Joel and Ethan Coen’s Hail, Caesar! is not (not-so-surprisingly) a historical biopic, but in fact a send-up of the Golden Age of moviemaking.
The story follows a Hollywood fixer, portrayed by Josh Brolin, who helps a major studio keep its stars out of the tabloids. His role is based on real-life MGM executive Eddie Mannix, reports Collider.com.
Brolin is joined by a number of familiar faces, with some appearing in the below trailer, including Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, George Clooney, Scarlett Johansson, Channing Tatum, Dolph Lundgren, Jonah Hill, Christopher Lambert and Frances McDormand.
Here’s a look at Fiennes as Laurence Lorenz helping a young actor (Alden Ehrenreich) work out his lines:
There is a lot of colorful, glammed-up action in the trailer, but we’d like to point out that the film covers the span of just one day.
That’s a lot of fixing.
Hail, Caesar! hits U.S. theaters on February 5.
