‘Hail Caesar!’ New Trailer Shows Downside of Hollywood’s Golden Age

The latest trailer for the Coen brothers’ comedy “Hail Caesar!” delves into a moment of utter futility in Hollywood’s Golden Age.

The clip shows Ralph Fiennes’ director character trying repeatedly to get the right line reading of “Would that it twere so simple” from an apparently inept actor, played by Alden Ehrenreich, who can’t suppress his southern twang.

Directed and written by Joel and Ethan Coen, the comedy also stars Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Tilda Swinton, Channing Tatum, Scarlett Johansson and Jonah Hill.

The film follows a day in the life of a studio fixer facing plenty of problems (including Clooney’s character’s kidnapping). The Coens are producing under their Mike Zoss banner along with Working Title Films, and Eric Fellner and Tim Bevan.

Universal opens “Hail Caesar!” on Feb. 5.
