Inside Llewyn Davis
You might not be shocked to learn that crusty, crotchety, senior members of The Playlist staff aren't exactly big on Mumford & Sons and their hooray-for-everything foot-stamping singalongs. But Marcus Mumford certainly knows his roots, and he's letting them shine on the Coens' forthcoming "Inside Llewyn Davis." Corralled to help write some of the original songs on the folk-music-world-set dramedy, one of the highlights is "Fare Thee Well (Dink's Song)," a take on the folk classic. It's been powering the most recent trailers, and now you can hear it in full.

So, Mumford & Sons is still a thing, particularly if you're into boot-stomping, arena anthems that all sound the same. And now, it seems the band has graduated to the level where they can round up a bunch of celebs to appear in their videos, but kudos to them for nailing this star-filled concept pretty much dead on.

OK, slightly old news. We already knew that members of Mumford and Sons were collaborating with Justin Timberlake, Oscar Isaac and the cast members of the Coen Brothers' '60s folk scene movie "Inside Llewyn Davis." The likely connection is that lead Son, Marcus Mumford, is married to the film's co-lead Carey Mulligan and well, he's a pretty well-respected musician to boot.

This Christmas will mark whole two years since the last Coen Brothers' film, an absence that's somewhat foreign to us consdering the pair had a prolific run of consecutive films between 2007 and 2010 with "No Country For Old Men," "Burn After Reading," "A Serious Man" and "True Grit." While we've been working under the impression the brothers' latest effort, "Inside Llewyn Davis," would be unveiled next year at the earliest, star Oscar Isaac has thrown a spanner in the works as he recently "hinted that we may indeed see the Coens' movie by year's end although they've yet to announce who may be distributing it domestically."

While it's definitely one of our most anticipated films still to come this year, Andrea Arnold's "Wuthering Heights" has also been the tightest kept under wraps. A new take on the famed tale, the film has a script by Olivia Hetreed (”Girl with a Pearl Earring”) and boasts a cast of smaller names including newcomer James Howson as the tortured Heathcliff being joined by Kaya Scodelario as Cathy and Nichola Burley as Isabella Linton. The film wrapped last fall and seemed like a contender for this year's Cannes Film Festival and obviously, it wasn't part of the lineup. So all signs now point to a fall bow and it looks like Arnold's take on the material is going to be something quite unexpected.
