Red Band Trailer for Upcoming Coen Brothers’ Film: “Inside Llewyn Davis”

As noted previously on Chimesfreedom, filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen have been working on Inside Llewyn Davis (2013), a movie about the early 1960s Greenwich Village folk scene. As the Coen Brothers prepare for the movie’s Cannes showing, they have released a “red band” trailer (i.e., a trailer that is only approved for mature audiences). So if you are mature, check out the new trailer for Inside Llewyn Davis, which does not reveal too much about the plot of the movie.

As in the previous trailer we posted in January, the song playing in this new red band trailer is Bob Dylan’s “Farewell.” Dylan wrote the song in 1963 but it did not appear on any official record releases until 2010 on The Bootleg Series, Vol. 9: The Witmark Demos: 1962-1964.

Oscar Isaac stars in Inside Llewyn Davis, which also features Carey Mulligan and Justin Timberlake. The film, reportedly roughly based on singer Dave Van Ronk’s book The Mayor of MacDougal Street, has taken awhile to arrive. But from the trailer, it might be worth the wait. You may see some still photos from the film on DigitalSpy.
