Inside Llewyn Davis, Oscar Issac,

So, is the premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in just a couple of weeks the start of a long haul awards season run for the Coen Brothers' "Inside Llewyn Davis"? CBS Films is banking on it, as they've now marked the calendar with a release date for one of the most anticipated movies of the year.

Yes, the latest from the Coens will arrive in limited release on December 6th followed by a wide expansion on December 20th. Sweet. Plot details haven't been abundant, but Oscar Isaac leads the cast that includes Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake and John Goodman in a dramedy set against the '60s folk scene in New York City. We'll leave it to the Oscar prognosticators to battle it out if this long, long lead strategy is smart, or if it will be difficult to sustain that momentum for the next six months or so. Either way, it's coming.

Meanwhile, the studio has also dated "A Haunted House 2" for March 28th, but seriously, who gives a shit?
