Eddie Mannix is a Hollywood “fixer” helping the production of the upcoming film entitled Hail Caesar starring Baird Whitlock. When Whitlock is kidnapped by a group named “The Future,” Mannix is the one in charge of collecting 100,000 dollars and rescuing him.
George Clooney, Scarlett Johansson, Josh Brolin, Frances McDormand, Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, Dolph Lundgren and Christopher Lambert star in this crazy comedy from writers and directors Ethan Coen and Joel Coen. With or without the amazing cast, Hail, Caesar! absolutely looks like a very entertaining flick. And yes, it does also look like a Coen brothers film, but more often than not that has proved to be a good thing. Even at their worst the duo delivered at the very least average movies. So basically Hail, Caesar! is something I’ll keep my eyes on, maybe so should you.
Hail, Caesar! opens February 5th 2016 in the US. Not gonna lie, considering most of their stuff opens very late in the year for awards consideration, that date seem sort of strange for a Coens film. Hopefully it doesn’t mean what I’m inclined to think it could mean.
