Hail, Caesar : would that it were so simple
I saw the trailer for the next Coen Brothers movie when I watched The Big Short.

It looks like a celebration of Hollywood's great celluloid movie ride.

The Coen Brothers seem to have packed it with well-known movie faces too, and there will no doubt be some twisted surprises.
Although the cinema trailer said 'Next Year', I suspect it really meant 2016.
