The Coen Brothers' Inside Llewyn Davis Could Premiere At Cannes, Two New Images Revealed
Earlier this month we posted the first trailer for Joel and Ethan Coen's latest film, Inside Llewyn Davis, but while the trailer was absolutely amazing, it was also a devastating teaser. Unlike many of their recent projects, the brothers decide to make their folk-music driven period piece without a distributor in place, meaning that we still don't know who will end up releasing the movie or when it might actually happen. That said, it is expected that it will be coming out later this year, and now one of the co-writer/directors has revealed where the movie might be having its premiere.
The New York Times recently had the chance to sit down with Joel Coen to discuss the new work, and in their conversation - which begins with the hypothetical situation that inspired the Coens to write the script - the filmmaker revealed that they are currently contemplating having Inside Llewyn Davis world premiere at this year's Cannes Film Festival. While nothing is set in stone, Coen mentions that not having a distributor allowed them to finish the movie at their own pace and not have to worry about having it ready for awards season. Should the film play at the French film festival they expect that it will also be sold to a studio there and pick up an official release date.
The interview also featured two brand spanking new stills from the movie, which you can see below.
And just because I love all of you so much here's that amazing trailer once again:
Hopefully come May we will know exactly when we will have a chance to see the whole thing.
