Marcus Mumford, Oscar Isaac, Elvis Costello, Punch Brothers and Adam Driver.
Produced but not written by Joel and Ethan Coen, the new Fargo TV series will tell another blackly comic crime story in the same snowy climes.
And a little history about Dink's Song.
I saw Inside Llewyn Davis earlier this year and my immediate thought upon walking out of the screening was, I hope it's not too long until I can watch that again.
It's been months since Joel and Ethan Coen's Inside Llewyn Davis premiered and it will be months more until it's in cinemas.
Maybe Mrs. C's idea of spending Christmas with the family in the US is actually a very good one...
There are two films with screenplays credited to Sam Raimi, Joel Coen and Ethan Coen. This is the really, really nuts one.
Inside Llewyn Davis, the next Coen Bros. film, is to screen "for one night only" ahead of the Grammys. And then? Well, Joel Coen has told USA Today that the film may get a screening at Cannes. That should be more than enough to net the picture a US distributor. Coen said that the film […]
Written by the Coen Bros. and based on one of the best caper movies of the 1960s. Can't fail?
Plucked out of the middle of the elaborate con caper.
Blockbuster thriller author Jo Nesbø is behind a funny, violent and very messy crime yarn set on the Norway / Sweden border.Michael Moran takes a peek at the subtitles.
Men in Black director and sometime Coen Bros. collaborator Barry Sonnenfeld created the basic notions for Dinosaurs vs. Aliens before Morrison took these ideas and fleshed them out into comics and eventually a feature film screenplay.

The Coen Bros. next film, Inside Llewyn Davis, will be both set and filmed in New York – set during the late sixties, filming in early 2012. The brothers have just elected their lead actor, the man who will be playing the titular Mr. Davis, and it is, I'm rather happy to report, Oscar Isaac. […]
As revealed by Noah Baumbach, of all people, the Coen Bros. are working on a film filled with music. According to new information, its also a biopic – strictly, their first. The subject of the film seems to be Dave Van Ronk, a folk singer about whom I know relatively little, and everything I do […]
Noah Baumbach, director of Greenberg and The Squid and the Whale, seems to know a thing or two about the next Coen Bros. film. Still, he doesn't know everything, so the brothers had a few facts to fill him in with… live, on stage, during a public conversation at the Lincoln Center's Film Society. Here's […]
Before Alvin Sargent was the fix-up guy on the scripts for Sam Raimi's Spider-Man series, and before he wrote the superb screenplays for Ordinary People and Paper Moon, he was one of the writers of Ronald Neame's giddy, joyful caper film, Gambit. One of that film's taglines has always stuck with me since I saw […]
