'Inside Llewyn Davis' Trailer: Inside the Coen Bros. Next FilmMike Sampson |
'Inside Llewyn Davis' is the next movie from the Coen Bros. and for that alone we're intrigued. But then you watch this - the first 'Inside Llewyn Davis' trailer - and we're excited for an entirely different set of reasons. Is this our first look at one of the 2014 Oscar frontrunners?
'Inside Llewyn Davis' stars Oscar Isaac as the titular character, a folk musician in the 1960s trying to make a career out of being a singer-songwriter. The film is loosely based on Dave Van Ronk's memoir "The Mayor of MacDougal Street."
Co-starring Justin Timberlake and Carey Mulligan, the film doesn't hit theaters until December but we've got our first look at the 'Inside Llewyn Davis' trailer today via a mysterious website, ildatthegaslight.com ("ild" short for 'Inside Llewyn Davis').
We like that the trailer focuses most on the title character (with "Farewell" by Bob Dylan playing in the background) and little on Timberlake, which would be an easy crutch for a film that doesn't have an easy sell to a wide audience. But if you love the Coen Bros. and love movies, you'll be excited for this without any hard sell. Just watch this 'Inside Llewyn Davis' trailer and make sure to remember it this December.
