Hail Caesar UK Premiere on Feb 17

Coens’ Hail, Caesar! to receive UK premiere at festival.

Glasgow Film Festival has announced it will open with the UK premiere of the Coen Brothers’ Hail, Caesar! on Feb 17 and close with the UK premiere of Charlie Kaufman’s Anomalisa on Feb 28.

Set during the golden age of Hollywood, Hail, Caesar! stars George Clooney, Scarlett Johansson and Tilda Swinton and will screen in Glasgow less than a week after its world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival on Feb 11.

The film is released by Universal Pictures worldwide and will open in UK cinemas on March 4.

Anomalisa, a stop-motion animation co-directed by Kaufman and Duke Johnson, won the Grand Special Jury Prize at Venice 2015 and was later acquired by Paramount in a deal thought to be worth $5m.

Distributed by Curzon, Anomalisa opens in UK cinemas on March 11.

The full festival programme will be announced on Jan 20.

Festival co-director Allison Gardner said: “We like to open the festival with something special to build audience excitement for the fortnight of films to come, and Hail, Caesar! is as big and beautiful a film as you can get.

“We are absolutely delighted to be screening the Coens’ wonderful, all-star salute to Old Hollywood, and especially privileged to be hosting the film’s UK premiere.”

Festival co-director Allan Hunter added: “Charlie Kaufman has a rare ability to blow your mind and warm your heart at the same time. Anomalisa is a one of kind experience that finds incredible depths of human emotion in the plight of its stop-motion animated characters.

“I am so thrilled that we will be closing with the UK premiere of one of the year’s most unforgettable films.”
Impressive! First opening film of Berlin Film Festival and then this! George is coming to Scotland!

So George will be very busy in February...

Nicky, are you going to the Berlinale? I tried to arrange it after I'd read about Sevens' impressions in Shanghai but can't organize it (a lot to do at work, my husband will be at a conference the whole week, and I've got nobody to look after the kids...)

At least it means that we'll get lots of interviews and photos which isn't bad at all...

Just leave them at home - I'm sure they'll figure things out soon enough . . . !

Katie,
if I would live somewhere near Berlin and it would just be about a few hours I wouldn't mind. But for me it would mean an overnight stay, two days off from home and work, and all that during the week when they need to go to school. And that's just a bit too much for them to handle...
