Watch: First Trailer for Coen Brothers' Music Film 'Inside Llewyn Davis'
"Play me something from 'Inside Llewyn Davis'..." Out of nowhere comes the very first trailer for the newest Coen Brothers movie, a biopic about musician Llewyn Davis, played by Oscar Isaac. This is titled Inside Llewyn Davis and we've been following it for a while, because it's the Coen's follow-up to True Grit and as expected, it looks outstanding. Beyond being a great biopic, it looks like a solid period piece in New York City, and much more. Carey Mulligan, Adam Driver, Justin Timberlake, John Goodman, Garrett Hedlund also star, and this is supposedly coming out very soon (potentially February 8th). Take a look!

Big name musicians like Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan, and Jeff Buckley have performed the song previously, but the most important one is Dave Van Ronk, the character on which Llewyn Davis is based. If there was any doubt of Isaac's musical talents, this should erase them. It's a classic tune, and I can't wait to hear what other songs will make it on to the film's soundtrack, especially with all the talent taking on musician roles. For those just joining us, the film, partly based on Van Ronk's memoir The Mayor of MacDougal Street, chronicles the musicians's time as a larger-than-life presence in the 60's folk music scene in Greenwich Village, who is known for the famous folk-music haunts and mentoring musicians such as Bob Dylan. So?
