Coen Brothers Debut First Trailer for 'Inside Llewyn Davis'

Inside Llewyn Davis

We still don't have a solid release date for the next Coen Brothers joint, but we seem to be getting close: They've just released the trailer for the upcoming Inside Llewyn Davis.

Inspired by the life and times of Greenwich Village folk icon Dave Van Ronk, Llewyn stars Oscar Isaac (who performs in the film) as a songwriter searching for a way out of the rut he's in -- and finding some potential help in the form of a Manic Pixie Dream Girl (Carey Mulligan), another musician (Justin Timberlake), an older dude (John Goodman), and/or that one guy who met Tron (Garrett Hedlund).

The Hollywood Reporter reminds us that Isaac has a bit of a musical history of his own; as he told them last summer, "I've been playing for 20 years, so it was kind of the perfect storm of things that came together for me to be a part of it. We did all the music live, no playback; it's like a concert movie. There's like six or seven songs in it."

All of which is interesting, but really, it's a Coen Brothers picture -- we were already poised to hand over our ticket money. Check out your first glimpse of the finished product below.
