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

Starring George Clooney, Jonah Hill, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, Josh Brolin, Ralph Fiennes, Scarlett Johansen and Channing Tatum, the film will include a sendup of the same sorts of classic Hollywood musicals parodied in Dames at Sea.

Tatum, star of the film "Magic Mike," plays a tap-dancing sailor. Here is a clip of him singing a number strangely reminiscent of "There Is Nothing Like a Dame" from South Pacific:

The film is written, directed and produced by the Coen brothers.

The plot involves a mysterious group calling itself The Future, which kidnaps the star (Clooney) of a big Golden Age Hollywood historical epic in mid-production, potentially costing the studio a fortune.

Here is the first trailer from "Hail, Caesar!":
