Watch: Impressive Trailer For The Coen Brothers' 'Inside Llewyn Davis,' Film Has First Screening In February

Put everything on hold: the first trailer for the Coen Brothers‘ hugely anticipated “Inside Llewyn Davis” has wormed its way online, and it’s pretty damn great. So let’s jump right in…

Perhaps the biggest thing to note here is how both visually and tonally, this is unlike anything the directorial siblings have done in their career, for the most part. Almost looking like a faded photograph, the camerawork by Bruno Delbonnel (“Across The Universe,” “Harry Potter & The Half-Blood Prince“) is pretty remarkable, really lending an authentic, lived-in vibe to the Greenwich Village scene of the ’60s that the Coens are trying to evoke (regular cinematographer Roger Deakins was unavailable as he was shooting “Skyfall“). But standing out tall are the performances.

Loosely based on the life of Dave van Ronk, an influential folk musician who inspired people like Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott and Joni Mitchell, Oscar Isaac really steps it up as a man seemingly trying to find a place in the world for himself and his talent. But it’s truly Carey Mulligan who surprises — we’ve simply never seen her in this kind of part, and she is almost reminiscent of a younger Frances McDormand in her delivery and presence. And she perfectly handles the Coens’ always great dialogue.

And while we patiently await a release date, it looks Sony is starting the party early with a screening on their lot next month. Watch below. By the way, in case you’re wondering, the Dylan song within the trailer is “Farewell,” released on the The Bootleg Series, Vol 9: The Witmark Demos: 1962-1964. A somewhat similar version titled, “Restless Farewell, was released on his third album, The Times They Are a-Changin’. [Thompson On Hollywood]

Time for Oscar Isaac to blow up. Underrated doesn't begin.

Justin Timberlake is in this movie?? It looks great indeed, Carey Mulligan is a really good actress and Oscar Isaac is very underated… the whole cast actually appears to be good. Looking foward to it.

Wow! Carey Mulligan looks great and nice to see a very different part for her. And I am overjoyed to see F. Murray Abraham

The very existence of Garrett Hedlund (sitting in the car) reminds me on the road, which I didn't like very much.

DHE

Huh… He sounds like Ryan Gosling
