Watch Oscar Isaac Perform A Song From The Coen Brothers' Inside Llewyn Davis
Between 2007 and 2010 we were lucky enough to get one Coen brothers movie per year, and it was a glorious time. Not only was it nice regularly getting films from two of the best filmmakers in Hollywood, the titles are some of the best that they have produced, racking up 20 Oscar nominations and four wins (albeit all of the wins were for No Country For Old Men, which just so happened to also take home Best Picture). Now, however, we're experiencing the biggest Coen drought since the early 90s, as there hasn't been two year gap between titles for them since 1994's The Hudsucker Proxy followed 1991's Barton Fink.
The good news, though, is that the drought will hopefully end soon. The Coens have been hard at work this year on their newest movie, Inside Llewyn Davis, which is a period piece set in New York during the 1960s that follows the life of a singer-songwriter in the heart of the folk music scene. Heading up the all-star cast, which includes John Goodman, Carey Mulligan, Garrett Hedlund, F. Murray Abraham, Adam Driver and Justin Timberlake, is Oscar Isaac as the titular character, who is said to be based on Dave Van Ronk. What's unfortunate is that with the exception of a few set photos, we haven't seen anything from the film, be it a trailer, a poster, or even an official still. Today we at least get something.
Coming Soon recently had the chance to attend a special event for the upcoming independent film 10 Years where Isaac performed his rendition of "Dink's Song" from Inside Llewyn Davis. The song is a classic from the era and has been performed by artists like Bob Sylan and Pete Seeger, as well as the aforementioned Van Ronk. You can watch the performance below.
Inside Llewyn Davis does not yet have a distributor in the United States - as previously reported - but I can't imagine that it will be hard for the movie to find a home. Stay tuned here on Cinema Blend for more news about the Coen's latest and when it will be coming to a theater near you!
