Clooney, Coen brothers hailed at Berlinale int’l film festival opening

BERLIN – They waited in the rain for hours to catch a glimpse of George Clooney, the star of Hail, Caesar!, the Coen brothers’ latest movie, which was the opening feature at the 66th Berlinale, the Berlin International Film Festival, last week.

Clooney fans called out to their idol as he walked inside the Grand Hyatt Hotel on Thursday to attend a press conference that was the official opening event of the festival. Clooney, the two directors and the film’s other stars – Channing Tatum, Josh Brolin, Tilda Swinton (whom moderator Anatol Weber called “the queen of the Berlinale”) and newcomer Alden Ehrenreich – were all at the event.

The famously reticent Coen brothers mumbled their way through the first few moments.
