The latest trailer for The Coen Brothers’ Hollywood throwback comedy Hail, Caesar! is pretty much just Ralph Feinnes being hysterical. Fiennes is director Laurence Lorenz, and he is torturing his hayseed leading man, played by Alden Ehrenreich, trying to get just a… simple… phrase right.
Here is the trailer:
Here is a synopsis on the film:
Four-time Oscar®-winning filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen (No Country for Old Men, True Grit, Fargo) write and direct Hail, Caesar!, an all-star comedy set during the latter years of Hollywood’s Golden Age. Starring Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Alden Ehrenreich, Ralph Fiennes, Jonah Hill, Scarlett Johansson, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton and Channing Tatum, Hail, Caesar! follows a single day in the life of a studio fixer who is presented with plenty of problems to fix.
The comedy is produced by the Coen brothers under their Mike Zoss Productions banner alongside Working Title Films’ Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner.
I’m a sucker for old Hollywood comedies and dramas, and with The Coen Brothers behind the camera, I couldn’t be more sold. Hail, Caesar! hits theaters February 5.
