ANOTHER LLEWYN DAVIS TRAILER
Well, you can't say that CBS Films hasn't been about making sure to provide plenty of opportunities to sneak a peak at The Coen Brothers' "Inside Llewyn Davis". The newest trailer (and a longish one at that) dropped this week and one blogger noted that it was the fifth trailer for the film. Seems like a lot.
Nevertheless, here's the trailer from YouTube and a few posts that accompanied it this week:
And here are the posts:

We also saw this week some new stills and a new clip from Abdellatif Kechiche's controversial "Blue is the Warmest Color" set for a limited release here in the U.S. on Oct. 25.

PAYNE NOW AND LATER
I loved Alexander Payne's "Nebraska". It doesn't hurt that I seems like I know the people and the place that the story focuses on. It also doesn't hurt that Bruce Dern was unflaggingly kind to me and my folks during the festival this year. All that aside, I still think it's a fine film and, personally, I suspect that it's going to get a good bit of Oscar attention before it's all said and done.
Its roll out continued this week with its presentation at the New York Film Festival. Steve Zeitchik writes about that for The New York Times:
Meanwhile, director Payne is apparently on the cusp of a new project which will immediately go into the "Coming Attractions" collection. The Playlist reports that Payne will direct "The Judge's Will" with Fox Searchlight producing. The post for that is here:
GRAVITY AND OSCAR
Awards Daily's Sasha Stone offered this meditation this week on the possibility that "Gravity" might break new ground come Oscar night on Mar. 2:
ALL IS LOST ABOUT TO SET SAIL
The Fantastic J.C. Chandor/Robert Redford collaboration, "All is Lost" opens next week. Go see it. I'm likely to see it again (along with second viewings of "12 Years", "Llewyn Davis", "Gravity" and "Nebraska"). Maureen Dowd at The New York Times posted an interview with Redford yesterday. You can catch that here:
Also, here's Kris Tapley's (HitFix/InContantion) chat with writer/director Chandor from Telluride:
More on Monday. Have a great weekend!
