Star Wars: The Force Awakens (Official) and Hail Caesar Trailers
All I can say is, "Wow"! When it comes to the legendary Star Wars franchise that I hold in such high regard, in J.J. Abrams I trust. After an unfortunate trio of prequels tainted the late 1990s and early 2000s, visionary J.J. Abrams appears to have set the iconic franchise back on course. With the plot still extremely tight-lipped, all I can confirm is that Episode VII - The Force Awakens is set 30 years after the events of Return of the Jedi. The footage looks amazing and Christmas truly can't come fast enough, see for yourself below.
In February 2006, we get an unusual early-year treat from Joel & Ethan Coen. The prolific filmmaking siblings return with the comedy Hail, Caesar! starring George Clooney, Scarlett Johansson, Channing Tatum and Josh Brolin. The is set in 1950s Hollywood where a "fixer" is hired to handle a difficult situation after a film star is kidnapped and held for ransom during production of a huge blockbuster. The Coen brothers have a successful history of delivering on humor, so that makes Hail Caesar! something worth looking forward to this February.
