A new red trailer for the Coen Brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis has debuted, which certainly shows off the directors’ flair, even if it is something a little different than most people expect from them (although if you look at their filmography, they are more eclectic than most give them credit for).
Oscar Isaac stars as the title character, a folk singer making his way through the Greenwich Village music scene in the 1960s. The movie is loosely based on the life of folk singer Dave Van Ronk. Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake, Gerrett Hedlund, and John Goodman also star.
It certainly looks stylish, with plenty of the Coens’ trademark sharp dialogue, although it’s definitely one of their more idiosyncratic efforts. The film debuted at Cannes and will get an Oscar-bait end of year cinema release in the US, with a January 2014 opening set for the UK.
