Movie Review: The Coen Brothers’ Hail, Caesar!

Hail, Caesar George Clooney

Hail, Caesar!
Directors: Joel and Ethan Coen
Writers: Joel and Ethan Coen
Cast: Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Alden Ehrenreich, Ralph Fiennes, Jonah Hill, Scarlett Johansson, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, and Channing Tatum
Release Date: February 5, 2016

The Coen Brothers films are the reason why we go to the movies. And as such we are given an experience unlike any other. From the drama of a struggling musician in Inside Llewyn Davis to the issues of morality in No Country For Old Men to the dark comedy of Fargo, the Coens prove time and again that they are clearly ahead of the curve and are just the smartest men in the room.

Their latest project, Hail, Caesar! is like a love letter to the Golden Age of Hollywood. Which is great, if it actually took the time to be something other than just a love letter to the Golden Age of Hollywood. While the film touts an incredible all-star cast playing roles of all sizes, it is probably too smart for its own good.

Josh Brolin and George Clooney in Hail, Caesar!

The Coen Brothers‘ long-gestating Hail, Caesar! is finally arriving into theaters this Friday. The film explores old Hollywood, an age where fixers are hired by major studios to keep actors out of trouble or clean up the trouble by handling the press. Eddie Mannix (Josh Brolin), a fixer for Capitol Studios, not only has to deal with impending scandals, but also has to find out where a kidnapped Baird Whitlock (George Clooney) is being held by a mysterious group called The Future.

We were recently invited to sit down at the film’s press conference where Brolin, Clooney, Alden Ehrenreich, Channing Tatum, and Jonah Hill were on hand to talk about the film’s comedy, not improving a perfect Coen Brothers’ script, not making any suggestions to Roger Deakins, and more.

George Clooney In Talks To Direct Coen Brothers’ ‘Suburbicon’

Hail Caesar George Clooney

George Clooney and The Coen Brothers have a very healthy working relationship. Together, they have worked on four films: O Brother Where Art Thou, Intolerable Cruelty, Burn After Reading, and come next year, Hail, Caesar! But of all those films, Clooney has only starred in them, not directed. So the Coen Brothers’ next project might be that paradigm shift in their working relationship.

There is a new report coming out that says Clooney is in talks to direct Suburbicon from the Coen Brothers, a project that has been gestating for over a decade. More on the story below.

Fargo Season 2 header

Season 2 of Fargo will take an interesting turn. Instead of moving forward, the series will turn back time and be set in a post-Vietnam War era. Lou Solverson, who was played by Keith Carradine in season 1, will be played by Patrick Wilson in season 2. Having just returned from Vietnam, Solverson has been assigned to investigate a crime between a small-town gang and a major Mob syndicate.

As you can see in the trailer below, it looks like season 2 will be just as dark and twisted as season 1. Not to mention just as funny.

The Big Lebowski

Every year since 1989 the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry has selected twenty-five short films and full-length features to be recognized, in the words of the librarian of Congress James H. Billington, as “cultural, historical, or aesthetic cinematic treasures.” From Citizen Kane and Star Wars to Woodstock and This is Spinal Tap, each year’s list contains some of the most beloved and significant films ever made, and now the Dude and Ferris Bueller get to join their ranks.

Joel and Ethan Coen’s 1998 comic thriller The Big Lebowski, which has become a certified cult classic in the sixteen years since its theatrical, Steven Spielberg’s Oscar-winning World War II drama Saving Private Ryan, and John Hughes’ endlessly quotable high school comedy Ferris Bueller’s Day Off are among this year’s additions to the National Film Registry, bringing the total amount of films in the Registry to 650.

The Coen Brothers

There is nothing more exciting than a Coen Brothers‘ film. It has only been a year since their critically acclaimed hit Inside Llewyn Davis opened in theaters, but the siblings are at it again with Hail, Caesar!

Now Universal Pictures has released the official synopsis for Hail, Caesar!, as well as announced the release date for the 2016 film. Yes, we will have to wait another year and a few months before we get to see a Coen Brothers’ film, which has a stellar cast. Hit the jump for the full cast and synopsis.

Scarlett Johansson Header Image

The Coen Brothers‘ films have always had a strong cast, but none as eclectic and powerful as Hail Caesar! The film already has cast a few Coen Brothers film alum members like George Clooney, Tilda Swinton, and Josh Brolin. The three will be joined by Channing Tatum and Ralph Fiennes. Now the film about Hollywood in the ’50s will be adding Scarlett Johansson and Jonah Hill.

This will be a reunion of sorts for Johansson who has worked with the Coen Brothers once before in The Man Who Wasn’t There; as well as for Hill, who will reunite with 21 Jump Street co-star Tatum for a fourth time. Hit the jump to see what they will play.
