If they’d stuck to the original plan, Inside Llewyn Davis would have already been and gone from cinemas, but it was pushed back to a Christmas US release in the hope of getting some awards recognition. Now we get a new taste of the Coen Brothers’ film with a new trailer.
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 will be out in US on December 20th, with a January 2014 opening set for the UK.
