Hail, Caesar! Trailer

"Who are We? The future." Universal has unveiled an outstanding first full-length trailer for the new Coen Brothers movie, written & directed by Joel & Ethan, hitting theaters early next February right in the thick of the awards season hoopla next year. Hail, Caesar! is an original comedy set in the 1950's following a Hollywood fixer trying to keep the stars' in line. George Clooney plays actor Baird Whitlock, along with Josh Brolin, Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, Channing Tatum, Scarlett Johansson, Frances McDormand and Jonah Hill. Helluva cast. This looks absolutely fabulous, way more wild and amusing than I was expecting for the Coens, but maybe I shouldn't be so surprised after all. I'm so there. Take a look.

Here's the first official trailer for the Coen Brothers' Hail, Caesar!, direct from Universal's YouTube:

Hail, Caesar! Poster

This new comedy from Joel & Ethan Coen is about a Hollywood fixer in the 1950s working to keep the studio's stars in line. Hail, Caesar! is both written and directed by iconic American filmmakers Joel Coen and Ethan Coen, of the films Inside Llewyn Davis, True Grit, A Serious Man, Burn After Reading, No Country for Old Men, O Brother Where Art Thou?, The Big Lebowski, Fargo, Barton Fink and Miller's Crossing. previously. "I wouldn't actually call it a 'musical comedy' — there are movies within the movie, and those movies might have comedic music, but the movie we’re making is actually not comical," composer Carter Burwell said earlier this year about the film. It has not premiered at any festivals yet. Universal will release the Coen Bros' Hail, Caesar! in limited theaters starting on February 5th, 2016 next year. You in?

    They should give an Oscar for that expression on Clooney's face in that very last shot... Hilariously brilliant :p

    I suddenly have an urge to watch Barton Fink.

    Looks like another fun movie about the making of movies, but I doubt this will rank among the best. Some of the actors feel out of place, mainly Scarlett Johansson and Jonah Hill, but Josh Brolin and George Clooney seem to be amazing in the film, so hopefully it's something incredible.
    • Terry Craig
      Only one that felt out of place was Channing Tatum for me. One of Johansson earliest roles was in the Coen's The Man Who Wasn't There, and Jonah Hill proved himself with Wolf of Wall Street imo. And if this movie is better than Burn After Reading, or is as fun as O Brother Where Art Thou, or comes anywhere near Hudsucker Proxy, who cares if it ranks among their best?
  • Michael: Yeppers. Jan: What did I tell you about "yeppers?" Michael: I don't... remember. Jan: I told you not to say it. Do you remember that? Michael: Yeesh... My post has nothing to do with the movie.
  • naundob
    Wait... no super heroes? I'm in.
    • SmarterThanThisIdiot
      pretentious and douchy? Yeah...sounds like you
  • Armitall
    Jonah Hill's scene was pretty funny, Clooney looks miscast tho. Looks great overall, can't wait to see it!
  • Michael Kingscott
    Yup, I'm in, even thought it's a Coen brothers "comedy"...
  • shane willett
    Looks great! Really, really great!
  • Jonathan
    I'm already in line for this and the next ten movies the Coens do.
  • tommyturner
    In. All in. But where the hell is John Goodman? Good to see Peter Jason still going strong. Great character actor.
  • tommyturner
    I've said this before, and I'll say it again: Tilda Swinton scares me.
