If you aren’t familiar with the work of Joel and Ethan Coen, they you should quickly do so. The minds behind Fargo, The Big Lebowski, O Brother, Where Art Thou?, No Country for Old Men, True Grit (2010), Inside Llewyn Davis and many more, it’s pretty easy to see why they are so highly regarded in the film world. Bridge of Spies, which is written by the Coen’s and directed by Steven Spielberg, is hitting screens next week, but that’s not the film that’s just got me pumped.
Written and directed by the Coen Brothers, Universal has just released the debut trailer for Hail, Caesar! and damn it’s just f**king fantastic. The film follows a single day in the life of a studio fixer (Josh Brolin) who is presented with plenty of problems to fix. And just going by this trailer, it looks like a perfect culmination of everything the Coen’s are just so damn good at; one of a kind style, colorful visuals and great comedic moments, all things that play very well into that old school Hollywood setting. This film hasn’t really been on my radar just because I had yet to see anything on it, but now that I have, my excitement is through the roof right now. February can’t get here any faster.
Take a look at the first trailer below, as well as a handful of images:
