Back in the Golden Age Of Hollywood, the Production Code literally meant that you weren’t allowed to mention homosexuality, but filmmakers still found ways to sneak things in. It appears the Coen Brothers are playing with that in their new movie, Hail, Ceasar!, at least if these new clips are anything to go by.
They feature Channing Tatum as movie star Burt Gurney, who’s filming a musical where he has to put up with the fact that at sea, there will be ‘No Dames’. The first clip allows Channing to show off his singing skills, while in the second we get to see that when there are No Dames around, the boys will certainly find things to occupy their time.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Four-time Oscar®-winning filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen (No Country for Old Men, True Grit, Fargo) write and direct Hail, Caesar!, an all-star comedy set during the latter years of Hollywood’s Golden Age. Starring Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, Channing Tatum, Scarlett Johansson, Jonah Hill and Frances McDormand, Hail, Caesar! follows a single day in the life of a studio fixer who is presented with plenty of problems to fix.’
The film will be in UK cinemas on March 4th. Take a look at the clips below.
