In just over a week, the Coens will present their latest "Inside Llewyn Davis" to the always fussy audiences at the Cannes Film Festival. While we'll have to wait until we actually see the thing, it's looking like another success from the sibling directors. CBS Films is already thinking Oscar, but if you're not going to France and can't wait until December, this red band trailer should hold over.

Inside Llewyn Davis, Oscar Isaac

In just over a week, the Coens will present their latest "Inside Llewyn Davis" to the always fussy audiences at the Cannes Film Festival. While we'll have to wait until we actually see the thing, it's looking like another success from the sibling directors. CBS Films is already thinking Oscar, but if you're not going to France and can't wait until December, this red band trailer should hold over.

Granted, it's more or less the same thing we saw at the beginning of the year, albeit with a few extra beats and some more cussin', but it's still mightily impressive. Oscar Isaac seems to live in the role as the title character, a folk singer in the '60s trying to find his path, in a relationship with an awesomely icy Carey Mulligan and... yes, indeed that's Justin Timberlake dropping the suit and tie for some more rustic threads. Visually, it's utterly gorgeous with cinematographer Bruno Delbonnel ("Across The Universe," "Harry Potter & The Half-Blood Prince") doing a bang up job subbing in for Coens regular Roger Deakins who was unavailable thanks to "Skyfall." The overly feel of a faded or fading era is really nicely rendered -- the images look like a photograph left out in the sun.

Give it a look below. "Inside Llewyn Davis" opens on December 6th and in case you're wondering, the Bob Dylan song is "Farewell," from The Bootleg Series, Vol 9: The Witmark Demos: 1962-1964
