovers

5 February 2016 8:15 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Writer/directors Joel and Ethan Coen love the movies, and that love is magnificently played out in “Hail, Caesar!” As they riff on religion, geopolitics and 1950s morality, while wonderfully celebrating and spoofing an era in movies that will never be again, the Coens abide and deliver.

Rating: 5.0/5.0

This film is a celebration, couched in references to other studio-era stars, the communist scare of McCarthyism (the Coens do it better than the film “Trumbo,” which was directly about that witch hunt), and the odd personalities that people once had, as celebrity culture was something still being invented. Josh Brolin is in the middle of the madness, as a over-scheduled studio head whose days spent as a “fixer” are hilarious as they are defining. The film works on all levels – as comedy, social commentary and allegory – but it never is pretentious, and prefers a light touch over any other type of narrative. »

Review: George Clooney, Channing Tatum and A-Listers Galore Have Fun Spoofing Old Hollywood in Hail, Caesar!

4 February 2016 8:45 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Ah, old Hollywood cinema: the glamour, the stars, the back-lot romances - all fake, of course. But that’s what made it grand. The Coen brothers' latest is a paean to the 1950s studio system, with Josh Brolin running herd as Eddie Mannix, the fixer on the lot. It’s a rough day for Eddie, what with aquatic actress DeeAnna Moran (Scarlett Johansson) getting knocked up, a gossip columnist (Tilda Swinton) nosing around and biblical-epic star Baird Whitlock (George Clooney) going missing. It's all nuts, and the actors couldn't be having more fun, including Ralph Fiennes as an exacting auteur, »

Studio Canal UK has just put out a new clip for the latest from the acclaimed Italian director Luca Guadagnino. Check it out above. The erotic thriller film stars Tilda Swinton as rock 'n roll legend vacationing with her filmmaker boyfriend (Matthias Schoenaerts) on the volcanic island of Pantelleria.

Next week, American audiences will get to choose between "Zoolander 2" and "Deadpool" at the box office. If you're a certain kind of movie lover, that's not much of a choice at all. But overseas, Luca Guadagnino's "A Bigger Splash" is opening, and even from it's conception, the picture — which stars Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, Matthias Schoenaerts, and Dakota Johnson, is coming from a movie lover's heart.

'Hail, Caesar!' Review: Coen Brothers Bore with Golden Age Satire

4 February 2016 9:18 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Hail, Caesar!, the latest opus from Ethan and Joel Coen, is a bit of a letdown. It works as a clever satire of 50s Hollywood, but falls decidedly flat in insufferably dull stretches. There's no lack of star power or panache in the film. A-listers galore and another fine collaboration with brilliant cinematographer Roger Deakins gives Hail, Caesar! an accurate look. It's the uneven humor that dribs and drabs like molasses. Moments of slight hilarity lose focus as scenes play too long. It's almost as if the Coen Brothers were so enamored with their cast they forgot to trim the fat. Lesser filmmakers may be applauded for this effort, but Hail, Caesar! is a bunt from two of the greats.

The story takes place over the course of a day in 1951 Hollywood. Capitol Studios fixer Eddie Mannix (Josh Brolin) has an avalanche of crisis to juggle. Baird Whitlock (George Clooney »

A Bigger Splash director: ‘Italian cinema is mostly a bureau for tourism’

4 February 2016 8:45 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Luca Guadagnino’s latest film sees the writer-director reunited with Tilda Swinton, this time playing a recuperating rocker. And while he has fond words for the Rolling Stones, who supply some of the tunes, he’s less forgiving about actors, scriptwriters and the Italian film industry

Luca Guadagnino simply cannot sit still. One moment his legs are sticking out frontwards, the next they are hooked over the arm of his chair. You can only conclude that his intense writhiness must be something to do with his revving-engine thought processes, as one pronouncement after another tumbles out of him.

You need to follow the agenda of the film, not a personal agenda, or that of the studio, or, worst of all, of the actors

The Coen Brothers Want to Make a Sequel to This Movie

4 February 2016 8:09 AM, PST | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

Writer-directors Joel and Ethan Coen are not in the business of making sequels, as much as their fans (and Tara Reid) would love to see the continuing adventures of the Dude in a Big Lebowski follow-up. Their films are so immensely colorful when it comes to their typically large ensembles that it's impossible not to want to see more from any one character. For instance, in their latest, Hail, Caesar!, you could spin off an entire movie about Tilda Swinton's twin gossip columnists or...
