CBS Films recently announced that the newest Coen Brothers film, Inside Llewyn Davis, would have a December 6 release date, right in the heart of awards season (after its debut at the Cannes Film Festival). This bodes well for those (including myself) who have the film in their Best Picture predictions, as well as the film’s overall Oscar chances (especially in the Original Screenplay field). The film – both written and directed by Joel and Ethan Coen – is set in 1960s Greenwich Village at the height of the folk music era that brought us great music from legends like Bob Dylan and Neil Young. The cast includes Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake, John Goodman, Garrett Hedlund, and F. Murray Abraham. Have a look at a few new images from the film after the jump. This is one I can’t be more excited about!
Lover of all things film and Oscar. Fantasy sports’ equivalent of George Steinbrenner. Your very own Han Solo, making friends all over the movie-loving galaxy in spite of himself. When he’s not ranking just about everything or dominating boardgames, Mark is breaking down the Oscar race 24/7 with Rain Man-like stats and knowledge. In his downtime, you can find him commiserating with other Northeast Ohio sports fans because a hero isn’t complete without a little heartbreak. If Game of Thrones, Lost, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, and Survivor are your style, then congratulations, you have something in common with this inglourious basterd.
