Four-time Oscar-winning filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen (No Country for Old Men, True Grit, Fargo) write and direct Hail Caesar!, an all-star comedy set during the latter years of Hollywood’s Golden Age. Starring Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Alden Ehrenreich, Ralph Fiennes, Jonah Hill, Scarlett Johansson, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton and Channing Tatum, the movie Hail Caesar follows a single day in the life of a studio fixer who is presented with plenty of problems to fix.
The movie Hail Caesar is one of The Coen Bros’ worst performing movies at the box office – ever. While its cast includes George Clooney, Channing Tatum, Ralph Fiennes, Frances McDormand, Josh Brolin, Scarlett Johansson and Tilda Swinton and critics have called it a brilliant paean to Hollywood’s golden age, the picture bombed at the box office, with the lowest opening haul of any major release in the Oscar-winning duo’s career.
The Coen Brothers have either won or been nominated for Oscars for the movies Fargo, Bridge Of Spies, No Country For Old Men, Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?, A Serious Man and True Grit.
Expect no Oscar nominations in 2017 for Hail Caesar.
Both Joel Coen and brother Ethan Coen were born in the mid 1950s in Minneapolis.
Joel Coen has been married to Oscar winning actress Frances McDormand since 1984.
