The latest trailer for Joel and Ethan Coen‘s new film Inside Llewyn Davis may not offer too much new footage, but it does point out that 2013 is one of the great years of cinema — or at least has the potential to be.
This weekend really kicks things into gear with Wong Kar-Wai‘s The Grandmaster, Destin Cretton‘s Short Term 12, Edgar Wright‘s The World’s End, and You’re Next. Next week Brian De Palma’s Passion hits the big screen, and for the rest of the year we get new films by the Coens, Spike Jonze, Martin Scorsese, Ridley Scott, Alfonso Cuaron, Paul Greengrass, Spike Lee, Peter Jackson (one can hope), George Clooney, David O. Russell, Adam McKay, and Jason Reitman. On top of some already great films by Park Chan-wook , Richard Linklater, Noah Baumbach, Terrence Malick, Shane Black and more. Like we said, a pretty good year. Here’s that trailer:
There’s some new dialogue in the mix here, mostly from Coen Stalwart John Goodman, but it mostly shows things from the previous trailer, that Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac) has a cat, a complicated relationship with women (mostly Carey Mulligan), and that he may not be the most successful folk artist to come out of New York. But even though there’s a sense of great melancholy in the trailer, there’s also a taste of the Coen sense of humor. Inside Llewyn Davis opens in theaters December 6.
