Joel and Ethan Coen, creators of the idiosyncratic cult hits "The Big Lebowski" and "Fargo," are sending up Hollywood itself in their latest film with music, "Hail, Caesar!," opening Feb. 5.

Starring George Clooney, Jonah Hill, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, Josh Brolin, Ralph Fiennes, Scarlett Johansen and Channing Tatum, the film includes a sendup of classic Hollywood musicals.
