Get ready to watch Coen brothers new film Hail Caesare. No, not this year, but early next year around Superbowl 50 and the Oscar season. That is right, the film releases on Feb 5, 2016 . They just released the first trailer of Haile Caesare and that has already generated a lot of buzz for the filmmakers.
For about 10 years Joel and Ethan Coen wanted to make Hail Caesare, a picture about a Hollywood fixer. It was only in November 2014 the Coen brothers finally started filming their picture in Los Angeles.
The picture revolves around Eddie Mannix (Josh Brolin), a Hollywood fixer and the kidnapping of a a leading actor played by George Clooney. A handsome ransom needs to be paid before Clooney is released. Does the plot sounds a bit familiar and like one of their previous pictures? Maybe. The similarity probably ends right there. This comedy is set in Hollywood and takes you back to a whole different era of the film industry and its glamorous life style.
Hail Caesare stars Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Scarlett Johansson, Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swanson, Channing Tatum and Frances McDormand. Cinematography is by Roger Deakins. Music is by Carter Burwell. Joel and Ethan Coen wrote, directed and edited the film.
