The new film by the unique Coen Brothers, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, has its first trailer and it is most definitely the idiosyncratic and weirdly delightful trailer you would expect for a Coen Brothers anthology film.
Counting James Franco and Tim Blake Nelson among its cast for the six western tales it tells, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs will premiere in select theaters and on Netflix on November 16th.
The Coen Brothers’ love of movies – especially, in this case, movies of the fifties – has never been in greater display than in Hail, Caesar. As the film follows Capitol Films’ Head of Physical Production, Eddie Mannix, through twenty-fours of doing his job (he fixes problems that the studio’s actors create) we are taken through four very clever pastiches.
The problem with Hail, Caesar is that, if you’re not an avid fan of films from 65 years ago, you will probably miss out on over half the movie.
The Coen Brothers, new film, Hail, Caesar!, follows a Hollywood fixer on a day when he has a lot of stuff to fix – not the least of which is the kidnapping of the studio’s biggest star.
Universal Pictures takes us behind the scenes on a new video featuring comments from some of the film’s stars – Channing Tatum, Scarlett Johansson, Ralph Fiennes and Tilda Swinton. Check it out after the jump.
