The first trailer for acclaimed directors Ethan and Joel Coen’s intriguing drama Inside Llewyn Davis has finally found its way online.
The clip embedded below is far more atmospheric than it is informative. Although the story is a bit vague, the film seems to follow the adventures of an aspiring folk musician looking to make a name for himself in Greenwich Village during the 60s. Sucker Punch co-star Oscar Isaac will tackle the role of Llewyn Davis.
In addition to Isaac, the latest offering from the Coen brothers stars Carey Mulligan, John Goodman, Adam Driver, Garrett Hedlund, and Justin Timberlake. Frequent Jean-Pierre Jeunet collaborator Bruno Delbonnel handled cinematography duties on the film, which is evident even in the trailer.
Although little is known about the actual plot, the story is said to be loosely based on folk singer Dave Van Ronk’s memoir The Mayor of MacDougal Street. Van Ronk, Bob Dylan, and Joan Baez were among the many acclaimed musicians who emerged from the Greenwich Village scene.
According to Rope of Silicon, Inside Llewyn Davis hasn’t inked a distribution deal in the United States just yet. As such, the film is currently without a release date. Given the talent involved, it’s only a matter of time before someone snatches this thing up.
However, industry insiders living on the West Coast will have an opportunity to watch the film on the Sony Lot in the next few days. Indiewire reports that the flick is slated to screen for one night only on February 9.
The trailer for the latest film by Joel and Ethan Coen has been embedded below. Keep in mind the clip does contain inappropriate dialogue and crude language that may not be very safe for work.
