Hail, Caesar! (2015)
Monday 2nd May 2016
When the world's biggest movie star suddenly goes missing, it's up to a studio fixer to rescue him in Hail, Caesar!, a star-studded comedy featuring George Clooney, Channing Tatum, Scarlett Johansson, Jonah Hill, Josh Brolin, Tilda Swinton, Ralph Fiennes, Alden Ehrenreich, and Frances McDormand set in Hollywood's Golden Age.
Coming to digital download on (b)27th June 2016, and Blu-ray and DVD on 11th July 2016, Hail, Caesar! is the ingenious creation of four-time Oscar®-winning filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen (No Country for Old Men, Fargo). The comic whodunit pulls back the curtain to reveal the backstage humour and drama of the movie industry, and includes exclusive bonus features that take viewers behind the scenes of the film's most inventive escapades.
Hail, Caesar! follows a single day in the life of Eddie Mannix (Josh Brolin), head of production and all-around problem solver for Hollywood studio Capitol Pictures. When Baird Whitlock (George Clooney), the world's biggest star, is kidnapped in the middle of production on the studio's latest swords-and-sandals epic, Eddie will have to recover his leading man while simultaneously appeasing cowboy star Hobie Doyle (Alden Ehrenreich), disgruntled director Laurence Laurentz (Ralph Fiennes), swimming sensation DeeAnna Moran (Scarlett Johansson) and song-and-dance superstar Burt Gurney (Channing Tatum), all while horse-trading information to keep his talents' names out of the gossip columns written by a pair of rival siblings, Thora and Thessaly Thacker (Tilda Swinton).
George Clooney (Gravity) Channing Tatum (Magic Mike, 21 Jump Street) Scarlett Johansson (Lucy), Jonah Hill (The Wolf of Wall Street), Josh Brolin (No Country for Old Men), Tilda Swinton (Michael Clayton), Ralph Fiennes (The Grand Budapest Hotel), Alden Ehrenreich (Blue Jasmine) and Frances McDormand (Fargo) star in the Coen Brothers' comedy that has been called "a comedic tour de force".
