First Trailer for The Coen Brothers’ ‘Hail, Caesar!’ has Arrived

Coen Brothers Musical Farce

The first trailer for Hail, Caesar!, Joel and Ethan Coen’s star-studded new kind of musical farce, has arrived online.

The brothers’ latest focuses on the Old Hollywood and is one of our most-anticipated films of 2016. Looks fun to watch. The characters seems loosely based on real-life movie stars from the Golden Age, but with wild exagerrations.

The all-star cast includes Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Channing Tatum, Tilda Swinton, Ralph Fiennes, Jonah Hill, Frances McDormand, Christopher Lambert and Scarlett Johansson. Great cast for this one.

Hail, Caesar! is out in theaters on February 5, 2016. Watch the trailer after the jump.

Glad to see they got Roger Deakins to shoot on film again. Could fit in the same universe as Barton Fink. Jamie N Commons‘ Rumble and Sway fits the teaser quite well, no complaints.

Hail, Caesar! stars Josh Brolin as a Golden Age Hollywood “fixer,” a studio employee tasked with keeping stars’ public profiles clean and free of scandal. But he’s got his work cut out for him when the leading man on a big gladiator epic (frequent Coen collaborator George Clooney) gets kidnapped by a mysterious syndicate known only as “The Future”. The madcap scramble to get him back in time to complete the film drags Brolin through a Tinseltown wonderland where Scarlett Johansson leaps into a pool while dressed as a mermaid (swoon) and Channing Tatum completes his transformation into the latter-day Gene Kelly (via Nerdist).
