The Coen Brothers’ latest gets a series of throwback posters and a behind the scenes featurette. Get hype.
For diehard fans of the Coen Brothers (*raises hand*), the duo’s upcoming ensemble piece is nothing short of our Force Awakens. Set near the end of Hollywood’s “Golden Age,” Hail, Caesar! follows Josh Brolin’s Eddie Mannix, a “fixer” attempting to solve the kidnapping of a prima donna star (played by George Clooney) from a major production, and also stars Jonah Hill, Scarlett Johansson, Channing Tatum, Tilda Swinton, and-STOP DRILLING, YOU’VE ALREADY STRUCK OIL!!
Suffice it to say, it would appear that the Coen’s have another masterpiece on their hands, to the point that anything they release ahead of the film’s premiere next Friday warrants a second glance. One such example: This great batch of throwback character posters. Another: A brief but glorious behind-the-scenes featurette.
So if you were somehow not already sold from the moment your ears heard the phrase “Coen brothers mystery comedy,” or the moment your eyes saw Channing Tatum completing an elaborate dance number in a sailor’s outfit, then maybe these promo materials will finally do the trick.
Hail, Caesar! hits theaters on February 5th.
