Hail, Caesar! SuperTicket The Movie

Hail, Caesar! SuperTicket


In 1950s Hollywood, Eddie Mannix is Capital Pictures' head of physical production and, most importantly, the studio fixer. His job is to maintain the clean reputation of the company and its stars, keeping them free from controversy. Mannix is advised that studio star Baird Whitlock has disappeared after not showning up for work on the current production of "Hail Caesar, a Tale of Christ's Life." He initially believes Whitlock has been drinking, but receives a call from a group of communists who claim to have kidnapped him and want a ransom. As Mannix gathers the cash, he simultaneously deals with an unhappy director who is working on another project, while innocent young starlet DeeAnna Moran is pregnant and unmarried. Mannix must handle all of this while keeping the gossip columnists off the scent. When Mannix is approached by an aviation company with an offer of a less-hectic, and rather lucrative, job, he must ultimately determine his true skills and passions.

Hail, Caesar!

Eddie Mannix's job as a studio fixer begins before dawn. Each film on the studio's slate comes complete with its own headache, and Mannix is tasked with finding a solution to every one of them. Over the course of 24 hours, he must procure sign-off from religious leaders on a Biblical epic, deal with a director unhappy with the casting of cowboy star Hobie Doyle in his sophisticated drama, find a way for swimming sensation DeeAnna Moran to avoid scandal and figure out why song-and-dance superstar Burt Gurney has been acting so strangely. Now, Mannix has been confronted with the crisis of his career: one of the studio's biggest moneymakers, Baird Whitlock, has been kidnapped, and a mysterious group called "The Future" has claimed responsibility. Mannix must keep the problems under wraps, all the while horse-trading information to keep his actors' names out of the gossip columns. For this fixer, it's all in a day's work.
