Here’s a new long trailer for Inside Llewyn Davis, the new film from Joel and Ethan Coen. Oscar Isaac stars as the title character, who is making his way through a music career in ’60s New York as he also navigates a few tricky personal and business relationships with the likes of Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake, and John Goodman.
Everything we’ve seen of the film has been aces so far, and reactions out of festivals have been enthusiastic and full of praise. You’ll get a taste of that praise in the trailer thanks to a slew of pullquotes, but you’ll also get the feeling that the praise might just be justified, thanks to the exquisite tone of the performances, the comedy, and the film’s imagery.

Of all the Disney live-action fairy tale adaptations due out in the next several years, Rob Marshall‘s Into the Woods may be the biggest. The kitchen-sink musical features some of the most iconic characters of all time, from Cinderella to the Big Bad Wolf, and has huge, stellar cast to match.
The first still from the movie features arguably its starriest star of all, Meryl Streep. The normally lovely actress has clearly undergone several hours of makeup and an attitude adjustment for her role as the witch whose actions set the plot in motion, and it’s almost tough to recognize her here. Check out the image after the jump.

The new film from Joel and Ethan Coen is Inside Llewyn Davis, which stars Oscar Isaac as a singer/songwriter who finds his way through the folk music scene in Greenwich Village in the early ’60s. As happened with the Coens’ O Brother Where Art Thou?, which also featured a strong musical component, the music from the film is hitting a real-life stage. In this case, the Inside Llewyn Davis tunes will be brought to life in a benefit concert called Another Day, Another Time: Celebrating the Music of Inside Llewyn Davis.
The concert takes place this coming Sunday, and since most of you won’t be able to attend (because you’ll be home watching Breaking Bad, I expect) Showtime has done everyone a solid and made a deal to broadcast the show. There won’t even be a conflict with the Breaking Bad finale. Since Inside Llewyn Davis doesn’t open until December 6, Showtime will wait to broadcast the concert until December 13.

When most people think of Walt Disney films, they think of two genres: the animated musical and the live-action family film. Beauty and the Beast or 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Snow White or Swiss Family Robinson. What’s slightly more rare of late is a blend of the two, the live-action musical, as we’ve seen in films like Mary Poppins, Newsies, Enchanted or The Muppets. These come out much less frequently.
Next year, however, Disney will be releasing two live-action musicals: Muppets Most Wanted and one that’s likely to be their most elaborate and star-studded live action musical to date, Into The Woods.
Directed by Rob Marshall and based on the Tony Award-winning broadway show with music by Stephen Sondheim, Into the Woods just began production aimed at a Christmas 2014 release. Below, read the full press release including the list of confirmed cast members, such as Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, Emily Blunt, Chris Pine, Anna Kendrick, Christine Baranski and Tracy Ullman.
