Hail, Caesar! (2016)
Though it doesn’t quite reach the heights of some of the best movies we’ve seen from the Coen brothers, Hail, Caesar! is still among their most lovely in terms of visuals, set design, and period details. It’s also extremely funny and quotable to boot, as you’d expect from the veteran filmmaking brothers. In a cast that includes several notable A-listers, including Josh Brolin, Channing Tatum, Alden Ehrenreich, Frances McDormand, George Clooney, Tilda Swinton, and Ralph Fiennes, Scarlett Johansson might’ve easily gotten lost in the shuffle. Nevertheless, as DeeAnna Moran, who is molded in the vein of Esther Williams, Johannson continues to prove her knack for balancing comedy and drama, while also demonstrating that, in some ways, she is an old-fashioned A-list movie star who happened to find her fame in another era. Certainly, there’s no doubt that Johansson would always be a superstar.
