We'll watch pretty much anything that the Coen Brothers put out at this point. Over the last few years they've established themselves as two of the most accomplished and daring directors working in Hollywood, and each new movie they pump out is unlike anything that they have done prior. And now the trailer for their latest film, Inside Llewyn Davis, has premiered, and while it's a bit on the quiet side, it still has that same Coen style.
The movie follows the life of Llewyn Davis, a folk singer-songwriter trying to make it in the NYC music scene during the ‘60s. He is played by Oscar Isaac, who channels a down-and-out vibe and mixes it with some dry humor and pathos in this footage. With some Bob Dylan playing throughout, this trailer sets up an unmistakable ambiance that fits right in with the time period and society that the Coens are re-creating.
With short glimpses of John Goodman and F. Murray Abraham in supporting roles, the trailer for Inside Llewyn Davis delivers the same black humor we've been conditioned to expect. We don't know much about the film so far, but we know enough about the talent involved to be excited about it.
There's no release date for the movie yet, but you can expect it in theaters at some point in 2013.
