Fans of the Coen Brothers will know that most of the pair's movies are laced with a decent amount of offbeat and even dark humour but it's not often that they produce full-on comedies.

2016's Hail Caesar! is one exception and features and all-star cast which includes George Clooney, Josh Brolin, Ralph Feinnes, Scarlett Johansson and Jonah Hill among numerous others.

The movie is intended as a spoof of 1950s Hollywood and drew critical acclaim upon its release with Richard Brody of The New Yorker calling it a "scintillating and uproarious comedy" while critic Richard Roeper said it was a "fun, charming and oft-hilarious take on Hollywood's Golden Age."

If you haven't managed to catch Hail Caesar!, RTÉ 2 will be screening it tonight from 9.30pm and you can get a taster of what's in store in the trailer below.
