Watch the First Trailer for Joel and Ethan Coen’s ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’

Whether you’re a fan of their movies or not, there’s no deny Joel and Ethan Coen have a unique style of filmmaking all their own . Like Tarantino, they draw on their vast wealth of influences to blend genres together and make films that are always fueled by eccentric, rich characters with a dry sense of humor and intelligence that’s often brutal but never emotionally vacant. Their films exist in a very specific world of their own making and with their latest effort, Inside the Mind of Llwelyn Davis, it appears people are already raving about the film, which looks to have a very similar aesthetic quality to Walter Salles’ recent On the Road.

Based on the memoir The Maymor of MacDougal Street by Dave Van Ronk, the film reunites Drive‘s Irene and Standard (Carey Mulligan and Oscar Isaac) as Llewyn and Jean to tell the story of the titular character, a song-songwriter making his way through the 1960s folk scene in New York City. Justin Timberlake, Adam Driver, John Goodman, and Garrett Hedlund join the cast in what seems to be a more intimate film for the brothers. Inside Llewyn Davis should see a preimere at Cannes this spring and will hopefully hit theaters sometime next year. And from this trailer, we’ll definitely be anticipating a speedy release date.
