Today we have the trailer for the new Coen brothers movie "Hail, Caesar," starring George Clooney, Josh Brolin, Ralph Fiennes, Channing Tatum, Scarlett Johansson, Tilda Swinton, Frances McDormand and Jonah Hill. Check it out below and watch the film in select theaters on February 5th, 2016. Plot: In 1950s Hollywood, Eddie Mannix is Capital Pictures' head of physical production and, most importantly, the studio fixer. His job is to maintain the clean reputation of the company and its stars, keeping them free from controversy. Mannix is advised that studio star Baird Whitlock has disappeared after not showing up for work on the current production of "Hail Caesar, a Tale of Christ's Life." He initially believes Whitlock has been drinking, but receives a call from a group of communists who claim to have kidnapped him and want a ransom. As Mannix gathers the cash, he simultaneously deals with an unhappy director who is working on another project, »
The trailer for Hail, Caesar! only gives away so much of the actual plot involved in the film, but it certainly makes clear the Coen brothers’ style of screwball storytelling.
It also showcases the role George Clooney will be playing, and it’s in (for me) his best area. While Clooney is obviously competent in a wide variety of roles, I find him easiest to watch when he’s working in exactly this sort of off-beat style. Playing a famous actor, who perhaps has a lot of problems – a la My Faovrite Year, if the trailer can be believed – Clooney looks brilliant as a golden era star who is at least as much of a liability as asset.
The trailer also shows off the worldcraft that the Coens are famous for, and if nothing else, the film takes us right inside period Hollywood, complete with backstage problems and studio deals. »

As Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak in the new biopic “Steve Jobs,” Seth Rogen is the latest funnyman to chase Oscar glory by turning serious. Rogen is following in the foosteps of of Jonah Hill, his co-star in the 2011 laffer “This is the End." Hill got his start as a lovable goofball in “Superbad” (2007) and “Get Him to the Greek” (2010) before earning Supporting Actor nominations for “Moneyball” (2011) and “The Wolf of Wall Street” (2013). Those films marked a departure for Hill in both style and tone. We had underestimated him in both those derbies and could be doing the same with Rogen now. While he sits at 17th on our Best Supporting Actor chart, he could well be boosted in the ranks by the success of "Steve Jobs." It won over both critics and audiences last weekend, scoring 87 at Rotten Tomatoes and 82 at MetaCritic while doing boffo business in limited release. ..." »
The list of names that'll be in the credits for Hail, Caesar! is, to put it mildly, ridiculous. Josh Brolin George Clooney Scarlett Johansson Channing Tatum Ralph Fiennes Jonah Hill Tild Swinton David Krumholtz Frances McDormand Clancy Brown Fisher Stevens Robert Picardo Alden Ehrenreich Alex Karpovsky Dolph Lundgren Oh, and there'll be those written and directed by credits for Joel and Ethan Coen.

You can (almost) always count on Joel and Ethan Coen for a darkly funny time at the movie theater, and their latest, Hail, Caesar!, already has us laughing. First of all, there's the cast: George Clooney, Channing Tatum, Josh Brolin, Scarlett Johansson, Ralph Fiennes, Jonah Hill, Tilda Swinton, and, of course, Frances McDormand. Then there's the plot: the biggest movie star in Hollywood (Clooney) is kidnapped during the production of an enormously expensive movie. Did we mention it's set in the '50s and that at some point, Tatum is dancing with another man's butt in his face? The movie is out on Feb. 5 of next year; stay tuned for more details! »

Either you're already sold by this project or you're not, and if you are not, we assume it's because you just arrived on this planet and you don't know who any of those people are and why seeing all of those names in the same place is so exciting. But should you happen to...

It remains an event each and every time there is a new film by Joel and Ethan Coen. At this point, I feel bad for ever having doubted them. I may not have liked "The Ladykillers" or "Intolerable Cruelty" at all, and it may have felt like they had run out of gas in a major way, but thankfully they caught a second wind that has led to a rich and varied list of films over the last few years. What I love about this first look at "Hail Caesar!" is the era they're playing with. I love the studio system of the '50s as a backdrop, and there is so much about the trailer that delights me that I feel like it's going to be one of those Coen movies we can revisit over and over and over and still find new things in it each time.

