'Hail, Caesar!' Trailer: The Coen Brothers Take on 1950s Hollywood

George Clooney and Josh Brolin star in the latest flick from 'The Big Lebowski' helmers.

The Coen Brothers latest film, Hail, Caesar!, is a meta comedy about Hollywood, starring everyone in Hollywood.

Hail, Caesar! follows the story of studio head Eddie Mannix (played by a fedora-wearing Josh Brolin) whose A-list actor Baird Whitlock (played by A-list actor George Clooney) has been kidnapped during the production of their latest prestige picture, aptly titled "Hail, Caesar!"

The trailer also sees Tilda Swinton as a gossip columnist, Ralph Fiennes as an auteur director, Frances McDormand as a frazzled film editor and Jonah Hill as an equally frazzled accountant. It also has a tap-dancing Channing Tatum in a sailor suit and Scarlett Johansson in a mermaid costume. 

The comedy is the Coens' follow-up to their more serious semi-biographical film Inside Llewyn Davis.

Hail, Caesar! is due out Feb. 5, 2016.
