While some expected it to show up at Venice or Toronto, we learned this week that CBS Films is heading straight from Cannes to New York Film Festival with the Coens‘ folk drama Inside Llewyn Davis, a fitting journey considering its Greenwich Village location. After three separate trailers, the distributor has now delivered yet another one. This new look highlights more of our down on his luck musician, Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac), including a great exchange with John Goodman‘s character.

One of our favorites from the Cannes Film Festival, we said this is “a delightful treat for fans of the folk music scene in its infancy while simultaneously being one of the funniest deadpan comedies in years.” Also featuring Marcus Mumford and Isaac’s version of Dink’s Song (aka Fare Thee Well), check it out below for the film also starring Justin Timberlake, Garrett Hedlund, Carey Mulligan, F. Murray Abraham and Adam Driver. If you missed it, also check out five things we learned about the film at Cannes.


INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS follows a week in the life of a young folk singer as he navigates the Greenwich Village folk scene of 1961. Guitar in tow, huddled against the unforgiving New York winter, he is struggling to make it as a musician against seemingly insurmountable obstacles—some of them of his own making.

Inside Llewyn Davis opens on December 6th.
