The eighth In Competition banner for the Coen Brothers at the Cannes Film Festival is their first in six years, since their eventual Best Picture Oscar winner No Country for Old Men. Though there isn’t a chance for the intrepid filmmaking duo to repeat the same success here, the feeling coming out of Inside Llewyn Davis is that the brothers would not have it any other way. Indeed, while terming their latest work the worst thing they’ve put out since The Ladykillers might send alarm bells ringing, when you consider their body of work since – No Country, Burn After Reading, A Serious Man and True Grit – it begins to seem not quite so bitter a pill to swallow. Tackling the New York folk music scene of the 1960s, the Coens’ latest sees the titular character (Oscar Isaac) stumbling through the city by the seat of his pants, trying to make it as a musician in »

Cannes has always been good to the Coens, the festival's heady blend of arthouse and popularity suiting them down to the ground. In 1991, Barton Fink won the Palme d'Or as well as acting and directing awards. Fargo and The Man Who Wasn't There both won directing gongs and they've had seven films in competition. Their latest work, Inside Llewyn Davis (2013) - a picaresque odyssey in the life of an also-ran folk songster - must be a firm favourite for a prize in this edition as well. It's the early sixties, well before Dylan, Phil Ochs and Peter, Paul and Mary, and folk singer Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac) is waiting for his big break.
It's winter in New York and his adventures are both comically trivial (he loses a friend's cat) and potentially dramatic (he's just got his friend's wife, Jean (Carey Mulligan), pregnant). Davis is beginning to realise that he may not fulfil his dreams. »

It's been 13 years since Joel and Ethan Coen gave us the bluegrass energy of O Brother, Where Art Thou? and now they've jumped forward 30 years to 1961 and the folk music scene of Greenwich Village with Inside Llewyn Davis, a film so perfect it appears almost effortless. Opening in the Gaslight Cafe, the film's title character croons on stage under the soft glow of the spotlight, capturing the attention of the audience to the point one man's cigarette is only a bent stick of ashes, defying gravity as he looks on without moving. As an audience member, this scene, captured beautifully by director of photography Bruno Delbonnel, immediately places you in the time and place. Over the next 105 minutes we'll follow Lleywn Davis (Oscar Isaac) as he moves from couch to couch, looking for a place to escape the cold New York winter as he hopes to fulfill his dream to »

The sounds of the early 1960s folk music revival float on the air like a strange, intoxicating perfume in the Coen brothers’ “Inside Llewyn Davis,” a boldly original, highly emotional journey through Greenwich Village nightclubs, a bleak New York winter, and one man’s fraught efforts to reconcile his life and his art. A product of the same deeply personal end of the Coens’ filmmaking spectrum previously responsible for the likes of “Barton Fink” and “A Serious Man,” this darkly comic musical drama with an elliptical narrative and often brusque protagonist won’t corral the same mass audience as “No Country for Old Men” and “True Grit.” But strong reviews — for the pic itself and its stupendous soundtrack — should make this December release an awards-season success for distrib CBS Films.
As they did with the 1940s Hollywood setting of “Barton Fink,” the Coens have again taken a real time and »

"Star Trek Into Darkness" hits theaters Friday, making it the 12th film in the "Star Trek" movie franchise. With Benedict Cumberbatch filling the "bad guy" shoes here, it seems only fair that we take a look back and rank all of the Star Trek movie villains that have graced the big screen over the past three decades. You're welcome.
11. The Whale Probe From Space - "Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home" (1986)
This is probably the weirdest villain on the list because, well, it's a whale-loving space monster looking to reunite with its Humpback brethren by emptying all of Earth's oceans.
10. Sybok - "Star Trek V: The Final Frontier" (1989)
The half-brother of Spock, Sybok (Laurence Luckinbill) is pretty much a backwards Vulcan. Emotions are more important than logic to him. Here, he brainwashes everyone so he can get to the middle of space to meet God...who turns »

The new drama adapts "...the music, politics and spirit of a revolutionary period in American culture", based on the novel "The Mayor of MacDougal Street" by author Dave Van Ronk.
"...'Dave Van Ronk', one of the founding figures of the 1960's folk revival, was far more than that. A pioneer of modern acoustic blues, a songwriter, arranger and singer, he became one of the most influential guitarists of that era.
"'This is a first-hand account by a major player including encounters with Bob Dylan, Tom Paxton, Phil Ochs and Joni Mitchell, as well as older luminaries including Reverend Gary Davis, Mississippi John Hurt and Odetta..."

According to HitFix, F. Murray Abraham has been upped to series regular after playing retired black ops specialist Dar Adal in a few key scenes in Season 2, while Sarita Choudhury will finally be getting more screen time (and, we assume, moving back home) as Saul's wife, Mira.
Although not much is known about Season 3 of "Homeland," it will pick up during the aftermath of the terrorist attack at the end of Season 2 that caused Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) to leave the country with the help of Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes).
Additionally, the new season will find Carrie and Saul working to rebuild their personal and professional lives in the midst of a media firestorm about the terrorist attack and the search for Brody. »

The actors, who played Dar Adal and Saul’s estranged wife Mira in Season 2, have been promoted from guest-star status, Hitfix reports.
Both characters tie into Saul’s storyline, which may get more play now that he’s been named acting director of the CIA. Further, the site reports, Adal’s retired black-ops specialist may be brought out of retirement to help beef up the agency, which lost so many operatives in an Abu Nazir-masterminded explosion. »

We don't know much yet about "Homeland" season 3, which will debut on September 29, but we know that season 2 ended with Mandy Patinkin's Saul as acting director of the CIA after most of the high level officers were blown up by Abu Nazir's people. And now I can exclusively report that the season will have two new regulars, both with ties to Saul: F. Murray Abraham as retired black ops specialist Dar Adal, and Sarita Choudhury as Saul's estranged wife Mira. Both have been promoted from guest star status. At the end of season 2, "Homeland" producers Alex Gansa »

The film takes place in the folk music scene of New York’s Greenwich Village in the 1960s, and while this trailer isn’t wholly different from the previous one we saw, there are a few bits of R-rated new footage here and there that are spot-on Coen brothers. Set against the appropriate musical stylings of one Bob Dylan, the trailer highlights impressive turns from stars Oscar Isaac and Carey Mulligan, as well as yet another great Coen brothers performance from John Goodman. December feels like an eternity away knowing that Inside Llewyn Davis is just waiting for us. Hit the jump to watch the trailer and to see the new poster. The film also stars Justin Timberlake, »

Murray Abraham. The story’s set in the 60s and takes place in New York City, during a time where all popular songs played by New York-based folk musicians seemed to come from everywhere except their hometown. »
