The Coen Brothers' 'Hail, Caesar!' Sets Early 2016 Release Date, Official Synopsis Revealed

The stigma of a movie being released in the first few months of the year seems to be fading. Steven Soderbergh‘s “Side Effects” hit in February 2013, Wes Anderson‘s “Grand Budapest Hotel” arrived this past March, and Michael Mann‘s “Blackhat” is coming next January. And now, a pair of auteurs are also looking at a winter release.

Universal has set the Coen Brothers‘ “Hail, Caesar!” with a February 5, 2016 release. The starry comedy now has an official synopsis too. Check out all the details in the press release below.

The comedy is produced by the Coen brothers under their Mike Zoss Productions banner, with Working Title Films and Eric Fellner and Tim Bevan.
