The good news is, there’s a new Coen Brothers movie coming. The bad news is, you’ll have to wait over a year to see it. Hail, Caesar! is from writing/directing/producing siblings Joel and Ethan Coen, which automatically puts it atop whatever must-watch list you have going. The film is a comedy, and the third entry in the directors’ loose George Clooney-starring “idiot trilogy” which began with O, Brother Where Art Thou? and continued with Intolerable Cruelty.
The cast of Hail, Caesar! includes Clooney, and Josh Brolin, Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, Channing Tatum, Scarlett Johansson and Jonah Hill. We’ve got more info, including the first official synopsis, below. Read More »

In 1978, the Star Wars Holiday Special aired on CBS. It quickly became one of the most infamously horrible pieces of Star Wars history. (Until the prequels, that is, hey yo!) Aside from a cartoon that introduced us to Boba Fett, the television special was notoriously bad, showing us Life Day on the Wookiee home world of Kashyyyk where Bea Arthur sings musical numbers. Anyway, moving on…

Now there’s a small Robopocalypse status update from Wilson. Read More »