The Coen Brothers are two filmmakers whose films are eagerly anticipated by cinema-goers with each and every new and wonderful film they churn out. Lucky for us, they work rather frequently, and next February will see the release of Hail, Caesar!—about a leading man (George Clooney) who gets stolen by “The Future” and the Hollywood fixer (Josh Brolin) who fights to get him back.
The trailer promises the Coens’ signature brand of humour, ensuring lots of laughs—it looks to be their first true comedy since Burn After Reading, though you could argue that even the saddest of Coen Brothers films has its fair share of dark humour. If you want to see Channing Tatum as a dancing sailor and »

Hollywood movie-star abductions, crises of faith, film-within-a-film shenanigans, and Channing Tatum as a tap-dancing sailor: That's the high-brow/low-brow recipe for Hail Caesar!, the Coen Brothers' upcoming showbiz comedy set to hit theaters on February 5th, 2016.
The freewheeling first trailer offers a glimpse of a classic Coen plot: 1950s studio fixer Eddie Mannix finds himself overwhelmed on the set of Capitol Pictures' latest "prestige picture" Hail Caesar!, when dimwit leading man Baird Whitlock (George Clooney) is abducted and held on a $100,000 ransom by a mysterious group called "The Future."

The first trailer has arrived online for Hail, Caesar!, the new film from the Coen Brothers, and you can view it in the player below…
The first effort from the Coens’ since 2013’s Inside Llewyn Davis, the new film is described as a “musical comedy” and sees a hot-short studio “fixer” (played by Josh Brolin) have to try to find the star of a new historical epic (George Clooney) after he is kidnapped.
As usual, the film promises the usual amount of Coens magic, with a hugely impressive cast to boot. In addition to Brolin and Clooney, both of whom have worked with the directors before, the film also stars Scarlett Johansson (Avengers: Age of Ultron), Tilda Swinton (A Bigger Splash), Frances McDormand (Fargo), Alden Ehrenreich (Stoker), Channing Tatum (Foxcatcher), Jonah Hill (The Wolf of Wall Street), Peter Stormare (Fargo), Dolph Lundgren (The Expendables) and Ralph Fiennes (The Grand Budapest Hotel).

After offering an introspective look at a fictional folk singer with Inside Llewyn Davis – arguably the pair’s best effort in some time – Joel and Ethan Coen are bound for the 1950s with Hail, Caesar!, a period piece that mixes elements of comedy and musical drama and sets it against the fabled Golden Age of Hollywood.
Charting the day-to-day life of a studio fixer operating at a time when business was booming in Tinsel Town, the Coen Brothers have assembled an appropriately starry cast for the feature, and today’s first trailer simply pulses with a snappy, crackling energy as it showcases the high-profile production of the title movie within the actual film.
From George Clooney’s Roman general fluffing his lines to the camp story driving the project, there will be ample light-hearted jokes littered throughout, just don’t call Hail, Caesar! a musical comedy.

The Coen Brothers are continuing their usual pattern of following a serious drama with a bawdy comedy. This time their follow-up to "Inside Llewyn Davis" is the Hollywood caper film "Hail Caesar!" which, not unexpectedly, boasts a massive cast and looks just downright spectacular.
Set during the golden age of Hollywood when the big studio systems fiercely protected their stars, Josh Brolin plays a private detective turned movie company fixer who tracks down and covers up scandals among contracted players and directors.
His most recent cast involves the disappearance of a big-time actor (George Clooney) mid-way through a shoot. Scarlett Johansson, Channing Tatum, Ralph Fiennes, Jonah Hill, Alden Ehrenreich, Tilda Swinton, Frances McDormand, Clancy Brown, Christopher Lambert, Robert Picardo and Dolph Lundgren also star in the film which opens February 5th.
