The Coen Brother’s latest film “Hail, Caesar!” follows 1950’s studio fixer Eddie Mannix (Josh Brolin) as he contends with a host of challenges, including a studio star (George Clooney) being kidnapped by disgruntled Communist screenwriters, a synchronized swimming actress’ (Scarlett Johansson) unplanned pregnancy, and a young Western film star (Alden Ehrenreich) struggling in a new period drama. The film also stars Ralph Fiennes (“The Grand Budapest Hotel”), Jonah Hill (“Superbad”), Tilda Swinton (“Only Lovers Left Alive”), Frances McDormand (“Fargo”), Channing Tatum (“The Hateful Eight”), and more. Watch an exclusive behind-the-scenes featurette clip above, featuring Fiennes and Swinton talking about the 1950’s Hollywood period accuracy and the wonderful costumes.
