On 11 February 2016, HAIL, CAESAR! by Academy Award winning director duo Joel and Ethan Coen will open the 66th Berlin International Film Festival.

HAIL, CAESAR
HAIL, CAESAR !

 HAIL, CAESAR! takes place during the latter years of Hollywood's Golden Age, during the studio system's heyday, and features an all-star cast including Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Alden Ehrenreich, Ralph Fiennes, Jonah Hill, Scarlett Johansson, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton and Channing Tatum. The comedy follows a single day in the life of a studio fixer who is presented with plenty of problems to fix.
 
The renowned directors Joel and Ethan Coen have been a prominent fixture in international cinema for more than 30 years. After their sensational debut BLOOD SIMPLE (1984), the Coen Brothers have enjoyed international successes with audiences and critics alike for films such as FARGO (1996, Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay), NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN (2007, three Academy Awards in the categories Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Film and Best Director), BURN AFTER READING (2008), A SERIOUS MAN (2009) and INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS (2013).

In 1998, the Coen Brothers presented their brilliant comedy THE BIG LEBOWSKI in the Berlinale Competition programme, and their dramatic western TRUE GRIT opened the 61st Berlin International Film 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.
 
HAIL, CAESAR! is produced by Joel and Ethan Coen, and Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner, through Mike Zoss Productions and Working Title Films.
 
The film is released by Universal Pictures worldwide and will open in German cinemas on February 18, 2016.
