Inside Llewyn Davis
"Inside Llewyn Davis" doesn't have official U.S. distribution or a 2013 release date just yet, but it's already one of the most anticipated films of the year. Now you can see why.
Directed by Joel and Ethan Coen, "Inside Llewyn Davis" focuses on the fictional 1960s folk singer of the title (played by Oscar Isaac), a ne'er-do-well looking to get his big break. (Initial reports had the film based on the life of Dave Van Ronk, but that doesn't appear to be the case.) Isaac, best known for his brief role in "Drive," is the star of this show, but it's the supporting cast that should also have Coen brothers fans excited: Carey Mulligan -- wearing a mousy brown wig and spouting off incredible one-liners -- co-stars as Davis' ex; Justin Timberlake is her husband; and John Goodman, F. Murray Abraham, Adam Driver and Garrett Hedlund appear as well. (Early Oscar prediction: Expect Goodman to get serious consideration in the Best Supporting Actor category, just judging from this trailer.)
As Thompson on Hollywood reports, the trailer was sent out to media members along with an invite to watch "Inside Llewyn Davis" on the Sony lot. Scott Rudin is a producer of "Inside Llewyn Davis," but the film has not yet found a domestic distributer. Judging by the trailer, it shouldn't take too long.
