Trailer Time: Inside Llewyn Davis

The trailer for the new Coen Brother's movie has surfaced and it's embedded below for all your watching pleasure.

It's been three years since we've had a Coen brother movie (I'm counting from True Grit rather than Gambit) and expectations are pretty high for this drama about a song writer who navigates his life through the 1960's folk scene. Gathering from the what the trailer shows us, I don't think we will be disappointed.

The acting looks top notch, with Ms Mulligan seemingly taking on a pretty bitchy and unlikable character, and it's nice to see Oscar Isaac in a leading role. In terms of Coen regulars, the only face present appears to be Mr Goodman which again suggests we may be in for a rather different film than what we are normally used to seeing. My only one disappointment is that this appears to be a full on drama, without any room for dark/light comedy that the brothers are famous for.

The release date for the US is 8th February but it doesn't appear to be hitting European shores until the end of the year. I'm guessing they may be having a limited run before releasing it again at the end of the year in time for the Oscar season.
