My most-anticipated film of 2016 is a little over a month away, and now Universal has released a new TV spot and the first poster for the Coen Brothers’ Hail, Caesar! Set during post-war Hollywood, the film stars Josh Brolin as a movie studio fixer who must hunt down his kidnapped star, played by George Clooney.
Judging by the TV spot along with the outstanding trailer, the film looks to be singularly Coen in its comedy and tone, and it also sports one of the best casts of 2016, which also includes Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, Channing Tatum, Scarlett Johansson, and Jonah Hill. Universal doesn’t need to release anything more to convince me to see this movie, but I’ll happily take anything that comes my way. The only downside to having the movie so early in the year is that it will probably set a very high bar.
Check out the new Hail, Caesar! poster and TV spot below. The film opens February 5th.
