Hello again, dear readers. This past week saw the release of Guillermo del Toro’s new horror film Crimson Peak, which I’m very excited about. In the meantime, I’ve got another trailer for a 2016 movie to show you. Now let’s take a look at the first trailer for Hail, Caesar!, the next film from the Coen Brothers.
Premise: Eddie Mannix (Josh Brolin) is a Hollywood “fixer” helping the production of the upcoming epic film Hail, Caesar! starring Baird Whitlock (George Clooney). But when Whitlock is kidnapped by a group calling themselves “The Future,” Mannix is the one in charge of collecting the $100,000 ransom and rescuing him.
My take: There’s something I just love about the golden age of Hollywood, that period from the late 1920s through the late 1950s. And I love movies about that era of filmmaking. And that’s just what we’re getting with Hail, »

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. »

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.

We're sure we don't have to say anything else at this point. 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...

All hail Hail, Caesar!—finally a movie about making movies that doesn't take itself too seriously! Universal Pictures released a full-length trailer for Joel and Ethan Coen's upcoming comedy Friday, and with a star-studded cast including the likes of George Clooney, Josh Brolin, Scarlett Johansson, Channing Tatum, Johan Hill, Tilda Swinton, Alden Ehrenreich, Ralph Fiennes and Frances McDormand (whew), it lives up to its big name. Hail Caesar! is set in Hollywood in the 1950s, and as you can see in the clip above, Eddie Mannix (Brolin) is a fixer whose job is to keep the stars' scandals out of the press during the shooting of a massive Roman movie. This proves particularly challenging »

The first trailer for Hail Caesar! has finally arrived, and it’s about time! Four-time Oscar-winning filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen (No Country for Old Men, True Grit, Fargo) write a story set during the latter years of Hollywood’s Golden Age. The latest film follows a single day in the life of a studio fixer (Josh Brolin) who “is presented with plenty of problems that he needs to fix” —and judging by the trailer, the film seems to have all of the Coens signature stylistic, and, comic touches — along with colorful visuals that harken back to old Hollywood. The film opens in North America next February, and also stars George Clooney, Alden Ehrenreich, Ralph Fiennes, Jonah Hill, Scarlett Johansson, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, and Channing Tatum. Watch the trailer below. Enjoy!

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).

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.

The film, based on Kevin Powers’ novel, was originally slated as a project for Benedict Cumberbatch (The Imitation Game), however it now seems that Huston is stepping into that particular role. Tye Sheridan (X-Men: Apocalypse) and Alden Ehrenreich (Blue Jasmine) are also aboard the film, which is being directed by Alexandre Moors (Blue Caprice).
The story follows “two young soldiers who become friends in boot camp and the elder (the 21-year-old Ehrenreich) promises to take care of his buddy (Sheridan), but it becomes increasingly difficult in wartime.” Huston plays Staff Sgt. Sterling while Aniston will play the younger boy’s mother.
Huston joins the film after his involvement in the remake of The Crow fell through due to co-producers Relativity Media going bankrupt earlier in the summer. »

His cold, steely biopic Blue Caprice might have not received the same fanfare as Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, but both were nonetheless stellar offerings at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival (here was my recap). A project that we could perhaps lump into the same category as Oren Moverman’s The Messenger was originally mounted at Cannes has changed its components of its line-up, Variety reports that The Yellow Birds now sees Alexandre Moors replace David Lowery in the director’s chair, while Jack Huston replaces Benedict Cumberbatch in the role of Sergeant Sterling in an Iraq war drama that includes Jennifer Aniston, Tye Sheridan and Alden Ehrenreich. Story Mining and Supply Co. CEO-president Jeffrey Sharp and Evan Hayes (The Circle) are producing along with Cinelou Films’ Courtney Solomon and Mark Canton (Cake).

According to a new report, Jack Huston (Boardwalk Empire) and Jennifer Aniston (Friends) have joined the cast of upcoming Iraq war drama, The Yellow Birds. Huston’s role was originally set to be taken by Benedict Cumberbatch, but the actor departed not too long ago, likely because his schedule is becoming increasingly busy and Doctor Strange is now on the horizon.
David Lowery (Ain’t Them Bodies Saints) was originally supposed to be directing this one from his own script, which revolves around two young soldiers – Tye Sheridan and Alden Ehrenreich – who are taken under the wing of an older sergeant, played by Huston, as they’re deployed to Iraq. Aniston is portraying the mother of Ehrenreich’s character. Now, however, Alexandre Moors (Blue Caprice) will take the helm.
Of course, the question here is do we really need another Iraq war drama? It seems like we’ve been flooded »

The project was first unveiled in May at the Cannes Film Festival. At that point, Cumberbatch, Tye Sheridan and Will Poulter were starring with David Lowery (“Ain’t Them Bodies Saints”) directing from his own script.
