I haven’t seen it yet, but according to our friend Brad at RopeofSilicon, the new trailer for Inside Llewyn Davis “spoils two plot details within the first 50 seconds,” so proceed with caution. He suggests skipping the first 50 seconds, so if you’re so inclined to avoid spoilers at all costs, consider yourselves warned. I watched the whole thing, partly because I’m a romantic, dangerous writer-type, and partly because I’ve never seen a Coen Brothers film where my enjoyment rested on the surprise of some Shyamalan-esque plot twist. But who knows, maybe I’ll regret this day for years to come. It wouldn’t be the first time.
Inside Llewyn Davis opens December 6th, and there’s not much I need to tell you about it at this point. I plan to see this so hard that other theater goers exchange panicked looks and flee the auditorium.
Has anyone ever looked so much like a sixties folk hero as Garrett Hedlund? He legitimately looks like beat-era snapshot. The only other person I can think of with as much of a throwback look is Ben Roethlisberger, who looks like a gangster’s henchman from the thirties.
