As if this day couldn’t get any better. Here is the theatrical trailer for Inside Llewyn Davis:
While any Joel and Ethan Coen movie is worth waiting for, many of us are champing at the bit to see “Inside Llewyn Davis,” their portrait of the 60s Greenwich Village folk scene that spawned Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Mimi and Richard Farina and the inspiration for this film, Dave Van Ronk. Some of us hoped to see the film loosely based on Van Ronk’s memoir “The Mayor of MacDougal Street” in time for the 2012 holiday season, but it’s more likely to turn up in Coen-friendly Cannes.
We got our hands on an exclusive invite from Nonesuch Records and T Bone Burnett to a special early preview screening on February 9 on the Sony lot, with a link to the first “Inside Llewyn Davis” trailer. The Coens and producer Scott Rudin (Oscar-winner “No Country for Old Men,” “True Grit”) made the movie with backing from Canal Plus and no domestic distributor.
Accompanied by Dylan, the trailer’s exquisite photography by Jean-Pierre Jeunet cinematographer Bruno Delbonnel takes me back to my NYC youth. It provides tantalizing glimpses of folk singer Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac) navigating the Village scene with guitar and cat, tangling with his love interest (Isaac’s “Drive” co-star Carey Mulligan) who gives him a hard time and crashing a recording session with musicians Justin Timberlake (“The Social Network”) and Adam Driver (“Girls”). Also in the film are Garrett Hedlund (who sang in “Country Strong”), John Goodman (“Argo”) and F. Murray Abraham as a club owner who wants Davis to perform for him in order to land a gig at his club.
The trailer leaves us panting for more.
Yay! Trouble with the Curve is officially out today in cinemas across the United States. It stars the legendary Clint Eastwood, the sweet Amy Adams and of course the forever charming Justin Timberlake!
If you are a sports fanatic, or enjoy laid back/feel good movies this is the right choice. You will also fall in love with Justin’s character. No doubt! So make sure you see it and share what you think of it in the comments and/or Timberbiel.
Here’s an exclusive MUST-SEE clip of Clint and Amy talking about working with Justin on the film, Trouble With The Curve!! Check it out! It also features new scenes from the movie.
Trouble with the curve has received mixed reviews from the critics but they have been fairly good for the most part. Check out some great reviews of the movie & Justin’s performance below:
One thing the script does so well is tell a few parallel stories with increasing confidence. A colleague after this afternoon’s screening noted the classical nature of this, which is a good point. You don’t see it often (in this case, Gus and Mickey’s story is told against the backdrop of a discovery yarn about a young up-and-coming high school player), but there’s also the added virtue of a love story that actually works quite nicely.
And that’s where Justin Timberlake comes in. I bought him fully as a fellow scout of Gus’s (formerly scouted himself, with echoes of “Moneyball”) with eyes for Mickey
The actors’ effortless interplay is full of tetchy, bickersome humor, but also believably steeped in the characters’ shared history, the defining incident of which will be unpacked in somewhat heavy-handed flashbacks. Fortunately, the film frequently shifts its focus from Mickey’s daddy issues toward her slowly blossoming relationship with Johnny, an expected but winning development that affords no shortage of charming moments between Adams and the ever-appealing Timberlake.
Eastwood, taking a rare respite from the directing reins, is at ease in the role, never hitting a false note as he creates a three-dimensional man and very recognizable character finally dealing with everything he’s neglected as he nears the end of his career and life. This is Eastwood the way we love to see him: the performance he was born to give, and his best in years. His chemistry with Adams is perfection and you root for these two despite the curves thrown in their own relationship. Timberlake also scores, as the former pop star is surprisingly engaging as a young scout with an eye both for players but also Adams.
Also here is a critical acclaim trailer where we finally see Justin & Amy engage in a romantic kiss. How sweet:
Well…What a great way to start the day. Warner Bros has released TONS of Trouble with the Curve goodies. There are interviews with the cast, the first clips of the movie and behind the scenes b-rolls.
Justin’s character in ‘Curve’ is so incredibly likeable. You just can’t help but fall in love with him.
He is funny, handsome and charming in this film. What more can you ask for?
I’d go ahead and say he is just playing himself because that’s the way he is in real life.
Enjoy below. There’s even more stuff at traileraddict:
