Hail, Caesar!

UK Release Date: 4th March 2016

A Hollywood fixer in the 1950s works to keep the studio's stars in line (

Directors: Ethan Coen, Joel Coen (No Country for Old Men, True Grit, Inside Llewyn Davis)

Starring: Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Alden Ehrenreich, Raplh Fiennes, Jonah Hill, Scarlet Johansson, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, Channing Tatum

The weird and hugely wonderful Coen Brothers strike again with a movie that's as odd as it is dry. The movie focuses around film studio 'fixer' Eddie Mannix (Josh Brolin). Any complication the studio has, he will suppress. Many burdens need tackling on this particular day; a star on their latest blockbuster goes, twin reporters working for different papers harass him, an insufferable actor who lacks talent, and an actress lacking romance. Brolin crosses the tees and dots the eyes, linking all the other film's participants into one erratic comedy. The dialogue flourishes, the farce entertains and the production's a blast to the past, with a few hidden easter eggs to boot.
