Definitely looking forward to this one. I really dig their casting choices. I heard it will be a 2012 release.

Can't wait for this. I'm hoping it'll be better than True Grit which was okay but not nearly as good as their previous 3 efforts.

Wow this film really flew under the radar.

Oscar Isaac is a badass actor. He was great in Drive, Robin Hood and Body of Lies.
Glad he is getting a starring role in a Coen Brothers film.

Cant wait for this

It was looking for a while like this would be a 2013 release, but Oscar Isaac hints otherwise:

Exclusive CS Video: Oscar Isaac Performs at 10 Years Brunch

by

Ed Douglas


Earlier today, ComingSoon.net attended a special brunch event at the Hotel Chantelle on the Lower East Side for Jamie Linden's 10 Years, an indie film with an amazing ensemble cast that includes Channing Tatum, his wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Rosario Dawson, Justin Long, Oscar Isaac, Kate Mara, Ron Livingston, Lynn Collins, Anthony Mackie, Ari Graynor, Chris Pratt, Max Minghella, Aubrey Plaza, Scott Porter, Aaron Yoo and Brian Geraghty.

Linden, Mackie, Dawson, Mara, Porter, Geraghty, Graynor and Minghella were all in attendance, but the real highlight was a musical performance by Oscar Isaac, who plays famed singer/songwriter Reeves, who spends his 10th high school reunion awkwardly avoiding his former classmates who only seem to be interested in hanging with someone famous. Instead, he spends a lot of quiet time with Kate Mara's character, the class outsider, and in a pivotal moment in the film he performs his hit song "Never Had" which solidifies their relationship.

Music has been playing a big part in Isaac's life and career in recent years. Besides performing two songs on official soundtrack for 10 Years, he also performed a version of Roxy Music's "Love is the Drug" with Carla Gugino for Zack Snyder's Sucker Punch, and he also plays the title role in the Coen Brothers' upcoming look at the ‘60s folk scene in Inside Llewyn Davis.

At the brunch event, Isaac sang "Never Had" from 10 Years, a song he co-wrote with Alan Doyle, as well as previewing the Coens' movie by performing the folk ballad "Dink's Song," which has been performed by the likes of Bob Dylan, Pete Seeger and Dave Van Ronk. It was rumored for some time that Van Ronk was the main influence for Isaac's character in the Coen Brothers movie. Before playing the song, he hinted that we may indeed see the Coens' movie by year's end although they've yet to announce who may be distributing it domestically.

Earlier in the brunch, we spoke with 10 Years writer/director Jamie Linden, who wrote McG's We Are Marshall and adapted Nicholas Sparks' Dear John for director Lasse Hallström. It was on the latter project where Linden met Channing Tatum and his producing partner Reid Carolin, who recently had a big hit with Steven Soderbergh's Magic Mike, and the three of them brainstormed the idea of assembling a big group of actors for a 10th high school reunion in 10 Years. Linden was extremely modest about the effort it took for a first-time director to pull together such a big cast and make sure each of their characters have strong story arcs, but he certainly has made a movie he can be proud of due to the performances he got from the Tatums, Isaac, Lynn Collins and others. (Linden has also adapted Carolyn Parkhurst's The Dogs of Babel for Once director John Carney and Steve Carell, which he hopes will get going soon.)

Enjoy the videos of Oscar Isaac's performance below, and we apologize in advance for any shaky camerawork or random people caught in the shot while we were trying to film it.

The Coens are pretty much my favorite working filmmakers and have constantly proven their versatility. This looks quite good, and I'm impressed by the cast in particular.

My expectation is a Cannes premiere and a fall bow, but I've been wrong before.

According to IMDb the release date is next month...!!!

That seems almost too good to be true (and a bit strange, actually).

IMDB has had that release date posted for like a year. It's incorrect. It will probably go to Cannes and then have a fall release date.

Wait... woah. I didn't know that was Mulligan until you just said that. It's been so long since any news was released about this movie that I had forgotten she was a part of the cast.

Recognized Carey Mulligan easy enough, but I didn't put it together right away that Davis is Standard from Drive.

Somewhat of an unexpected reunion between the two.


Either way this looks fantastic.

I'm pretty sure this will be good but probably not a great Coen bros movie, hints especially with the Feb. release date.

Good to know thx. I guess they still haven't updated on IMDB. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2042568/releaseinfo

I guess Carey Mulligan is still looking for the deluxe version.

I think they're holding off releasing this movie until next awards season, which means it's probably going to be a great movie. I think the Coen brothers are movie making miracle workers

Exactly. I was kinda worried when I saw the original Feb release date.

that's what I thought when I saw it, but now it's "official" so it's been given the proper treatment. I think there was a few new scenes in this trailer but most of it was old.

I hope I'm not the only one who is a massive fan of Oscar Issac, I think he's fantastic and could be a huge star.

It feels like I have been waiting for this one forever. A bunch of trailers and festivals later and it's finally getting close. I was a fan of True Grit, but I'm glad they are getting back to an original story like A Serious Man (which has become one of my favorite films). It looks hilarious and sad and amazing... just the kind of movie I want to see around the holidays. I can't wait.

You're not the only one. I'm a big fan and hope he gets big roles from here on out. He is such a chameleon and seems to be able to play any race/ethnicity he wants to which is quite impressive.

I'll try to come back when I have some more time for a proper review, but this is a pretty great movie. It's quintessential Coens, very much in line with the unique tone they do and at once unlike anything they've done before and very fitting in their ouevre.

The writing, direction, performances, and music are all top notch. Oscar Isaac is a revelation. Think of the New York, New York scene showstopper Carey Mulligan got in Shame, Isaac has 7 or 8 of those moments in this film directed to different characters/audiences in different states of mind in this film and each once brings the house down. I'm hoping against hope that he is granted the Oscar nomination he deserves.

It's not the absolute top tier of the Coens work (Fargo, Miller's Crossing, NCFOM) but it's just below that, on a par with and a companion piece to films like A Serious Man and Barton Fink.

I also can't help but wonder if, with a film as unconventionally and episodically structured as this is and with a thoroughly unlikable protagonist, if they're making an extended joke about formulaic screenwriting with "Saving the Cat."

8.5/10

One of the year's best.
