The new Coen Brothers film, Hail Caesar will open the Berlin Film Festival on February 11, 2016. Hail Caesar! Taking place during the latter days of Hollywood’s Golden Age, the film follows a day in the life of a studio fixer who is presented with plenty of problems to fix. The film stars George Clooney, Josh Brolin, Ralph Fiennes, Jonah Hill, Scarlett Johansson, Tilda Swinton and Channing Tatum.
This isn’t the first time the Coen Brothers have opened the Berlinale Film Festival, The Big Lebowski was presented there in 1998 and True Grit opened the festival in 2011.
“It’s wonderful that Joel and Ethan Coen are once again opening the Berlinale. Their humour, unique characters and fantastic narrative skill are guaranteed to thrill the audience. Hail, Caesar! is the perfect start for the 2016 Berlinale,” says Festival Director Dieter Kosslick.
