Hail Caesar! Coen Bros. Trailer

Yup, I’d say this looks like a Coen Bros. film.

Universal Pictures released the first trailer to the upcoming Coen Bros. film Hail Caesar! today, and boy does it look like a Coen Bros. movie.  I don’t mean that as a negative in the slightest, they’ve cultivated a certain signature aesthetic and atmosphere and this film seems to be utterly soaked in itthat’s a good thing.  Following two mostly serious but very solid films -True Grit and Inside Llewyn Davis- it’s nice to see the Coen’s back to embracing the romping, lighthearted lunacy, of prior films: O Brother Where Art Thou?, The Big Lebowski, Raising Arizona and The Ladykillers (yes, even The Ladykillers).

The film hits theaters on Feb. 5th.
