With a variety of acclaimed projects behind them such as Fargo (1996), The Big Lebowski (1998) and No Country for Old Men (2007), director siblings Joel and Ethan Coen are back with their starriest film to date as they reunite with several of their original actors in the upcoming Hail, Caesar!
The classic-era caper, which boasts a magnificent cast led by Hollywood superstar George Clooney (Syriana, Gravity) and Josh Brolin (No Country for Old Men, Guardians of the Galaxy), has premiered its official trailer online.
Set in the Golden age of Hollywood, the plot focuses on a single day at an old-school film studio in which renowned actor Baird Whitlock (Clooney) is abducted by kidnappers whilst shooting an upcoming Roman epic. It is left up to Hollywood fixer Eddie Mannix (Brolin) to try and prevent further scandals hitting the studio.
The rest of the starry ensemble includes Ralph Fiennes (Schindler’s List, Skyfall), Scarlett Johansson (Lost in Translation, The Avengers series), Frances McDormand (Fargo, Olive Kitteridge), Tilda Swinton (Michael Clayton, We Need to Talk About Kevin) and 21/22 Jump Street duo Jonah Hill (Superbad, The Wolf of Wall Street) and Channing Tatum (Magic Mike, Foxcatcher).
Hail, Caesar! will be released in cinemas on February 2016.
