‘Hail, Caesar!’ Trailer Takes a Simple Approach

Travis Newton

The time has come again for a new Coen brothers movie, and the excitement is palpable here at Wikia. And that’s not just because we’re Coen fans — it’s because Hail, Caesar! is shaping up to be really, really funny. Check out the new trailer below!

I love that this trailer is structured around one long joke, keeping the focus on the oddball humor of the film. The Coens have always had a knack for casting, and the cast shown here would indicate that they’ve still got it.

Set during the latter years of Hollywood’s Golden Age, Hail, Caesar! follows a single day in the life of a studio fixer who is presented with plenty of problems to fix. Chief among them is the abduction of dimwitted movie star Baird Whitlock (George Clooney). Take a look at the poster below, and be sure to see this one in theaters starting February 5.
