‘Hail, Caesar!’ Clips Show Off Channing Tatum’s Singing Sailor and Scarlett Johansson’s Sassy Starlet
January is a pretty dead month for new releases, but February has a few exciting prospects, chief among them Joel and Ethan Coen’s Hail, Caesar! The filmmaking duo are back with their first film since Inside Llewyn Davis, and while it also boasts a musical element, these new clips prove that the Coens’ latest is more comedy than drama.
In the first clip above, Channing Tatum’s Gene Kelly-esque character performs a sailor-flavored musical number and shows off his wonderful singing skills, though the scene stops short of delivering some of his better-known dance moves. And in the clip below, Scarlett Johansson’s brassy Hollywood starlet gets exasperated with Josh Brolin’s character as he annoyingly insists that she find a new husband.
Brolin stars in Hail, Caesar! as studio fixer Eddie Mannix, who makes a living by keeping his celeb clients and their personal lives out of the tabloids. When a famous actor is kidnapped by a mysterious group known as The Future, it’s up to Mannix to rescue the leading man.
