Well, the trailer for “Hail, Caesar! is a blast

Here is the totally excellent trailer for “Hail, Ceasar!,” the newest from Ethan and Joel Coen due out sometime next year.

Josh Brolin is  Eddie Mannix, the no-nonsense studio production head trying to mount a prestige picture starring aging leading man Baird Whitlock (George Clooney, rocking his ’90s hair) who may or may not be able to lead these days.

When Whitlock is kidnapped by “the Future,” hi-jinks ensue with help from Scarlett Johansson, Jonah Hill, Tilda Swinton, Channing Tatum, and Frances McDormand.

In contrast to the still-amazing drama “Inside Llewyn Davis,” this looks to be the Coens in their “Hudsucker Proxy”/”Burn After Reading”/”Big Lebowski” mode. I have no problem with this whatsoever.
